We all deal with what our cats leave behind and most of the time that's okay, because it's contained in a litter box. Cat urine in the carpet is another matter all together. Cats pee indoors for many reasons, including: environmental changes, new pets or children being introduced into the home, and changes in their little. The biggest reasons start urinating in the home is because of medical issues. A sick cat will make every effort to make sure that you know they're not feeling well. Since a cat can't talk urinating in a very obvious place will let you know there is a problem.
Cat urine has a very strong odor and can easily change the air quality in your home. I do a lot of cat urine removal treatments in the Tampa FL area and there are always signs that the cat has started to urinate indoors. Most people notice when they start to smell the ammonia that is off gassed from the dried urine crystals. Cats like to go to the bathroom when they feel safe and secure in their environment. When something is wrong they will urinate in an unusual place. I have found cat urine in closets, under furniture, and on stairwells.
