How to Create a Cat-Friendly Bathroom

Introduction: Why Do Cats Pee in the Bathtub?

Cat peeing in the bathtub is a common occurrence but sometimes this behavior can be frustrating for everyone involved. There are many reasons why your cat might have an urge to urinate in the tub, from a desire to mark their territory to stress or anxiety which can make cats feel overwhelmed by their environment. Communication between you and your cat may also be difficult because of natural separation anxiety that can lead cats outdoors due to fear of coming home alone at night. When cats urinate on your bedding it can be frustrating for both of you. So, why do cats pee on the bed? There are several main reasons why this happens.
One of the most common reasons is that cats urinate on your bedding to mark their territory. This can be done through spraying urine or through simple passive marking where cats will leave a small puddle of urine on surfaces that you frequent so that you get used to their scent and recognize it as a familiar smell. Cats can also do this behavior because of stress or anxiety over something in their environment such as changes in the house, meeting new people, adding pets or moving.

Different Types of Bathrooms and How to Create a Cat Friendly One for Your Cat

we can divide bathrooms into two types: the type where the toilet is separate from the sink and shower and the type that has all three in one room. The latter is the most convenient, as it keeps all of your bathroom equipment in one place. In this case you can create an especially cozy comfortable toilet corner for the cat, with soft towels and a basket with toys in it.
One of the most popular and comfortable bathroom designs for the cat is a sink, toilet and shower room in one room. This is convenient because you do not have to go back and forth between the rooms. In this design all three areas of the bathroom can be put on one floor and they are close to each other. There are different types of bathrooms with these layouts: with a regular shower cabin and a bath cabin, or with all three elements in one room. The latter one is especially convenient for the cat. Not only does it keep your bathroom equipment in one place, but also it is a very comfortable design with soft towels and a basket with toys in it.
When you have a bathroom layout like this the first thing that catches your attention is the bath cabin. Here walls and floors vary in texture, wood and stone. The entire bathroom is white while the tub, floor or lights are all in bright colors. Using this type of bathroom design simplifies cleaning.

The Best Ways to Keep Your Bathroom Safe from Cats

Try placing some water or a small saucer with a few drops of lemon juice or white vinegar inside in the bathroom. Cats don’t like the smell and will avoid going there. You should also consider removing any objects that are dangerous for your pet. You’ll have to replace the carpet with another type of flooring as cats can easily swallow the fibers. A scraping of a beard or hair coat will make any cat uncomfortable. Avoid feeding your cat before five o’clock in the morning as this could encourage them to pee in the bathroom. If these methods don’t work then you need to get rid of your pet as they can ruin the mood of your home and its hygiene.
