    Maybe other quilters here with kitties can help me out here.

    I have two cats and for the last few nights one of them has been urinating on my bed. I haven't caught them in the act so I'm not for certain which one it is, but I think the cat in question is Eddie (male grey tabby) as Ophelia (little black calico female) never ever goes into my room (don't think she's too fond of me) whereas Eddie will walk right in if the door's open. This isn't the first time its happened, but never like three days in a row.

    Their litter is clean. They're getting fed. They're perfectly healthy cats. They're spoiled with cat grass, treats, and toys and get petted all the time so they are loved. However, they're acting like they're in heat so that might be one reason they might be doing this. But how do I get them to stop? I am sick of coming in from work to find the quilts on my bed were used as a cat box.

    once a cat urinary on fabric/rugs, they will continue to do it again in the same spot, I had to remove my rugs in the bathroom. i would wash them and the cat will go back again in that spot. I bet it's a male cat. Be careful that it dosen't has a infection or cystals in the urine, boy cats can get these easily. You need to shut the door to your bedroom.

    is the boy neutered. that will usually stop the territory marking if that is his problem. try the pet store. they have some product to put on the spot to make them stop using that spot. sometimes that will resolve the problem.

    unfortunately you will probably just have to make the bedroom off limits.

    I would have a vet visit. He or she may have an infection and it can be dangerous if untreated. Not to be ignorant, but can you smell the urine? If it has a really strong odor he or she(one in a while) could be spraying instead of urinating. This is much harder to stop than regular urinating. I had a female who would back up to a door and spray. We finally took that door out of our house and replaced it. She constantly had infections no matter what we did for her, which caused the spraying to begin. I also used some of the cleaners from Petsmart to neutralize the odor.

    I agree with Sadiemae. Male cats can contract UTI's and not have any control over the situation, not wanting to be a bad kitty. Then I've had a female that whenever she got upset with us decided she would use different areas as a litter box (no longer have that cat).

    If your tom cat is fine and is just developing a habit you have a problem. I over came this with one cat by spraying a large cloth bag laid over my bed with orange and filling it with orange peel.

    Most cats hate orange. It's worth a try with your boy.

    Afraid it might be easier to reassemble a broken egg! Good luck!

    We had a female that would do that ... she was an 'odd' cat ... spent most of her time in one room ... would litterally run to the kitchen and eat and run back ... then run past the bathroom (and litterbox) and go upstairs and pee on my daughter's bed ... we no longer have that cat

    Sounds like UTI in the male. Get him to the vet pronto!
