For those more recent folks who may stumble on this topic with a forum search .....

We have a local gal that has some great info on her site for behavioral issues.  She's really fixed a lot of behavior problems in our area.  Does a weekly column in the paper.  You might check her website out or even email her:

Poor JuneBug and family.  If I were in this situation, I believe I would put in several different boxes aroun the house with different fillers just to see if this made a difference in her urinary preference.  She might not life the litter you're using or the size of the box.  Maybe it's not being cleaned often enough for her presence.  If you have a screened porch, let her go outside and enjoy a box there.  When she decides she likes a particular box or fragrence,  you can start replacing a couple of the other boxes with her favorites.  Maybe this will help a little for you and JuneBug.  Godloveyou both.

Kitties with struvite crystals often have that problem throughout their lives....are you giving her plenty of wet food and perhaps consider adding some supplements such as Vitamin C and Cornsilk?  I am not a vet, so cannot diagnose or prescribe, but you may want to see if a change in her diet would help...sometimes, the first switch of food doesn't work.  Also, if you have changed cat litters, that can trigger a problem...oftentimes, if the pet can smell the urine, they will naturally want to go back to that spot...enzyme cleaners are what you need, but it often takes more than one application and in the case of carpet, if it soaks through the pad, you can't get to the source of the odor.

--- Quote ---I have looked at advice given to others and it doesn't seem to fit my cat.  I have two cats, both female and turning and 6 years old.  They have been together their whole life and think of themselves as sisters, although they are not related.  The one cat peed on the carpet when she was very young for a while.  It passed and we lived for years in urine-free peace.  Last year, she started to pee again.  We had her in our bathroom for nearly half a year.  The peeing in our living room and bedrooms seemed to have past for a little bit after taking her out of the bathroom.  We figured that it was a territorial thing, there had been a boy cat walking around that side of the house before.  For the past couple months she has been peeing in our living room continuosly.  We have tried various things such as Natures Miracle, Pet Zyme, and Oderzout.  The peeing has continued and the places multiplied.  We are now resorting to keeping her in the bathroom until we find out what is wrong.  My cat has had 2 surgeries, one for swallowing some kind of foam, and the other from swallowing some kind of string.  The second surgery was when they found out that she had crystals in her bladder.  She has been on the urinary healthy food.  She has seemed to be fine for a while and has been to the Vet previously and has found nothing wrong.  She is going to the vet after Christmas.  If her problems and solutions are not found out soon, we may have to give her away.   Please, if you have anything to say, post something.  For Junebug's sake.
