Why is my cat peeing on my mattress? And My Suggestions To Keep away from It.


I show you here all the solutions to prevent your cat from defecating where you sleep.

Because it must be said that it is really unpleasant to discover cat pee on the bed or the sofa …

It is often a sign of stress or discomfort that will have to be identified.

My vet, I have listed the 11 tips to help you understand why your cat is acting like this.

And how to avoid this behavior in cats.

Stress, illness, behavioral problems …

… Discover why your cat pees on your bed and my tips to avoid it. Look :


1. His litter does not suit him

The cat is a very clean animal, very delicate and a maniacal hair.

He has his preferences in matters of small corner, and they will have to be respected!

Clean litter

First, be sure to provide it with a clean litter box. Remove poop at least once a day.

Change the entire litter box weekly. Take the opportunity to clean the bin completely with this trick.

A mineral or vegetable litter

Each cat has their preferences. Some like pebbles, others like wood chips or vegetable litter, still others like clumping litter.

Respect what he likes.

My cat hated vegetable litter. The time I was wrong in buying it, I can tell you that it made it clear to me!

A well-placed litter

The litter box should be well separated from where the cat eats, and where he sleeps.

It should be in a quiet place away from unpleasant looks. Well yes … he is not going to pee in front of everyone anyway!

Easy-to-access litter

To be able to defecate, your cat must have quick access to its litter box. The easier he gets there, the less likely he is to go elsewhere.

Watch out for old cats who are not as agile as they used to be: offer them a litter box with low edges. A larger bin will also be welcome.

2. Your cat has lost his habits

Cats have their little habits and live at their own pace.

Change their habits, and they will be disturbed for a few days.

And to make you understand (or pay for) it, cats can start doing things they are not used to doing.

Like urinating on your bed!

They will also take control of places where they do not normally go for reassurance.

3. Your cat is stressed

Stress is absolutely to be avoided for cats, especially the most sensitive.

Why ? Because stress can cause unusual behavior.

A move, work, a new animal or child, guests … nothing can disturb them.

It is often an opportunity for them to mark their territory more strongly, especially in males.

And what are they doing? Pee everywhere! Especially on the beds.

In case of planned changes such as work, plan a quiet place that does not change for your cat.

Then, open the rooms to him one by one so that he can discover them at his own pace.

If you have noisy guests for several days, allow your cat to hide in a place that is calm and reassuring for him.

Be attentive to the discomfort of your feline. And if you don’t understand, don’t hesitate to call in a behaviorist.

4. Your cat is bored

Even if he is lonely, a cat is not made to live alone, in a small apartment.

If you leave him alone for 8-10 hours a day, he may be very bored.

So, he will tend to occupy himself as best he can … but that may not suit you!

Give him something to take care of : cat toys, exterior access, street view …

5. Your cat was poorly educated

Hey yes, there are also small rebels!

He may not know what to do if it’s a kitten that has never known house life.

Or, he just picked up bad habits.

First, clean the pee area with white vinegar.

You have to remove the smell of ammonia.

Above all, do not use bleach: it attracts cats even more!

If necessary, get help to teach him how to go to his cash register.

Arguing or punishing a cat who has peed in his master’s bed is useless, on the contrary!

6. Your cat is sick

A cat that has never been messy and starts to pee out of its crate should alert you.

It is often one of the first signs of illness and discomfort.

Especially if your cat is a bit old.

Kidney failure, incontinence, digestion problem …

The first thing to do is to consult the vet for a good check-up!


7. Create a calm and healthy environment

When you have determined the cause of the problem, arrange or rearrange your cat’s living conditions.

Larger litter, different place, away from the bowl, away from children or other animals …

Cut down on anything that can stress him out.

I warn you: change does not happen in 1 day.

It will be done little by little. And above all, remember to congratulate him when he returns to his crate.

On the other hand, a physical or vocal reprimand is useless.

At worst, make it clear to him that you’re not happy and take him to his checkout.

8. Try the pheromones

Reduce Cat Stress Easily Kitten

A cat’s stress or insecurity can be reduced with a simple pheromone spray.

These are synthetic pheromones which give the cat a feeling of well-being and security.

Spray this product in places where your cat spends time, but also near his crate

Don’t worry, it doesn’t smell bad. I would even say that for us, it is odorless.

Pheromones are also available as a diffuser. The most famous are Féliway broadcasters.

9. Try Bach flowers

We can give a few drops to a stressed or aggressive cat for example.

Bach flowers are also available in spray.

But always ask your vet what the correct dose is before using it!

10. Protect your bed

Before making 1 return trip a day to the laundromat to clean your duvet, remember to protect your bed.

First of all, close the door to restrict access to the room.

Is your bed in the living room and you don’t have a separating door?

No problem: cover the bed witha waterproof mattress protector.

Do not hesitate to put a noisy plastic.

Why ? Because cats hate to defecate in a place that is not quiet.

Another solution: move the cat’s bowls closer to your bed.

Since he hates eating and peeing in the same place, chances are he will leave your bed.

All these solutions did not give the expected results?

Your regular veterinarian can also help you during a consultation.

A behaviorist or a cat psychologist are also of great help.

Especially if your cat is proving difficult to manage.
