Cat's that don't like to use their Litterboxes

So, my cat has decided to piss on my floors, that's TWICE this week. I'm getting a little annoyed, I keep her litter box clean, I give her all the loving she needs, I give her treats that she loves. What else can a cat want? My floors are hardwood, so it's not a good thing when she does this, not that it's a good thing with any other floors, but at least the smell won't stick to ceramic flooring as much as wood. What the hell takes that kinda smell out?.....ARGH* :mad:
Anyhow, has anyone had this problem with their cat? What's a good solution? Adoption? Throw the little shit on the BBQ and invite some friends over Hannibal Lecter style? Seriously, I'm uber upset right now.

What is your living situation like? How many people, how many pets? Cats sometimes pee on the floor when they don't have enough of their own space.

No other pet's in the building even.

whatever the reason your cat peed on the floor once.... they will now continue to do it until you use a pet odour remover product to remove their scent from that area of the floor.... my roomie had a prob where my cat peed under his desk once because she got scared as a kitten.. and he didn't clean it up properly.. ie. just used water, etc..... because of that the cat would pee there no prob

finally we got an liquid odour remover product and my cat has not done anything outside her litter box in like 2-3 months

you should be able to get the stuff at any pet store...

p.s. we have hardwood floors as well....... it gets in the cracks...

My cat only does this when the litter boxes are in dire need of cleaning, so it's my fault, not his.

I'll have to look into that.
I've been using floor cleaner, and then wood cleaner right after.
But I still catch a wiff of it when I'm nearby.

UTI = Urinary Tract Infection. If you haven't changed brands of litter lately, or pissed your cat off, and they start peeing all over the place out of the blue, it could be a medical condition.

Take her to the vet.

no those absolutely will not help

the only thing that will perfume the area and mask the scent sufficiently to stop the cat from confusing the area with one that is OK to pee/etc on.. is a proper pet odour product. Trusta-me :)

i tried both those things as well :) no worky

My cat hardly ever uses her litter box. She prefers to do it outside. Only when she is cooped up for long periods - like when it's raining or if it's very cold - she will use it.

It could be a number of things, if it keeps up definetly take her to the vet because it will prob be a urinary tract infection. When my cat gets mad or the litter box needs to be cleaned she will go in the tub. Its kinda funny, easy to clean up too!!!!!

I just bought the PetZyme stuff that gets rid of smell 100%
Stain and odor remover from PetSmart.

Hopefully this helps.... and I didn't test the product on my hardwood floors first...only let it sit in a small are afor like 20 minutes, instead of overnight to check for colorfastness.
