I haven't tried that no. Is it just any anti bacterial or a specific brand because I have been through 36 bottles of zoflora which is anti bacterial and hasn't worked. Speaking of which, I have literally just put my hand down the back of the sofa cushion and it has come out soaked through. She has peed again!!!! I just cleaned the sofa an hour ago!!!

Have you tried an antibacterial spray, you can get a spray from Tesco. You can also get one from the vet, but a LOT more expensive, it neutralises the bacteria and makes it far less likely to get repeat pees and poos. I hope that it helps.

It stopped one of mine doing inappropriate pees. :hug: :hug: :hug:

Health & Behaviour General / She keeps peeing on my sofa!!!!!
« Last post by Catloverchloe on January 20, 2019, 17:54:19 PM »
Guys please give me some advice!!! I have a crushed velvet corner sofa and an 8 month old female kitten. She uses my couch as a litter box constantly and it is getting to the point I am struggling to cope. Her litterboxes are always clean and she spends a lot of time outside and she does use her litterboxes but she uses lots of other things as well. It is so bad now that I took all the cushion covers off of the sofa and then dowsed the cushions in pet friendly zoflora and also washed all the covers in detergent and zoflora. After 2 days of scrubbing my couch, she hadn't peed on it. I put the covers back on and the next morning I woke up and my couch was saturated in pee and a few poops as well!!! Not only my sofa though, if there is a pile of clothes, she instantly runs to them and pees on them. I was doing my laundry and I threw all the dirty clothes downstairs to go in the washer. She ran down the stairs and quickly peed all over them before I could get to her.
I do not want to re-home her and it is not even on the cards but it is at the point now where I'm in tears because I can't physically keep up with the cleaning, not to mention the damage to my couch!!!
She has been checked out by the vets and is totally healthy so definitely no health problems
Thanks guys!!

What does she look like?   ;D  Bet she's a little cutie.

Does she get on well generally with Cleo?  I wouldnt worry too much about it, as I suspect of it gets on Cleo's nerves, she'll soon let Jessie know about it. 

What you could try is when she attempts to suckle, give her a little soft toy of her own and encourage her to play with it. 

Our Macbeenz MacSquee used to have a little mouse with dangly legs that he would tote round all over with him, and one of Rosella's cats had a little Shaun the Sheep that he took everywhere.   :)




Photo of Jessie was taken literally 5 minutes ago. And a photo of her and Cleo.

They are absolutely brilliant together. Always playing away. I noticed that Cleo just thinks she wants to play and starts rolling about with her.

I will try that thank you. She has a little teddy that I took in the carrier when I went to collect her and sits in her bed.

Thank you for your replies. I appreciate it. I just thought it was a little weird. She has been here for 2 weeks and Friday night was the first we have ever seen her do it then again yesterday. She has the vets on Friday for her wee started pack (jags, flee/worming, microchip etc) and a health check so I will speak to them then and see what they suggest.

I was thinking it might be a comfort thing too.  When we had Ross, he used to suckle my right ear lobe.  It never bothered me.  It made him happy, bless him.  I suspect She will grow out of it.

I wouldn't go down the cat milk route now, but you may find the suckling is more a comfort thing rather than needing it - while they may be able to eat and use litter trays that young, they still have a lot of learning to do from mum/siblings, so she might have a few quirks from being taken away too young.

Same as that, I have all my cats on the vet Pet plan, I pay £11 per month each, but it saves me about 1/3 of costs for all the routine treatments. jabs, flea treatment (Advocate) and Milbemax. Now  just have to find an insurance for 5 cats that includes dentals.

Any suggestions welcome. :)
