Would a new cat(s) pee in old cat's smelly pee spot?
I have an older cat and we lost his brother a few months ago. I and am considering getting either one or two new cats.
My current cat's brother had kidney problems at the end and there were certain parts of the carpet where he had peed. My current cat also does not have stellar litter habits and he has some areas he pees on the rugs. I don't see the need in replacing any rugs until he is gone since I'm afraid he might still pee on them even if we replaced them (and I'd much rather have a house that smells like pee and have my awesome kitty than to have neither of these).
However, I am afraid that if I brought a new cat(s) into the house, they would start peeing in these spots too.
Has anyone had this type of problem? Did you bring in a new cat with good litter habits only to find him copying off the old cat and peeing on the rug? Any advice on how to prevent this problem?
Thanks in advance for your help.
