People tend to assume that a cat is being spiteful or intentional when they pee outside of the litter box, but there are less malicious reasons behind these types of behaviors. Peeing on objects around the house is often a sign of anxiety, or even a medical ailment that is hurting your cat.
Cats can also manifest anxiety in the form of digestive problems, so while it is easy to blame the food you’re feeding your cat, one of the worst things you can do to try and improve the problem is switch their food right away.
The important thing to remember is not to lose hope. As your cat starts to get more comfortable at home, and your vet has eliminated any potential health problems, your cat will likely get back to doing their business in the litter box again.
