Would a fox crying upset the cat?
We adopted Mitsy from the SPCA back at the end of August. She was spayed early September and we had a great first few weeks. We went away for 24 hours in October, when we came home Mitsy started urinating every once and a while in places other then her litter box, we added 2 additional litter boxes one on each floor of our house now. By the end of October she continued to have issues and one Saturday she urinated 4 times in places other then her litter box, Sunday she urinated on our bed, Monday I called the Vet, took her in. The Vet was thinking she had a UT, the test was inconclusive, but Vet gave us a round of Antibiotics. We also bought Mitsy a Pheromones Calming Collar she wore it for about for about 2 weeks and has been doing great so I took it off of her.
We started having issues again the other night, Mitsy was up over night crying, then she came into our bedroom climbed up on our bed and urinated. Then she urinated on my husband's work clothing. She was in my daughter's room just pacing, and breathing heavy. I placed the calming collar back on her and then next night we made the decision to keep her in the basement over night, because we all needed to sleep.
Over night we heard a fox crying outside, would this sound be upsetting our cat and causing her to urinate to mark her territory? What can we do to make sure she knows she is safe and to keep her from urinating in our bedroom?
Any suggestions, please would be appreciated, because if this urinating in the house continues, she will need to become an outside cat.
