    It's definitely not an emergency, I saw her doing it on the door mat a couple of weeks ago and she was really chilled, and she has never been out of the front door so although she's curious I wouldn't have thought she'd associate it with somewhere she goes to pee.

    OH's theory is that it's when she's had a stinky shit in the litter tray and it's raining outside, and that because she's done it there before she thinks she can do it again.

    Hope Chaves isn't a cheat because he's great.

    Total man crush on Roche too, shame he couldn't hold them off the other day.

    Oh yeah she didn't piss on the bed while OH's sister was in it. That would have been worrying.

    She said that she had read cats sometimes like pissing on feather duvets - which made us think she had accidentally shut the cat in the room and was trying to cover it up.

    The thing is, she's using the litter tray all the time, and normally wees and poos in there. I think there's only five occasions in all that she's gone elsewhere in the house, so it doesn't seem to be an aversion to the litter tray. She's seemingly used it happily from the day we brought her home.

    She seems to just be trolling us, but then she's so sweet the rest of the time I don't think she means it.

    No new pets, but it is a relatively new environment for her. About 3 weeks I suppose. She is showing no other unhappy cat signs though, she's eating, cleaning herself, purring, and very sociable.

    Though it says they're based in W6 I think they're actually a network of local sanders. We're in E7 so E17 would hopefully get the same guy.

    The guy who did our original quote looked just like Meggy from This Is England. Thankfully he didn't shit on our floor.

    Tesla has found a couple of creative places to wee. A couple of weeks back she used the door mat inside our front door, so we got rid of it. Since then she has pissed on our mail which lands where the mat was a couple of times, which isn't a great state of affairs. This is despite her having not only a litter tray, which she has otherwise used reliably, but now also having a cat flap which she happily uses. Also while we were away at the weekend she pissed on the bed in the spare bedroom as well - where my OH's sister was sleeping.

    What to do? Take away the litter tray as well to remove die Qual der Wahl? Is there any way to keep her away from the front door?

    @Dammit did she ever get creative like this with you?

    It was these guys that we used:

    The Floor Sanding Experts

    Highly recommended as I said

    The ones which have come up lovely at our place looked a LOT shitter than that to start with. I will post details of who did ours when I get home, but I would happily recommend them to anyone, they were great.

    The work was scheduled to take at least two days, but the showed up at 8:00am on Good Friday (sorry neighbours) and worked 12 hours straight without a break and did it all in a day. It looks great too.

    If you don't need any extra boards, anything relaying or any filling done it should work out about a third of the price of new flooring, underlay and labour, and will always look better.
