Male or female, 240? It might be a sign of dominance on the cats part??

first of all....

Get rid of the pillow.  You cannot clean the pillow enough, no matter what enzymes, so the cat can't smell it.  Write it up as a lost....& get a new one.

Secondly...does the cat have rules?  If you do not want the cat on the bed....don't let it.  Whatever you do with a cat...you do not physically scold it.  This can send the cat off in a 'pissing match' if you know what I mean.  If I don't want a cat in a certain area...I block it off.  If the cat gets close to the area...I just say "no" or 'get'.  This usually makes the cat more curious about the area but if done properly & with a lot of persistence...the cat will give it up.

Third...the cat is 'marking'.  She's trying to claim it 'her' territory.  Keep the room closed when you're not around.  When you get a chance...lay on the bed with the door open & see if the cat tries to come in.  This is where you can set the drill of claiming your room/bed back.  Just keep shooing her out. 

To be honest...this can sometimes take a long time to break.

If vet was here...he would say 'make sure you take it to the vet & run tests"....which to me can be more $$$ than resulting in any solution.  Granted, cats sometimes go through imbalances & tests at the vet might bring them out.  In this case....I would bet on the territory issue first.  The cat is young & trying to establish her territory.

We have a cat that for awhile would pee on the side of the litter box, not in it, but on the outside of it, took him to the vet, got some pills.........that didn't work, got a new littler box, boom problem solved. Strange kitties.......

Nope....mine did the same thing. 

I've had a lot of cats over the years & this one I have now is surely different.

She did not like the inside of the cat box dirty.  Now if that makes sense.

If I clean it out once in the morning & once in the evening...she's 110% happy.  I had her going strong in this routine for 6 months...no incidents.  I forgot 1 stupid day....& she let me know by peeing outside of it.  Prior to that....it didn't matter how many times I cleaned it....she did not like it, so I went out & got a new one.  Presto...she was fine with that.

Cats are funny.  I've had cats that would sit outside their box & meow until you cleaned it.  They wouldn't go elsewhere & had to go in the box...but didn't want to go in until it was cleaned out.  Most of the cats in the past were ok with every 3-4 days with a cleaning (1 cat per cat box).  If there were two cats....it was every other day.  I've seen some go longer...but mine is so picky it has to be done daily or else.

thanks guys.  I keep replacing the pillow, and it's hard to find smashed pillows like I prefer them Sad

Also I shampoo 4-5 times per week.  The rule is that the cat doesn't go in the bedroom.  We keep the kid outta there unattended too.  Wifey leaves it open.

Rob, do you have more than one cat?  (In my past experience having cats) Like knny said it helps if each cat has it's own litter box.

My mom had a male cat that started urinating in places other than the litter box but he was sick.  If I remember right he had "crystals" or something in his urine and needed help from the vet.  I can't remember the details exactly but as I said, it was a male cat.

Which is true & can happen with alot of cats when they get older.

Sorry, but the cat has to go. Any respectful Southerner, even black would pick up on this one.


11PM, a shovel, a .22 and a portable kennel is all you need.

Once the cats figured out how to use the doggy door, they don't even use the box anymore.

yeah i have two cats.  this cat is pissed at me.  In my old house, I let her sit on my lap all day as I worked on the laptop.  In the new house, much nicer office, I have a gate up (for baby) and nobody is allowed in.

I don't think she likes me anymore.

LOL forget about the gun, hit it over the head a few times.

this reminds me of a story my Serb soccer coach had, when he was in Yugoslavia.
He had to get rid of the dog, so he took the dog out a few KMs' from the house hit it a few times over the head with the shovel and buried it. An hour later the dog made it's way back LOL

I'm sure most people who beat animals over the head (and then joke about it) are 'good people'...

Female cats are terrible, male cats if neutered are the best.  Anyway, throw the pillow out if that doesn't work get that special spray that will keep the cat off your bed, or better yet just shut your door.
