Need Help

I have a cat who is 8 years old. All of a sudden she is peeing all over the couch and bathtub, floor you name it. She has NEVER used it anywhere but in her litter box. Some changes lately in our life has been moved (almost 4 months ago but she just started peeing on the couch about a few weeks or so ago), I recently changed her litter(but shes used that kind before and never did this), she seen a cat outside the window, and I changed her food. I dont know what to do I dont want to give her up shes been with me for so long. Shes also been meowing really loud at the door and has been trying to go outside and shes an inside cat who used to dislike the outdoors alot. She is fixed and has been for as long as I have had her. When I got her when she was a kitten she had a prolapsed rectum and had to have surgery for it. But up until now no problems with urinating.

Any time there is a substantial change in a pet's behavior, a trip to the vet is in order to rule out any medical problem. This certainly seems to be one of those times.

Two things that come to mind right away is a urinary tract infection or diabetes (had that happen to a cat I had once). In any case, get her to a vet right away to confirm or rule out a medical reason for the behavior change.

I have to agree, with the others here, get her to the vet ASAP.It sounds like she may have a blockage in her urethera. This is considered an emergency situation, so please do not delay.

Stones can form there and cause the peeing all over, as well as the crying and not acting properly. The vet can check to see if this is the problem and there are treatments for the condition.

Please keep us posted.
