I have a year old Siamese cat and I got her fixed in Jan. of this year because she was peeing everywhere and going into heat too often. This seemed for sometime to stop the peeing, but it return shortly after. I have tried a 2nd. litter box and it help but doesn't cure anything. I have also tried the "No Scratch" product to keep her from going in the same spots but that doesn't work either. She is ruining the house, what can I do? I don't want to give her up!
Thanks for your time.

I too have siamese and am currently experiencing the same problem. Below is something I found on the net. Let me know if your situation has improved.

It's the middle of the night and you are thirsty. You get up, stumble for a drink, then suddenly... step into a big, soggy, wet spot on the carpet! YUK! When you get over being angry about your dog or cat peeing in the house, try giving some thought to WHY your pet did this. There are several probable causes. An animal's specie, sex, age, and even breed can suggest possible medical causes. In cats the most common causes are urinary tract infections," sand", and stones in the bladder. All to often, owners mistakenly assume their cat is simply misbehaving. Yes, some cats will eliminate in the house out of spite but most often this behavior is caused by a medical problem that needs medical attention. Unfortunately, many house cats with a treatable, medical urinary tract problem are made outdoor cats, given away, or worse, presented to a veterinarian for euthanasia. It is both unfair and unkind not to rule out a medical problem first. After your veterinarian has eliminated medical causes, ask about the possible use of anti-anxiety drugs to stop the inappropriate urination. Although there are no anti-anxiety drugs approved for use in animals, many formerly stressed, "peeing-out-of-the-litter-box" cats have been helped and re-instated into the good graces of their family with the use of some of these human-use approved drugs.
