No, c'mon that was not pee. I know pee, I have never seen animal or human pee as pure transparent and odorless and... it was water.

I go with sleep walk than pee.

Have it your way.


There's a lump of dried urine in my cat's litter box right now that's ~ 10cm x 8cm x 3 cm-- volume 240cc.
If that were liquid spread out in a round puddle 1mm (0.1cm) deep, that would be a circle covering an area of 2400 cm^2-- with diameter ~27 cm- or 54 cm wide (almost 2 ft across. If that lump were 1/2 sand and 1/2 urine, we're sill talking about a puddle ~30 cm across (1 ft).


Is it more likely the cat (cats well known to do such things) or that sleep walked (haven't done that in decades) and spilled? Found any empty glasses around the next morning?


Sorry if I seem to be harping, but this is such a good exercise in deductive reasoning.

Did you ever notice how much cat pee stinks? It smells much worse than dog pee or human pee. Litter absorbs much of it's smell. If it were cat pee, you'd know it from across the room.

Well, water is always present in the air, so somehow it condensed so didn't come from "nowhere". The question now becomes to find out what the mechanism behind it condensing in that particular area would have been.

As far as condensing: Sometimes, in the colder months, older bathroom fans will condense the air into water. It all depends on where it is vented and if they used insulated ducting. The fans are supposed to vent through the roof to the outside; but some contractors could have vented them into the attic or the old tape holding flexible conduit could have failed. Anyway, it is one thing that should be considered in the colder months with mysterious water drops.
