The Wall That Pees Back

This is the middle ground between the litterboxes with and without a lid. It is shaped like a regular litterbox but has an attachment that enlarges the walls but keeps a frontal spout for easy access.
It also has rounded edges on the top side of the walls. Still, unlike other products, these are rounded towards the inside, which provides better protection against litter scatter. So it's nice that it's high without a lid.
However, with my mom's cats, it wouldn't work because they pee and don't turn around - so they would pee right over that spout entrance. You must know your cat's peeing ways to know what litterbox is best to buy. Nature's Miracle High-Sided Litter Box has built-in handles on the sidewalls and the back wall.
As the name might suggest, the NVR Miss litterbox was specially made for high-spraying cats that need special conditions. It has a simple model with high walls and an entry cut out so the cat can get in quickly.
Especially when dealing with high-spraying cats, you need a good scoop to get the litter off the edges of the litterbox. With high sprayers, the pee usually goes on the walls of the litterbox or on the edges. It can also cover a larger litter area, making it more challenging to clean than it is when dealing with cats that squat when they pee. Again, this means you need a good scoop.
A reader on YouTube wrote, "My husband cleans [the litter box] with a special cleaner that breaks down the enzymes in cat pee, to help get the smell out, because she pees up the back wall. Ugh. It's called Nature's Miracle Urine Destroyer Foam. It has a strong scent, so he cleans the litter box outside, but it sure does help get rid of the pee smell!"
I had trouble with my rescue, TT, because he is so long legged and tall that nothing was high enough. I finally resorted to taping a rectangle of thin plastic sheeting to the wall so that it hung down into the box by an inch. Easy to dispose of and replace when I change out the box. Fortunately he always pees toward the back side (wall) side of the box!
Thank you for reporting back about how the Iris hasn't worked for you. There is this one from Chewy that people are using for a Litter Box for High Sprayers, it might work? We are going to be adding it to this post soon.
2. Both SF and Hamburg have (sick?) senses of humor: In Germany, walls are ominously painted with signs that read something along the lines of "You pee here, we pee back." But here, signs simply ask folks to find somewhere else to go, leaving urinators exposed and unprepared for retaliation.
Bladder cancer is a relatively rare form of cancer that starts in the lining of your bladder. Your bladder is a small hollow organ that holds your pee (urine). Healthcare providers have many ways to treat bladder cancer, including surgery to remove bladder cancer. Bladder cancer may come back after treatment, so people with bladder cancer should be vigilant about following up with their healthcare providers.
Bladder cancer happens when certain cells in the tissue lining your bladder mutate or change, becoming abnormal cells that multiply and cause tumors in your bladder. Left untreated, bladder cancer may grow through your bladder walls to nearby lymph nodes and then other areas of your body, including your bones, lungs or liver.
But now, according to Julia Staron of Interessengemeinschaft St Pauli (an interest group for companies and businesses based in St. Pauli), it's "pee-back time." Prohibitions and fines haven't worked very well, so the local authorities are giving chemistry a try. Walls in the district were sprayed with Ultra-Ever Dry super-hydrophobic, oleophobic nano-coating, which is so water (and pee) repellant that urinating on a treated surface becomes a shoe-wetting, trouser-soaking exercise.
House soiling in cats, also called feline inappropriate elimination, is the most common behavioral complaint of cat owners. Problem behaviors can be urine and/or stool deposited outside of the litter box, or marking behaviors. When cats urinate on vertical surfaces, it is known as spraying. Usually the cat backs up to a vertical surface, raises its tail, which may quiver, treads with its back feet, and directs a stream of urine backwards. Marking includes spraying urine on vertical locations; on occasion a cat may mark its territory by urinating small amounts on horizontal surfaces. Rarely, if ever is stool used for marking. In this handout we will discuss the cat that is house soiling. For marking behavior, see Marking and Spraying Behavior.
