Hi,
Just recently came across this message board and it is wonderful

I have 3 cats and 1 dog. The cats are all males and the dog is female. They've been living with one another now for 5 years. They all get along great ... sometimes it is like dealing with children when they have their personality differences with one another / LOL. Love them so much

BUT ... yes there is that *but* ... one of the cats in the last 2 years goes pee on the dog's bed. This is not all the time thank goodness, and the bedding is easy to clean up too *wipes brow*.

Always seems to be 2xs a year at the most this happens. Not sure which one it is either, but have an idea it is my grey sabel tabby that is doing this behavior.

We are in a house, we have lots of space and they all have their own territory laid out, so I know that is not the issue with this pee on the dog's bed.

The one cat is obviously upset about something when he does this to her bed. / LOL

Don't get me wrong, I am grateful it is only 2xs a year at the most this occurs, but I am concerned that one of these years it is going to be a norm behavior Any suggestions?

I know it's not stress levels ... nothing out of the norm has happened in the home. It is just me and my husband living in the house ... no children.

Animals are a blessing not to be take for granted.

I think it maybe a jealousy problem.

I am trying something this night. After washing the dog's bed out thoroughly, I put a blanket in the laundry basket and put the grey cat in it. Right away he laid down and started to purr / LOL / very content.

The grey cat usually loves to lay on a blanket near the laundry basket or in the laundry basket. Today I washed up the blankets that he was laying on -- then this evening found the pee on the dog's blanket.

I'll see if this is why he got upset.
1 Dog + 1 Blanket
1 Cat - 1 blanket
= 1 upset Cat about Dog having its own blanket and 0 for Cat.

LOL

If this is what it is, then I think it is time to make all the Cat's their own individual beds as well ... instead of them lounging wherever which I thought they were content with ... obviously could be wrong

Hello. Welcome to the site. I think you may be right. If your cat doesn't have a UTI then it's most likely behavioral. Keep us posted on your 'science project.'

The grey cat has a sensitive UT and I am very careful and constantly watching him regarding that issue.

Since I made the bed for him in the laundry basket / LOL / he has been there ever since, lounging contently well peeking up to see who comes into the room the odd time / LOLM.

I am sure it is a jealousy behavior happening with him. I'll keep track of this for the next while to see if another pee on the dog's bed occurs.

Mean while this week, I'll make all the cats their own individual beds to help eliminate any bed jealousy behaviors. The cats can then claim their own beds which one they want

I'll keep you posted
