@Purple_Bride:  I have no advice but we had a Siamese female car years ago and it did the same thing. Whenever my mom would leave her for a few days, she would pee in the bed. My mom ended up finding a new home for her

How about a large carrier for when you are gone? Or a room that she can be in for a couple days – like a master bathroom, probably no furniture – hide the towels or laundry from her so she can literally only pee on the linolleium floor – fun. I don’t think she would pee on the linolleium. Now, if you have tile flooring I don’t know what I would do? Then, the large carrier might be your only option – would have to be pretty large though – big enough to fit a small litter box / bed – pretty hard to find. Do you have an unfinished basement?

My cat did this, but it was due to a health issue. Are you 100% sure she doesn’t have a urinary tract issue? It might be worth taking her to a vet to rule it out. That said, I did end up having to train my cat to Stay off the furniture. He is allowed on 1 chair, and he knows it. i did this by putting tin foil on all the furniture surfaces when not in use. They don’t really like the texture or sound it makes. We didn’t have to do this forever, so while I understand its an eyesore, it certainly helped in my case.We keep bedroom doors closed at all times.  Basically, do your best to limit opportunity.

Siamese cats are crazy. My aunt has an older cat (not siamese) that has been peeing on beds a LOT recently. One way to retrain a cat is to lock it in a small room with its litter box- have you tried this? Do you have a bathroom you could put the litter box, her food and water in and the leave her there for a while? Sadly it didn’t work with my aunt’s cat, but she’s old and extremely obese so it wasn’t that surprising.

From my experience, your only option is to take the couch to the curb and light it on fire. Nothing but fire can cleanse something of cat pee.

Can you put both cats in the basement and block the cat door while you’re not home? Just moving a chair or box in front of the cat door should be sufficient. My female cat peed on DH’s clothing if he left anything on the floor too long – the problem stopped once she was spayed. Maybe try talking to your vet and see if he/she has any solutions – could be separation anxiety.

Have you looked into hiring a professional cleaner that specializes in cleaning leather? That is really my only suggestion in re: to getting the smell out of the couch.

Good luck!
