So, I have two dogs (a shih tzu and a westie) and until two months ago, three cats. One of our kitties went to live at my MIL's three blocks away. She was down to one lonely cat and we figured Pino would be the perfect mate for the lonely kitty she had. Fast forward to now. We're left with a male two year old cat and a female (and very undersized) one year old cat. They always got along before and snuggled. The cat that now lives at MIL's was the loner that was left out (which is why we figured it wouldn't upset the balance). So in the past two weeks the male cat has been beating up on the female (to the point where I'm afraid for her safety. I've honestly never heard a cat squeal so loudly. It gets our westie riled up because she's always been very protective of 'little kitty'.) and has in the past week taken to peeing other places that the litter box. It's usually in the same spot or two, but it's pretty embarassing because we have company pretty often. His litter box is cleaned daily by my DH, so that's not it. Unless maybe he wants his own? I'm starting to wonder if he shouldn't be confined to one space with the litter box to 'retrain' him. Little kitty has taken to hiding underneath to sofa to take her naps because she's too scared to be seen by the other cat. I just can't deal with this stress right now (and my doctor would NOT like to see my BP). It's been two months since the other cat moved out, and he just fought with the remaining male cat when they saw each other as it was. UGH. Also, are there any good products for thoroughly cleaning the cat pee spots so he's not tempted to mess there again, just based on the smell?
