Female cat Peeing on bathroom rug but going #2 in litter box?
We have 2 cats who have grown up together: a 16-year-old male and a female, Sasha, almost 15 years old. Sasha has suddenly started peeing on my husband's bathroom rug. What's weird though is that she still goes #2 in the litter box, strange.
We took her to the vet this week and she had labs. Besides being overweight and having an abscessed tooth that needs pulling, she's totally healthy. They said it must be behavioral.
Our male cat is very, very dominant, always has been. But this isn't new behavior, she's used to it. She doesn't act scared of him, she still walks around him, etc.
He has diabetes and kidney disease and originally I theorized that maybe the smell of his urine was bad to her, but she poops in there so that can't be it.
We can't figure out why she has suddenly started this. And we definitely don't know how to stop it if we can't find the cause. Any help is greatly appreciated.
