I have 9 year old male cat who has a history of urinary issues. We had him to the vet 2 weeks ago because he was straining to pee, but he had no blockages, no UTI, nothing. The vet basically thinks he is "stressed" probably because of my pregnancy hormone changes.
Since that vet appointment he has been peeing on my large area rug in the living room. The exact same spot every time. There is nothing wrong with him, he's just not using the box.
We clean with Nature's Miracle (which also includes a repellant that seems to only last for about 24 hours) and then with oxyclean. He continues to pee on the carpet and he's going to ruin my rug!
I don't know what to do. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm open to trying anything short of putting him down or giving him away.
ETA: I did just order a Feliway diffuser and some repellant spray. We'll see if that works, but if anyone has additional suggestions, I'm open to them
