Starting to really hate my cat.

Answered 4 years ago

He's such an asshole. Honestly, he has a kitty litter and access to outside but he continues to piss and shit in my house, I'm so over it. Yesterday he pissed under my Christmas tree, on presents, through to the tree skirt (which I made myself and took ages!) his meows are in a league of their own! He's CONTANTLY meowing and so loudly and annoying. For food but he gets fed heaps, like honestly he's not hungry.
My daughter loves him so I can't get rid of him but I'm starting to really really hate him.

Have an answer?

Not always true. Many cats would see this as a direct invasion of their territory and it might make the problem worse.

Have you taken him to the vet? Cats are prone to get urinary problems, might explain why he's urinating in odd places. Also, try changing the type of litter and/or box. It could be he doesn't like one of those. One suggestion we were given was to have one litter box more than cats, so 1 cat, 2 boxes...2 cats, 3 boxes, etc. I love cats dearly but they really can be quite the little jackass.

Oh thank you! I'll try the extra boxes! He gets regular vet checks and aside from "anxiety" he's perfectly fine

Oh, and you can't just clean the spots with regular cleaner. You need something that actually eliminates the smell completely. Cats can still smell the cat scent and will keep going in that spot. I use Piss Off. I give it a good clean and then spray that. Works quite well. Aluminium foil is good to put over the spot after its clean and dry. They don't like the feel of it so even if they keep trying to go back, that will discourage them. Not that I'm speaking from experience, oh wait I am! Dang cat nearly ruined the carpet in one of my kids rooms before we got it under control. Good luck!

Put pepper down were he goes pretty peppermint oil and have a spray bottle and give a squirt when he meowing or goes to pee some where. Make sure he is desexed and have it double checked I had my queen desexed and she bloody still had another litter they didn't do it properly. Try different litters and a second tray. Good luck I have a friend who has a cat that dose the same and it still dose it 10years later if it was mine I would have rehome it by now nothing worse than a cat piss smelling house

We have a screeching cat as well. Drives me up the wall. I chase it around the house and give it a whack and that shuts it up for while. Don't have the pooing and pissing problem. If we did the cat would be gone.

I'm pregnant? But he's been much the same since I got him nearly 2 years ago, his meow has always been inssesant, had a few accidents here and there but the peeing and pooping is way more regular!

I'm sure I am lol! I'm just questioning whether that could effect his behaviour lol

REPLY

Yes it could affect his behaviour. But if it's continues from before you were pregnant you need to take him To the vet. Is he desexed? That's also a massive factor.

Is he fixed? That should stop the wees and poop around the house. Is the litter kept fresh and scooped? They won't use it if its too dirty.

REPLY

Yep, fixed and chipped and vaxed. Clean the litter every morning, but don't really need to seeing as he just uses the floor, he's honestly just an asshole.

Is the litter anywhere near his food bowl? They don't like to use litter near where they eat

Nope. Food in the kitchen, litter in the laundry, not near each other.

Depending on your state (I don't think it's a national thing) unless you have a cat run, cats are not allowed to be outdoors. So if you're going to find a way to do that, check the laws in your area.

I think my cat has learnt that if he wants to go outside he has to piss on something 😂 He will start spraying then when i yell at him he just casually walks to the door and waits for it to open. I'm sure there only mission of the day is being an ass.

My sister had a cat like that. Dad kicked it permanently outside after it pooped and peed on his bed and he is allergic.
The cat moved in with the neighbours

I kick him outside a lot when he pisses and shits inside but he will literally sit at the door for hours screeching 😡
