How To Stop Cat Behavior Problems With Other Cats In Home

Cat behavior problems in the home are often the result of having multiple cats living under the same roof. In this article, I will talk about some solutions to having all your cats living together harmoniously under the same roof.

If you have multiple cats in your home, you need to address the number of litter boxes you currently have. A lot of people think one litter box will suffice.

This simply isn’t the case.

The best route is to have each cat have it’s own litter box and add one extra to be on the safe side.

I know that might seem like a lot, especially if you have more than a couple of cats but it is an absolute necessity. Cats are extraordinarily clean creatures and having to share a litter box with other cats in your home is not going to make them happy.

Your cat will likely abandon the litter box as a protest and end up peeing on your bed or carpet. Then the issue gets even worse because the other cats will be attracted to the smell of pee and go in the same spot.

If you have enough litter boxes for your cats, you can prevent this problem from happening in the first place.

The second issue that is important to be aware of is stress. Even though cats are generally solitary in nature, they still crave our attention. As any cat owner will tell you however, your cat will be the one to decide when and where he gets this affection.

In a multi-cat household, your cat is likely to feel jealous and anxious having to compete for your attention with the other cats. You need to make sure you have a time set aside every day for each cat to avoid any of them feeling left out.

My wife and I had a serious problem with one of our cats a few months ago when one of them decided that the corner of our living room was a better place to pee than his litter box. It cost us thousands of dollars in repairs to both our floor AND the ceiling of our neighbor below us.

We did a lot of reading about solutions to our cat peeing everywhere on the Internet and weren’t entirely satisfied with what we found.

We decided to put together the best information we could find and also talked to many veterinarians around the world and asked for their advice on how to make it stop.

We have all of the results of our research now at along with many articles on how to stop your cat peeing everywhere before it’s too late.
