Siamese male marking his territory

I wonder if someone can help us. My wife and I have two Siamese. Lily who is 15 and Harley who is 4. Absolutely no problems until a year ago when we introduced Sonny - now 2 years old. All have been spayed.

Unfortunately he regularly appears to be "marking his territory" on bedding in the cat basket and sometimes our washing when we are getting it ready to put into the washing machine. We have tried different deterents that people have advised (orange peel, calming sprays) - but nothing appears to be working?

All three use the two cat trays in the kitchen ok.

They are house cats who only go out into our back garden when we are in attendance.

Any advice/comments will be gratefully accepted!

New Boy Peeing

Hi there,

I think that Sonny is peeing to establish his territory as there is another rival male in the house with gorgeous blue eyes, and only two years older than Sonny, so herein lies the problem. No amount of orange peel or plug-ins will help. I have had years of this with my two males, that is why it is a disaster having males together. I don't know what to suggest, unless you want to let one of them out more frequently to vent their spleen on surrounding territory.

Cats are much more territorial than dogs and males want to establish boundaries. I wish that I could be a little more hopeful, however this is a terrible age for them, they are at their peak.

He is just so cute them big blue eyes are so pretty.
I have two Siamese cats when I bought the second kitten home my cat was really mad with me. She started poopping in the hallway and my bedroom.
I spoke to the vet who told me to get a feliway plug in. It is quite expensive £15 to £20 but after a few days she was pooping in the tray again.(It does take a couple of days of use)
The plug in does seem to last a long time so its worth it. You can also get a feilway spray which is a little cheaper.
I now only use the plug in when I thing my cats my get stressed Guy Faulks night and if they need to go to the vet for jabs ect.
Please give it a try. I thought it was just a load of nonsense that a spray could help with litter problems but it did.
Best of luck.
