Default Cats urinating at front door

Hello!

We are in desperate need for help. We have 2 cats, brother and sister just over a year old. A few months ago we noticed one of them had urinated at the front door, then it started happening every other week, now its happening on a daily basis and we have no idea why. We are unsure which cat is doing it. They are also urinating under the tv stand.

-We clean their litter regularly
-We change their complete litter once a week
-We have bought a 2nd litter tray
-We've used the same litter since they were kittens
-We have cleaned the areas with Natures Miracle, bleach, oxyclean and vinegar in hopes they wouldnt do it in the same place

We have tried everything we can possibly think of, they are indoor cats and are both spaded and neutered. We are running out of patience!! Any more ideas?

Hello and welcome to the forum!

Usually inappropriate urination indicates illness. They blame the litter box for the pain so avoid using it. If you can't narrow down which cat is doing it, both should be checked out by the vet.

One way to find out would be to keep one cat isolated in a room for a day or two, and see if the peeing happens. If nothing happens, then isolate the other cat.

Another cause, once illness has been ruled out is; there may be a strange cat hanging around outside that has got one or both of your cats feeling territorial.

Some feliway plug in diffusers could help with that. Retraining may be necessary.

I assume they are both spayed and neutered as well? Could be marking or UTI.

I'm thinking (as already pointed out) either illness or territory marking. Have you noticed any stray cats outside your home?
