• What can I do to stop my cat from peeing and pooping on my sofas? Please help me

    Hi Deysi,
    I recommend that you take your cat into see a veterinarian. Going outside the litterbox can be a behavioral issue but often there is an underlying medical cause as well. These causes can include urinary tract infections, arthritis, bladder stones, or even more severe underlying concerns like kidney disease or diabetes. Your vet can talk to you more about the potential cause in your cat after they have examined him. They may recommend some lab tests to help diagnose or rule out certain diseases. The treatment that is needed will depend on the underlying cause of the issue. If there is a behavioral component to this, your vet can work with you on a behavior modification plan that is specific to your cat.
