If anyone plays games on their computer now and then you will know this feel..
dawww s/he just wants to be close. Poor little animals cant understand why their human hero wants to sit in one place and stare at a little flashing square all day. If you saw an animal doing that you might think it was ill and want to comfort it. Maybe s/he's hoping you will get better and snap out of it.
This may not be the right place and maybe I should just make a separate thread but I don't post on /an/ much. If I should take it to another board or make a separate thread I'll do so but it IS cat related
Basically my cat whom I had since I was about 4 or 5 is getting old and my mother an I think she is becoming a bit demented. She's 16 or 15~ now and she keeps urinating and poo'ing in the dining room as opposed to the two litter boxes by her little cat tree she sleeps in 70% of the time.
It's gotten to where she just is peeing in my room which is carpeted (does it RIGHT under the TV area which is heavy and it seeps underneath which is a pain). She also crys when she wakes up sometimes as she faces a wall when she sleeps and most likely doesn't know where anyone is and it has gotten to the point where I need to wear earplugs at night since she'll wake me up at 3~ 4am.
My mother and I have no idea what to do and she is thinking of putting her to sleep if this doesn't stop.
tl;dr 15yr old cat is peeing and pooing in non-litterbox 90% of the time and crying loudly at night, mom can't take it, should the cat be euthanized?
I've never had to make the decision and I've no idea what to do. She's shown no sign of stopping and I don't know if she's in pain. Her hearing and sight have clearly deteriorated greatly.
My cats sit on my lap when I play games, they will hop on, receive some petting and then go for a snooze.
My lap is the prized seat in my cat's lives, they have fought over it and when one cat finds another already sitting there she will give the sleeping one an evil look.
They also love my computer chair even though I spend most of the day burying farts into it.
