To prevent your kitty from urinating out of her litter box, you need to understand the reasons she does this. One of the main reasons cats urinate on the carpet is that they are stressed or anxious. Just like some people do, cats experience stress, and urinating out of the litter box is a common response to stress. Try to identify the source of the stress in your cat’s life – perhaps you are away too much, or your kitty needs more play time. You can also try a pheromone diffuser product to help calm your cat’s nerves as well.
If stress isn’t the problem, make sure you don’t have existing spots on your carpet where cat urine is already present. Chances are, your kitty is smelling the cat urine that’s already there and re-marking the spot. This is particularly common if the previous occupants of your home had cats. If you suspect that your cat is marking in a pre-soiled area, use a blacklight to find the cat urine, and then clean it with a product specifically formulated for cleaning up cat urine. Never use water as water will only make the cat urine smell even worse!
Cats can also urinate out of their litter boxes for medical reasons. A urinary tract infection is one of the most common medical reasons for this. If you suspect your cat has a urinary tract infection, see your veterinarian right away. Your cat may also be uncomfortable with his litter box. Try to use a litter box that doesn’t have a door or an automatic scooping mechanism, as these can scare cats and discourage them from using the litter box.
Understanding the causes of cats urinating out of the litter box is the key to preventing it from happening in the first place. You can’t totally eliminate the problem, but you can reduce the chance of an accident.
