Sorry CC for taking so long to reply. I have not looked at this thread in ages.

Kitty is still whizzing and pooping with a vengeance! He has destroyed our carpet in the dining room and is starting on the living room now. It reeks in our dining room. But the problem is that my wife loves the cat so much, that we are putting up with the smell. There is a time limit though: our son graduates in 2007 and we are having a party for him. So by then, we will have to replace the flooring in the two rooms and of course there cannot be a kitty around, hopefully. I don't want to sound cruel, but we are so sick of smelling the urine and feces he drops all around. We should just toughen up and relief him of his (and our) misery.

One other thing, we have another cat. He is a male, about two years old. He uses the box, even though the "old man" does not.

Oh, man. That's such a sad story, jp. Well -- the consolation, and I imagine others have said the same thing, is that your wife will be very tolerant and forbearing if and when you get to be in the same condition yourself some day. tongue.gif

I have to admire people who see their animal friends out all the way with affection and dignity.

A kind of funny thing happened this weekend. The old kitty tends to "go" wherever he happens to be standing. This instance he was positioned right by the new kitty's food bowl. You guessed it - he whizzed in new kitty's bowl!
I don't think it was personal though!!! unsure.gif

hmmmmmmm..........on top of Kitty depends, I would also suggest replacing your carpet with tile floors! Much easier to clean up and less smell. Just a thought. wink.gif

One time I had two cats who went everywhere but their litter boxes, just to be spiteful, so I understand your frustration! That's why I now have dogs! LOL tongue.gif laugh.gif

This problem has gotten to the point my wife is seriously leaning toward having the cat put down. She has been the one that wants to keep kitty around. He has gotten to the point where he will eat/drink, then step over to the carpet and whiz, a foot or so from his bowl.
I am thinking that kitty may be gone in a few weeks.

Oh wow, JP! I don't know anything about cat behavior at all, but if it were my dogs, they would be getting a severe thrashing from me! Not beating, but they would hear me hollering from the next block! I honestly don't know what to tell you to do, but I am sure you all are extremely frustrated!

Rose - typically yelling at swatting a cat does no good.
The issue is that the cat is sick. We should just end his (and our) misery. He usually acts OK. It's just that he ats and drinks constantly and pees/poops wherever he happens to be standing when the urges comes.

I am so sorry, JP. I was trying to be funny but instead I was very stupid! I am so very very sorry about your kitty. I hate the thought of putting any animal down. I wish you all the best...sincerely.

I had a cat who began having problems with his urination and bowels. A friend of ours is a vet and determined it was kidney failure. We ended up having to put him to slee., (he was 17 yrs old).
Good luck with your kitty, I hope it is nothing serious.

Ah, the poor little old feller. sad.gif

You've been incredibly good with him. Wish you the best outcome, Padraig, and whatever it takes to get through it.

I've been reading the thread for a while now...and I think it's time to let go as well...best to let him go with some dignity since there does not appear to be any improvement. It's never an easy decision but it's going to be what's best for all. Best Wishes Padraig....

JP, I have to agree with Senara. I know it will be difficult but it sounds like it is time to let the little fella go. Hugs to you and your family as I know how so difficult this is.
