Lord Simberton keeps urinating inside
(sydney NSW australia)
Our lovely Persian cat is around 10 years old (human) and has just started urinating in various spots around the house.
We catch him sometimes and put him straight out dripping with urine. We often yell at him and he knows he has done wrong as now he bolts for the door right after urination.
God bless him we love him to death but the paper towels and cleaning is killing us.
He is an indoor outdoor cat and we no longer use a litter box.
There are 2 other cats in the house which we have had for 3 years. He gets on with them no problems.
He has had a urinary infection before but it was to do with the diet. We no longer let him have cat biscuits.
He gives us no warning and is now just taking the piss.
What can we do to fix our beloved cat as we love him dearly but the constant cleaning is getting past the joke.
many thanks in advance.

cats do not carry out this sort of behavior because of spite or bad behavior there is always a reason for it. Unfortunately there can be many reasons from a urinary infection (which is more common in male cats) or it is behavioral due to anxiousness caused by something.
I have a web page which goes through some of the possible causes and also describes a method you can try which if it is caused by behavior should help.
Here is the page
However due to the fact that he has had a urinary infection before I would be tempted to take him to the vets for a check up just in case this is the cause again.
I hope he is better soon
best wishes Kate
