About 8 months ago my cat started peeing on my new leather chair.. I took her to the vet and she gave me some medicine for her. I removed the chair and added a litter box in my den. all was well. I reintroduced the chair into the same place after conditioning it over 8 months in the garage with natures miracle and soap and water. two days ago she peed on the chair and today she did it another time. I will be getting a new chair because its covered under a warranty and I really dont want the new chair ruined when I get it. I have no idea on why she is still peeing on it. does anyone have any ideas?

thanks

First, vet check for a re-occurring UTI.
He/she may just not like the smell of the leather. I would put something like a scat mat on the chair until she realizes she can not get on it.

I'd recheck with a vet for anything medical. And maybe there's still an odor in the chair the cat doesn't like. And some cats don't care for leather at all.

You have a warranty that covers your pet damaging the chair? Wow.

Wrap your entire chair in aluminum foil. It works great.

have your vet check her for diabetes. My cat would pee on my bed. She didn't do it every day at first, just occasionally. At first the vet thought it was just bad behavior but after it got worse I took her back to the vet. Turns out she has diabetes and her count was around 600 which is very high.

You are lucky you can get a new chair, that is a sweet deal. Let us know..
