Q. My cat is peeing laundry baskets and on clothes and is fixed. How do I stop her from doing this

Answered By

A. Cats can do this when they are stressed about something. It could be a new cat in the area or a change in the house. Sometimes a new member of the family, New furniture or even a change in washing detergent. Ideally you need to find out what is stressing the cat and change that. You can also try plug in pheromone diffusers such as feliway.
