If you’re wondering why is my Cat peeing on plastic bags then you’ve come to the right place
In this article you’re going to learn why your little feline friend loves peeing on plastic bags
You’ll discover how you can stop this and get them to pee IN the litter box
Let’s get started!
My Cat Pees On Plastic Bags – Possible Reasons
Cats are pretty awesome right
I mean they sometimes do the weirdest things
And one example is peeing on plastic bags
It can be funny (Sometimes!) until it gets to a point where your Cat has just stopped using the litter box completely and looks for every opportunity to pee in a plastic bag!
So whys is your Cat peeing on plastic bags?
To be honest it’s because they love to pee on plastic!
It’s not that ALL Cats like to pee on plastic bags but you can say it’s a Cat thing
And your Cat is peeing on plastic bags makes it that he loves it! (If that makes sense!)
In fact they love to lay in plastic bags too!
But that may not be the only reason
There could be a number of possibilities why your Cat is not using the litter box and peeing on plastic bags
It’s important we go through them just to be on the safe side
And the first possible reason could be medical
As soon as you start to see your Cat avoiding the litter box it’s important you take your little furball to the vets
Because a Cat won’t just stop using the litter box for no reason
One of the common reasons is UTI (Urinary Tract Infection)
You’ll only know by getting your Cat checked up at the Vets
It’s better to be safe than sorry right?
If your Cat is all good (I hope he is!) then you need to take a look at the litter box
If you’ve moved to a new house then your cat may find it hard to adjust to their environment
They love routine so a new house can be difficult for them and can cause stress which means peeing outside the litter box
I won’t go into much detail because I’ve written an article about this – Cat not using litter box after moving
Is The Litter Box Cleaned Regularly?
A Cat will avoid using the litter box if it’s dirty just as how we humans would not want to use a washroom that is not up to our standards
And Cats standards are very high lol
You should try to clean it twice a day and if that’s difficult then at least once a day
I know it can be hard especially if you’re busy and work full time
If that’s the case then you should invest in a automatic litter box
At least that way you know the litter box is cleaned regularly and it will stop this behavior
I have written a article on the best automatic litter box for large cats but it’s the same for normal size cats too
A fresh clean litter box will attract your Cat to use it
I have actually written an article on how to get your Cat to use the litter box

Another obvious way to get your Cat to stop peeing on plastic bags is to make sure none is lying around!
It may sound like common sense but it’s good to be reminded I guess
Make sure plastic bags are not on the floor and kept away so your Cat can’t get to them
This will literally stop the peeing on plastic bag business
If the pee does somehow go on the floor then it’s important you clean this up thoroughly otherwise your cat may go to that spot and pee there
I would recommend checking out
Why do I recommend this?
Because not only does this remove cat urine smell but also the stain
But there’s more
You can also use this for other purposes
Such as cleaning the kitchen counter, bathroom, pet accessories
It’s a multi purpose which is pretty awesome
You’re getting more for what you pay
That’s a bargain!

When your Cat starts to pee other than the litter box it can become a frustrating problem!
Especially if you come home to puddle of urine on plastic bags!
But the reason your Cat is peeing on plastic bags is because they like them!
So the best thing to do is make sure there’s no plastic bags lying around in the house
Another important job you need to do is get your Cat checked out at the Vets to ensure nothing is wrong with your little feline friend medically
I would like to stress to ALL Cat parents to avoid shouting at your Cat or punishing them
This will make things worse and can cause your Cat to become stressed which leads to litter box avoidance
They’re not doing this to get your angry or for some sort of revenge
The key is having patience and treating your Cat with love and affection
