Bellagio (closest) and Roxanne

In Feb, we got another 1 year old kitten - since then my 10 years old female spayed simease mix Bellagio(whom used to have an older brother, got along well) has been acting strange. Peeing (smells) a lot, even the bed, then peeing on the same sheet when it is on the floor (on bed 3 times in 2 weeks). She lost weight, always needs attention/meowing, started being aggresive to the new cat Roxanne....somtimes they sleep together, some times they just hang out, a lot of times they bicker, Roxanne likes to play. Bellagio has also been taking on some kitten like traits and started playing a little bit some times.... is she just marking her territory? Or is this a serious problem like a UTI or even 2 seperate issues? Help is appreciated.

Umm well if the urine smell strong i would say that it is likely to be a UTI

I do also think there could be some territory issues as this is often the case when new cat turns up but I really do think you need to have the UTI checked out first. Her behavior does suggest that she is a little distressed and this could be because she is not feeling herself.

Once you know whether or not she has an infection or not you can then take the appropriate action regarding the problem, ie treat with antibiotics or if it is only behavioral to give her some litter training
