Ok i know i have posted a couple of things about my two year old bengal kittythat I just got. But is it normal for some of the kittys to use the bathroom on the bed? the litter box is right outside of my bedroom door and she has used it. The bedroom door was open all night! Is this something that bengals do? The stool was normal size and was firm but not hard. Why is she doing this and will it stop? Thank god hubby did not wake up he would have freaked!!!!!!!!! I put the poop in the box put the blanket in the wash and went back to bed. I hope this does not continue I dont think I could wake up in poop every morning! Help suggestions causes cures anything! :shock:

One of my bengals pees on my bed when he's feeling insecure (once when I'd been away for a week with work, once when we had a new housemate move in). Maybe she's still settling in? I would try to supervise her when she's in your bedroom if possible.

Chaos once peed on the bed (that with other things, it finally caused a ban on the bedroom, they can't get in now...) but never pooed, sorry... ;)

Miss Domino peed a couple of times on different beds when we were in the room with her. I took it as her protesting that she was not in the limelight.

She's well aware where the litter tray is and it's not happened since. As a previous poster said, I think she wees because she was not quite settled in.

Funny story. When my first bengal was a kitty(rip) he didn't like it when I left him during the day to go to school. One time I couldn't play with him for two days due to it being exam week. Anyway, I woke up in the morning to get ready and got a shower. Every day I would sit down on my bed in the same spot to put on my socks etc. To my surprise when I sat down, I sat in a big pile of cat poo. I swear he did it to get revenge.

Suki seems to have developed a habit of weeing upstairs and I wonder if there is anything I can do about it - so far she has used the laundry basket (nice), a rug and my bed about three times - very annoying! There is no reason for her to do this as she always uses in the litter tray when I've seen her. Is there anything I can do to stop or discourage this?? :oops:

Hi Stella

Sorry - I said Tilly in my other message, I obviously don't read carefully :oops: !!

For the first few months after bringing Meisha home she sometimes used her litter tray & other times would wee & poo on the sofa. I tried discouraging her away from the sofa (you can do lots of things - I put tin foil over the sofa cushions while we weren't at home, you can spray weak lemon juice [cats don't like the smell], I think there are even some specific sprays in pet shops that are for discouraging cats away). I was advised to try to see whether anything caused Meisha to do this - but as we work full-time I never caught her in the act so don't know! In the end I changed the amount of litter in her tray, kept it fastidiously clean and tried a different type of litter & finally I managed to find the perfect combination as she uses it consistently now.

As Suki is only weeing upstairs I wonder if it's not as simple as just 'litter tray rejection' .... it may be she has a urinary infection & so I would go & see your vet to rule that out. Or she may be feeling anxious for some reason - have you ever tried Feliway? I've got the diffuser which has calmed Meisha down which may have helped with her litter tray issues. Is there anyway you could stop her coming into your bedroom for the time being until she gets into the habit of using her tray each time?

Hope something in my rambling has been helpful! Sas

Well I have never caught Suki in the act either - I think they must know they are doing wrong! Usually I keep our bedroom door closed all day, but on the occasions where it has been left open she has done it. I might try the lemon juice or get some air freshner that smells like lemon. I think its not an uncommon problem though! Thanks x

That is usually true, however, they can still stand up and vertically spray wee, which one of mine has done on one occasion. :roll: I always put down a bowl of food on any problem areas though as it does at least discourage them.

I used to have two cats that did their business behind the TV, it took me months to sort the problem...lots of washing powder, tin foil, behaviour spray, orange peel, vinegar.. :shock: :lol:
