Cat urination problem

by Louise Williams

why is my 18 month old female cat peeing by the front door its become every day now it used to be just when she was on heat and she just started pooing in the bath when she been litter trained since she was tiny

It sounds to me like she may be smelling or sensing other cats outside and is scent marking her territory to warn off other cats. the fact that she is doing it around the front door would suggest that perhaps another cat has scented outside the door.

cats also use their feces as scent markers too but normally when they are really feeling threatened it is called Middening, more on this behavior here

Try washing around the door inside and out to remove any scents. Also spray around some strong smelling citrus spray around the door to keep other cats away.

Of course having your cat spayed would reduce her territorial urges and so this sort of behavior would diminish too.
