He may be losing bladder control while he is sleeping. If it is occasional, you may just be able to let it pass.

you might be able to get used to sleeping in cat piss, or waking up and changing your bedding every once in a while in the middle of the night because your cat pisses on them, but I think that is a repulsive behavior that is unacceptable.

Because you don't understand what it is like to adopt a stray. I do. But you know, you may be right.


I say get it depenised.

Calm down, dude. I don't think that was what he was suggesting. On that note, I'm not going to sleep in cat-wee, and I really have no problem with changing the sheets in the middle of the night every so often. I have a two and a half year old. Kinda used to it.

Of course, I'd rather NOT have to do this, but I also don't want to use possibly offensive chemicals on my bed to discourage him if it's something that will pass. This is my first time having kittens, so I'm just wondering if it's normal, or whatnot.

Any advice is appreciated!

That would prevent him from sleeping on my bed/inhibit the bonding experience. He roams around if he's not sleeping on my bed at night, and I kind of like that he sleeps with me. I feel it's important in these first few weeks of having both my kittens that they feel safe/comfortable with and around me.

you are right, though, I don't understand adopting strays. I think they'd serve a much better purpose as a food source for the hungry.

seriously.

I understand. My dogs sleep in bed with me and my wife and I really appreciate it and recognize the bonding experience. With cats, though, apparently they show their love and affection by occasionally pissing or shitting on your stuff (if you're lucky) on on you while you're sleeping.

I'm glad you understand my angle here, but I'm going to respectfully suggest that your statement is like saying that a baby shows his/her love and affection by pissing and shitting on your stuff. They're kittens. As in a feline form of a human baby. He was JUST trained, and I doubt he's doing it to be obstinate.
