^^ This. Definately take the cat to the vet.

Why people resort to "getting rid" of their pet when something like this happens is really frustrating. Your pet is meant to be part of the family. Just remember when your mother / father start p!ssing themselves when they get older, have them carted off to a "new" family. Old people's homes would love to take them on. Even if they can't use the toilet.

Either UTI or attention seeking behaviour. You say you have "too many" cats, perhaps it feels undervalued and is trying to get attention. One of our cats gets moody when my mother is away, so when she comes back the cat pees on her bed.

I once found two kittens in a stack of wood outside my house. Obviously their mother had abandoned them and I, a person who never wanted to have a cat set foot (or paw) in his house, took them in, bought them food two litterboxes, a scratching post and generally everything kittens need, or as much of it as I could afford. While the two sisters were still little, they got along just fine. They slept together, took care of each others hygiene and most importand of all, they used the litterboxes I bought them.

As they grew older and matured, they began to fight. First only a little, about certain "cat-spots" but in the end they turned the house in a warzone with established territorial borders, which one cat could only cross if she was prepeared to be assaulted by the defending party. Along with the fighting came the pooping and peeing, almost everywhere in the house. My girlfried and I were unable to explain this behavior, since they obviously knew how to use their litterboxes and we positioned one in each cats territory. I even bought another one for the neutral ground (which was for some reason the downstairs toilet).

When we asked the cats' veterinarian about this strange, almost random defecating, he told us that this kind of behaviour is not common in cats but not unheard of. They obviously try to mark their respective territories that way, since the usual way (using these glands on their necks) didn't seem strong enough for them. At this point we didn't know what to do with the cats. On the one hand they had become a part of our daily lifes and housemates, on the other hand they already destroyed some really valuable stuff including a scanner, a NDS and a PSP. I never got why they were so fond of peeing in MY entertaiment stuff, when they could have used my girlfriend's pink NDS. My girlfried won, and we closed away our feces-sensitive stuff, when we left them alone, but you never get rid of this smell...

Well in the end one of the two cats got hit by a car and died and almost instantly the other cat started using her three litterboxes again. I do not recommend letting your cat getting hit by a car (those were some really tough weeks for us), but if you want this to stop, you propably will have to give one cat away. Otherwise, you might have to live with it, given that rivalry is really the trigger.

Hm this is a bit too off topic for these forums. I close it down, the best advice was already given, have the cat checked out by a vet
