    Try lavender oil instead of eucalyptus.

    Still won't dissolve the uric acid salts responsible for triggering your pet to reoffend.

    The point is not cleaning it to smell pretty to humans. You need to clean it to not smell at all to animals.

    I more meant because most (but not all!) cats hate the smell of lavender, we sprayed our cat's bed with lavender once because reasons and then she wouldn't sleep there anymore.

    The same cat has taken to shitting behind a door on the carpet when we forget to put her outside, i'd try lavender there but who knows where she would shit next.

    Cover the drain for a few weeks with a standard sink plug, and black pepper sprinkled around it for that time (is a deterent makes them sneze). Mine used to do the exact same thing at the same age. I also used the rub there face in it like a dog training method when i caught her in the act... Cat doesnt piss inside anymore.

    Our cats used to do this, until we started locking them in the laundry (where the kitty litter is) during their dinner and when we go to bed. I guess it forced them to go to the toilet at certain times? I don't know exactly what happened, but they don't piss on the front door any more.

    If you only have one litter box, have you tried placing a second one elsewhere for her to perhaps make use of? The current one may be too "full" so she decides to go outside. Another thing to try is if your litter box has a lid, try taking it off, it may allow your cat to position themselves over different areas of the box as needed. For example, my cats will sniff different areas of their box and make use of all sides and corners and stand up facing outwards or sit down as needed - they wouldn't be able to go as comfortably within an enclosed box.

    Also, I know it may seem like common sense to place litter boxes in the laundry, bathroom, or other out of the way place, etc, but you may have more success placing the trays around common areas where the cat likes to hang out. We put our 3 boxes (2 cat household) on bath matts to help catch most of the litter that falls out of the tray so litter tracking isn't as much of a problem.

    Otherwise, I would try covering up the drain on the off chance it may have an odour that is encouraging her to want to go there, but my gut feel is that the problem centres around your litter box situation.

    I had to move the litter box to the lounge room with no lid at first, The flap used to scare her so i removed that for a bit also.

    I don't know if they're fussy, but we tried to make it as painless as possible for them to do their business so that everyone is happy :lol:

    Put another tray next to the drain hole. She's completely ignored it but now she's pissing in the normal tray, no puddles in over a day now...

    Idk if it works with cats but I know it works with dogs urinating on furniture is maybe try spray a bit of white vinegar in the area where your cat keeps urinating on.

    Yeah well i was gonna say that i give it a few smacks and it works but you never know some people are a bit over the top when it comes to telling them you discipline your cat or dog. But there the proven methods that work try telling some rspca person that lol. IMO its the same as a kid and some people well they dont smack there kids and look at them. Nothing worse then an untrained animal.

    No, we don't. OP's cat is back weeing in his main tray. It's all good. These are not the droids you are looking for, move on.

    A loud "NO!" and handclap achieves exactly the same 'disciplinary' scare and deterrent, but without the ugly violence.
