A few weeks ago, I moved into my first apartment. I brought my two outdoor cats with me. They were indoor cats, but my mam had a baby years ago and decided she didn't want them in the house anymore. I knew they hated being outside and so was delighted to bring them in. They are 12 and 15 year old respectively, and they love it here! They won't even look outside, just follow me around all day.
My concern is at night my 15 year old, male cat (named Mylo) is perfect during the day and would originally sleep in the living room/kitchen. He started to pee outside the litter box, so I got one with a cover and it went well until he started to pee on the counter! I knew putting him in a different room at night was a bad idea because he cries out non-stop for hours, really loud! We tried having him in our room, but he cries to be in the living room and walks on our faces at night. I know he loves the bed being beside the radiator at night and thought that would be a reason.
I just can't stand the peeing on my counter near appliances. I know he's slightly deaf and very confused and also goes around with his tongue out most of the time after hours of over grooming. I don't like listening to him cry in the bathroom because it breaks my heart. I don't even want to wait until he gets used to it. I just don't understand what to do.
