My female cat is 7 and I've had her since she was 4 months old. We moved when she was 1.5 and she started peeing all over the house. There was blood in the pee and the vet gave her antidepressants but it didn't work so we let her outside and she was okay.
She also stopped liking other cats after we moved. In November last year, one cat she grew up with moved away with my sister. In February this year, the other cat we had died but she really hated him. In early march, we got another cat about 1.5 years old and she's crazy and funny and little but i still loved my cat the most.
Then, in early June, she started peeing little drops everywhere but there was no blood. We took her to the vet and they tried to get a urine sample but couldn't, and kept her for a few hours but still couldn't, so they gave her an antibiotic shot and she peed for real in her litter box the next day.
We haven't changed her food or litter type, nor had anything recently changed. Then we went on vacation for 10 days and when I got home, she had peed everywhere in my room. On my bed, on paper on the ground, in her litter box, on anything on the ground. I cleaned most of it up but I was tired from the drive and went to sleep. Then she woke me up at 2 am by almost peeing on me. She was preparing to pee on my bed and on me and I took her to her litter box and when she went back to trying to pee on me, I moved it next to my bed.
I noticed that in addition to her squatting to pee everywhere, she's started to pee standing up with her back arched and tail shaking, her back against the wall or my bedskirt or my suitcase. I don't know if it's medical or mental and I don't want to stress her out more by taking her to the vet but I'm worried and honestly annoyed because she's peeing on everything.
Another thing I noticed since I got home yesterday, she's started flopping down more. She'll jump on my bed and immediately flop and lay down or she'll stop walking and flop over. It's different than her normal flopping; it's not the cute kind. I've tried giving her treats and sitting with her outside and we have a catnip plant growing that she loves and nothing has calmed her down. I'm desperate for advice.
