I have a cat which was a stray cat 10 years ago. No pee tray or litter tray was provided as she knows how to do her business in the toilet without any training from the 1st day.
However, the problem is in the recent years my cat started peeing on the rug/carpet outside the toilet even the toilet is dry. The urine will seep through the carpet and wet the floor, eventually flowing all around the area which makes the whole kitchen very smelly. Occasionally she will even spray urine onto the refrigerator or on the carpet beside the refrigerator.
I found that these post are quite similar for my problem in some way:
What are scents which cats do not like?
Why does my cat go to the toilet at the same time as I do?
There are three things that I could not figure out why:
She loves to pee on the carpet outside the toilet when there is nobody around, even though the toilet is dry (my cat seems to be a good actor; she will always pee in the toilet when she knows that I am home, but ignores my mother or grandmother even when they caught her in the act; she seems to only care when I am around.)
She loves to seek my attention when I am home, and "bring" me to the toilet to "over-see" to prove to me that she did go to the toilet.
Why does she only pee on the carpet but will 100% poop in the toilet even when the floor of the toilet is dry.
The only reason I could think of is that my cat loves me more than other family members as I am the one who took her in, takes care of most of her stuff, and hug her like a child every night before I go to bed. I will praise her everytime she goes to the toilet. Therefore she "respects" me and wants to prove to me that she a good cat doing her business in the toilet.
What could possibly be the actual reasons? Is there any ways that I could correct her?
