      Sorry for chiming in a bit late to the discussion, but I really feel like I need to add my 2 cents.

      Cats don't just pee on floors and beds because they're in pain - could be a multitude of other reasons! Most common is that male cats feel the need to mark their territory.

      As for myself, I finally found something that works for the cat pee smell in my home! A herbal mixture of sorts! I now recommend it to everyone because it works so freakin' well and we save SOO much money!

      You should definitely check it out, we don't even buy Odorban and the likes any longer :)

      What a relief to finally have gotten rid of the horrible cat pee smell, and for a decent price as well.

      Registered an account only to say this:

      One of my 2 cats (both neutered males) had taken to painting all of my walls, furniture, and anything else he could reach. I was horrified when I got a UV light. He never did that in all of the 9 years I've had him and didn't when I got him a buddy (they love each other and did so right away) but when a strange black cat started showing up outside both of my cats went nuts and the older one (9) started his wall painting, as well as the curtains out in the kitty room. I couldn't keep up with it.

      My cats are indoor cats so it's not like the stray is actually going to get in here but they both hate him (and he is neighbor's cats hate him too). I've tried cleaning with a pet urine enzyme and then spraying some "No More Spraying" but that hasn't worked.

      He's a sneaky little bugger too; he waits until he thinks I'm not looking and then does it. He's learned that the minute I see him backing his butt up to something he gets yelled at. It wasn't until I found "Cat Spraying No More" that I was able to finally get rid of this tiresome behavior. Now my house doesn't smell like a litter box anymore :)

      To be honest, I don't know too much more about it so I did a quick Google search and here's a description of the spray with a long review as well.

      No I have not been paid for this post nor do I make any commissions off of it. I really just want to help you guys out. I hope you don't mind.

      I'm based in Sweden, by the way, so you should be able to get it too.

      Good luck with the odor! It really lowers your quality of life, doesn't it?

    My husband and I laugh and say we have the cleanest litter box in town because our cat comes and tells us after he goes to the bathroom. He won't stop pestering us until we make it sparkly clean again. We go through this about four times a day! (even when he only pees!) So keep your litter boxes clean. I also get a new plastic litter pan about three times a year.

    I had the same issue with my female cat. A clean box wasn't always her favorite spot. She would use my bathtub or closet floor. I talked to a vet thinking she had health issues but was told it's a behavior issue. She didn't like me bringing another cat in the house and when I changed job my hours changed also. But with more attention and few nose rubbings in her new spots the problem stopped. Just some ideas how I handled it. Hope it helps..

    My cat started doing this. She kept doing it (with a clean cat box) and I have hard wood floors in all of my house so I could see it right away.
    After a while she started doing it a little bit more often like while she was eating and as she is walking even.

    After 2-3 weeks when I was cleaning up her latest I noticed it had a pale red color to it. I took her to the vet and he said she had bladder infection (maybe it was the kidney not sure). Anyway it went away with a shot and daily meds for a week.

    It came back within a month and I did the vet thing again.

    It came back again when the meds were done. So back we went.
    The vet told me she probably would keep getting it back unless I changed her science diet to the C/D prescription science diet.

    I didn't right away because the big bag was close to 60.00. But when she got the infection again right after the meds were done I decided I should give it a try.

    She never has gotten it again and that was 9 years ago and she is still eating the C/D science diet food. The big bag is 17 lbs so it lasted her 9-10 months. She didn't need to eat as much to be full.
    I always keep food in her bowl but she is only a five lb cat.

    So what I am saying is maybe she is sick?

    Most often cats have or are developing uric acid crystals in their bladder and its painful for them to urinate. They will look for soft things to pee on like carpet, towel, blankets, bedding etc. They need to see vet and the have a diet change. Since cats are carnivores, I decided to not feed my cats dried food which makes them fat anyway. I will give my cat a tablespoon of dried Science Diet, Urinary Tract formula. I don't feed her too much wet seafood either. Mostly chicken, turkey, liver.