Although correcting house soiling can take a great deal of time and effort and may require a fairly extensive behavioral assessment, there are cases when a few simple suggestions might do the trick. You can start with determining whether you made a change to the litter or litter area around the time the problem started; if so, switch back to the preferred litter or site. Alternately try a different type of litter such as one that is clumping. Many cats dislike kitty litter that contains strong deodorizers or perfumes. Cleaning the soiled spots with odor eliminators may help prevent re-soiling. Ensure that you provide one more litter box than the total number of cats in the home, in at least two different locations (i.e., if you have three cats, provide at least four litter boxes). Consider putting one of the boxes near to the area where the soiling occurs. Clean the boxes daily and change the litter in the boxes weekly. If after a couple of weeks the problem has not resolved, then a more intense evaluation of the factors that might be causing the problem will be required and other treatments may be needed.
Even after making the litter area more appealing, decreasing the appeal of the soiled areas, and perhaps using anti-anxiety drugs for anxiety-induced or marking problems, the habit may persist. Confinement to an area with bedding, water, and a litter box (and away from the areas that have been soiled) is often necessary to reestablish litter box use. Generally, a small room such as a laundry room, extra washroom, or bedroom where the cat has not previously soiled should be utilized. Be sure to confine your pet in an area where the litter box and litter area are appealing, where there are no obvious deterrents, and that has surfaces that the cat is unlikely to soil. In rare cases where the cat will not use its litter box at all, confinement in a cat cage with perches or a large dog cage with a floor pan covered in litter and a ledge for perching and sleeping may be needed to get the litter use restarted. Most cats will require confinement to this area for 1 to 4 weeks (the longer the problem, the longer the confinement period) to reestablish good litter use. Confinement may not be required all of the time. For example, if the cat only eliminates out of its box at night, or when the owners are preparing for work, then these are the only times that the cat may need to be confined. Many cats will not eliminate in the inappropriate areas when supervised; these cats can be allowed out of confinement when the owner is available to supervise. It may also be possible to allow cats out of confinement with minimal supervision for the first few hours after the cat has eliminated in its litter box. Allowing release from confinement and some food treats immediately following elimination may also serve to reward use of the litter box. Over time, cats that have been confined are gradually given more freedom and less supervision. However, there will be some cats that will use the box in confinement, but once back out in the home will revert to elimination in other locations.
The sacral nerves are located at the base of your back. They carry signals from your brain to some of the muscles used when you go to the toilet, such as the detrusor muscle that surrounds the bladder.
In most patients diagnosed with bladder cancer, the cancer cells began to grow in the thin layer of cells that line the walls of the bladder, which is called the urothelium.1 Bladder cancer cells can gather together to form tumors and if the tumors are only located in the bladder lining, the diagnosis is non-muscle invasive bladder cancer. Muscle-invasive bladder cancer is diagnosed if the cancer cells have grown into the muscles that make up the wall of the bladder. If the bladder cancer cells have spread to other organs or parts of the body beyond the bladder, it is called metastatic bladder cancer.
Pain in the lower back and/or abdomen can sometimes be caused by bladder cancer, and it is more common in patients who are diagnosed with bladder cancer that is advanced or metastatic. The symptom is not usually experienced by patients who are diagnosed with bladder cancer that is considered early stage. The most common symptom of bladder cancer is blood in the urine that is visible to the eye, which is experienced by around 80% to 90% of patients diagnosed. Between 20% and 30% of patients diagnosed with bladder cancer experience other problems or changes related to urination, such as
If a person experiences lower back and/or abdominal pain without any other symptoms, then it is not very likely that the cause is bladder cancer.2 However, if you experience symptoms related to urination as well as lower back or abdominal pain, then your healthcare provider will probably perform a series of tests to find out the cause. In patients with lower back or abdominal pain due to bladder cancer, the pain often occurs on only one side of the body.
It was a lightning-fast move, given that we're talking San Francisco bureaucracy. Back in March, SF Department of Public Works chief Mohammed Nuru made it known that he was pursuing a new line of defense against those who'd pee on public buildings: a urine-repellent coating that would splash back on those relieving themselves against anything painted with the substance.
As we noted back in March, DPW asked residents to email them with suggestions on where to test the paint. And as of today, we have "nine urine-repellent walls in the Tenderloin, the Mission and South of Market," including the pee-central known as the 16th Street BART plaza, the Chron reports. Even more anti-pee walls will be painted next month, with locations still to be determined, a DPW spokesperson says. 2b1af7f3a8
