My kitty and I woke up the other morning and he started crying for no reason. I went to check on his food, water and litter -- everything was fine. I went off and suddenly he was quiet so I decided to check again. That's when I caught my kitty peeing next to his water bowl. I don't understand why all of a sudden he was misbehaving like this. I quickly put him into his litterbox but he just looked at me like I was the crazy one and jumped out. Sorry, but I don't understand him wanting to pee where he did when nothing out of the ordinary has happened. The only thing is I'm planning to leave him home alone, for the first time, next week for a day and a half -- due to a family funeral. Do you think he knows I'm leaving? That's the only thing I can think of that would cause this. Is that even possible??? Also, should I limit him to only one room? I was planning on leaving the whole house open but after this incident I'm afraid I'll come home to pee and poo all over the place. Advice please.
