Also if mew have more than one kitty then mew need to be certain who's doing it and/or whether its a group endeavour.
This is completely irresponsible and we would suggest that before adopting or getting a cat that mew think long and hard about the next 20+ years - as that's how long a cat can live - and make a commitment that you're going to keep kitty furever, no matter what. If mew're not 110% in it fur the life of your cat life then don't ever get one.

*How to determine whether your kitty has a toileting issue or a spraying issue.
If your kitty is spraying or marking up usually he or she will back up to an item, and while standing with tail erect will spray their chosen item. The amount of urine won't be a lot.
If it is a toileting issue they will squat as they do in the tray, fur instance: if they do it on a hard surface mew will find a puddle.
Spraying is usually a territorial thing, whereas toileting is more of a behavioural thing.

So below is the Smooch Widdle Diary started aftur the Expert's furst visit on the 22nd of November.
The P.A. has a calendar stuck on the fridge and we have been filling it in as and when an incident occurs, and mew can see how varied it is. There were many other places around the house too but we weren't keeping a diary then, and the P.A. has just ended up getting rid of stuff that has been ruined and at the moment Smoochie's widdling has cost in excess of £4,500.00, yep it's up there but there was a Sony laptop and the leather sofa out of the office, they were the big-ticket items.
FYI: Insurance doesn't cover accidental cat pee incidents either.
Tiger is a cat who lives somewhere in the village and has been going next door to the P.A.'s cousins for the last 18 months or so. We have no idea where he lives, but he does come offur the fence, into the courtyard and sleep under the carport in the teddy bear's picnic area. Smoochie really doesn't like this cat at all and this is one of his biggest triggers.
The next trigger is, if anything new is brought into the house that 'smells' different.
Fur example, Smooch has widdled on a couple of the heavy jute rugs, which are really hard to clean properly, so the P.A. bought new rugs and within one day of the new rugs being down he'd widdled on them too. So now the only rugs the P.A. uses are smaller washable cotton ones, which until the Saturday just gone, he'd shown no interest in at all. But at least she can just throw those type in the washing machine and it's no big purroblem to deal with.
The third trigger is, loud external noises, ie; like last week when we had the drive done, the mini digger clanking about set him back a little.
And before we wrap this post up we feel it most importante that mew see what a little sweetie Smoochie is and even though he's only got 3 legs he loves to play....
So in this post, mew need to get prepared, get your diary and effurything else implemented and start monitoring kitty and try to find the triggers that may be causing the behaviour.
In Part Two we'll show mew what we implemented to assist Smoochie in his recovery, and more about his purrsonality.
How many litter trays you should have, and talk about the cleanup process and what is the best product to clean cat urine with, as well as his actual progress since new measures were introduced.
And like we said earlier if mew have any questions, we'll help if we can!
