Cats/tabbi behavior


I have had my brother and sister cats for 4 years now.  I am suddenly noticing that one of them if not both (not sure yet) is urinating on my clean laundry.  There is no disease present in either of them.  Would a cat that urinates in laundry lay in it afterwards with the urine?  My female will and I am not sure if that could help tell which is doing it.  The urine in the box also seems to be getting stronger when I clean it out.

there are several reasons why this may happen. Either it is behavioural please see my web page here for more on this here


or it is an urine infection, this could be why the urine smell so strong. Again I have a fuller explanation of this on my website here


It is not usual for a cat to lay in their own urine as they are generally very clean animals. this may suggest ill health rather than a behaviour issue.

I hope my pages can help you with your problem.

best wishes Kate
