Augh! My cat is an almost full grown male cat. But, he pees everywhere! Does he need neutured, or does he just want attention? He's an inside-outside cat, but when he comes inside, he pees! He doesn't have a litter box, because my mom won't allow it. It's annoying, and my mom's threatening to send him away. I love him more than anything. What do I do? Please help!

If your mother won't allow a litterbox where is he supposed to go when he is inside? Maybe you can some how train him to let you know when he has to go to the bathroom so you can let him outside to go?
Neutering is a good idea and can help prevent or at least decrease marking/spraying behaviors if this is a problem with him.

I wonder if what you are observing is spraying and not peeing...and yes you should have him neutered. You'll extend him life - too bad your mom won't allow a litterbox (also extend his life by keeping him inside too) maybe if you offer to keep it scooped and clean she'll change her mind. I have 3 cats, 2 litterboxes - I scoop a couple of times a day and clean/refill weekly and there is no smell from them at all.

Thanks for the notes. I'll ask my mother about a litter box, but I doubt she'll agree. Besides, I'd be too lazy to change it, anyways. Maybe I -can- train him to alert us when he needs to go outside. Thanks again!

With 1 cat it really isn't much work to keep the litter box fresh. Probably 5 min a day, then 10-15 min once a week or every two weeks to change out the litter.

But the smell. Doesn't it get into the rugs, even if you keep it clean?

I'm not sure what you mean by the smell getting into the rug...if you have a litterbox set up the cat shouldn't be going on the rug. I have my litterboxes in our bathrooms (a full bath and a 1/2 bath). Or...if yopu would have to set the litterbox on carpeting you could get a piece of leftover linoleum flooring from like Home Depot and set the box on that. I have a friend who does that as her cat's litterbox sits on carpeting...

I mean, doesn't just the typical smell of old, nasty litter get into the rugs? You know how that kinda stuff picks up smells, like smoke, animals, that kinda stuff. I just don't think my mom'd agree to it. Anyways, Rocket hasn't peed in the house since the day before yesterday, so I'm crossing my fingers, but not holding my breath. :P

I have 18 cats that are all indoors and the only time its smells like animals in here is when one of them has just peed outside the box (which doesn't happen often). People always expect my house to stink and are surprised that it doesn't. The only time it would stink is if you didn't keep the box clean. The box would stink a lot less than him peeing on the carpet.
