@Mrsgurzakovic: Did you ever get him vet checked before giving him away? Is he neutered? Were all the spots cleaned with enzyme cleaner?

Honestly it sounds like he’s sick.

How much effort was made to correct the urination? The cat sounds like it is sick.

I agree with pp that your cat sounds like it might be ill.

 

Also, I’m not sure what your mother’s question is exactly, but the cat most certainly can and does remember you.  Will he get over being given away?  Depends on the cat, I guess.  My aunt died 8 months ago and her cat is still grieving.

My mother had a very very old cat who suddenly started peeing all over her house. He wasn’t sick, he was just starting to go a little loopy at his age. My mother works at a vet clinic and started giving him some medication but it made him lose his appetite and get very lethargic… in the end my mom decided to put him to sleep.

How old is your cat? Since he is not fixed, it could just be behavioural (cats mark their territory like dogs do and this is more likely to happen if the cat isn’t fixed).

You should take him to a vet.

I’m sure your cat does remember you and how long it would take to adjust to a new home depends on the cat

@Mrsgurzakovic: Well since he’s not neutered it could be one of two things:

1) Marking

2) UTI

He NEEDS to go to a vet to rule out a UTI. If he has a UTI that can lead to a kidney infection and potentially death.

If he’s marking, then neutring is pretty much the only way to fix that. Although once cats learn the marking behavior, even neutering may not stop it.

@KatNYC2011: I agree with this. Let us know how the vet visit goes.

Just wanted to second that he is either marking or has a UTI. 

Additionally, if there are other, unneutered male cats at the new house, there could be territory issues that would lead him to hide/stay in the corner. 

Yes, he will remember you.  But if you don’t change something, it’s likely he’ll go back to peeing all over your house when you bring him back.
