Well, I'll try to just stick with the basic facts:
Two of my four male cats became extremely territorial over me and my space and this resulted in frequent urination inside the home. I believe they both have done it regardless of who started it. We've tried the Feliway spray and keeping some doors shut (I have a big house). There are 4 litter boxes in the house, cleaned daily. All cats are neutered. One of them is 11 yrs old and has been with me (along with another kitty) since less than 8 weeks of age. Both are very healthy. The other has been with us over 7 years. Both are huge orange and yellow tabbies and both are very sweet individually. But both want to be top cat. It used to be that my bathtub got peed in, then it was the floor mats. We had to throw out a rug in the office downstairs because it had been pissed all over. We have found piss on the blinds which we had to bleach. Finally, the last straw was finding puddles of piss on the kitchen counter. There have also been articles of my clothing that have been peed on.
I notice they would fight after I had pet one of them. I've had them checked by the vet and there is no medical basis for this. Sadly, I finally had to agree to place them both outside. My husband was about to explode after years of this building up and getting worse. After a point it just isn't something I can defend. I have 3 acres and no main roads nearby and am in a very animal friendly neighborhood. They did not mind at all during the summer and I couldn't even get them to come in when I tried to let them in for a while just as a treat (hubby wasn't home). Now that it is getting colder their fur has really thickened up. I have a garage that I keep with the door cracked open with fleece beds and a crate with blankets. Outside I have an igloo doghouse under the deck that I am insulating as well. It is in the 70's this week during the day and I'm not worried about that. But this will be their first winter being exclusively outdoor cats and naturally I feel very sad and worried even though I'm creating warmed up spaces the best I can. It is possible that when it gets very cold I can lock them in my room (very big room seperate from hubby's) at night and put them out in the daytime. We have a storage closet on the side of the house which I am considering putting a cat door in and making it into a shelter just for them. Now you see these two cats hanging out all the time and laying ass to ass on the deck.
I would really appreciate any suggestions that can help me make the best arrangements. Thank you!
