For the last couple of months, my female cat has been peeing on the carpets. I wasn't sure at first if it was because she is just getting old or what the problem was. (she's not sick- vet was the first stop) But it was happening on a near daily basis and it was making me crazy. Only 2 rooms in my apartment have carpet- the office and the bedroom. Everything else is laminate. I started locking the office door at night, but there was no way I could lock 2 cats out of my bedroom at night. I know they will just pitch a fit.

Anyway, last week someone suggested putting a plate of food down on the problem areas, because cats won't pee where they eat. I put a food dish in the bedroom in one of the bad spots and nobody has peed in there in over a week! WOO!

Of course now I do have an extra food dish to fill, LOL, but I think it's a small price to pay.

Keep calm and carry on.

What has worked for me in the past was putting catnip in the litterbox.

OK I have cats nearly my entire life, and have never heard of either of these two things. The food thing makes sense though. Good to know.
