Cat urinating on couch
I don't know if this counts as a "family matter" exactly, but our cat is part of our family. Unfortunately, he seems to have claimed one of our couches as his own and pees on anything that's not the actual couch including throw pillow, pile of laundry and my son's backpack (which we threw away...he forgot to take his flash drive out first and therefor lost all of his file...but I digress). The first incident was when we were dog-sitting and we thought that the cat was reacting to that. The subsequent times have just been at random times.
Other than removing everything from the couch and spraying it liberally with de-scent spray, what can we do?
