Q. My cat is 14 and peeing in the floor?

A. It could be a behavioral or a medical reason for this. Has anything stressful happened to the cat recently? A new pet or person in the house? New furniture, new floor cleaner or even a new cat in the neighborhood that is doesn`t get on with???? If it could be one of these you can try pheromone sprays or diffusuers. Is it straining to pass urine? Could be cystitis, neurological...... You need to take it along to your vet for an examination
