Hope you don't get tired of me asking questions hehe I thought I was the expert in cats, but I guess not! So I'll just repeat the situation, I have a 10 yo male and 2 yo female (that we just adopted) and since we adopted her, we've been finding pee spots over the house. First it was the brand new sofa, twice. So we decided to cover them at night so they don't pee on them. Now, Baby (the male) has sleeping beds around the house, like a box in the office, bed by the radiator, and we have a big cat tree where Lola (the female) sleeps. First we found pee in the box in the office, and then today there is pee on his bed by the radiator. We still don't know who pees, because it happens at night. Would Baby pee in his own sleeping spots? Or could it be Lola? I don't know how to discourage this behaviour.
Sounds like one or both are marking their territories (big misconception that only males do this, females absolutely do it as well). Unfortunately if that's the case and you're not catch them in the act there isn't a whole lot you can do. I would suggest confining them to one room at night either together or seperate whatever you feel is best to minimize the damage. It may very well stop once things settle down. Cats do not take to new cats coming into their home readily (especially a 10 year old senior), nor do they take to change very well, so you've got it stacked against you double. If they aren't fixed I would recommend doing that, if they are, again unless you catch them there isn't a whole lot you can do. Make sure you are cleaning those spots with a good enzyme cleaner to get out the smell as they will continue to go where they smell they (or another) has gone in the past. Make sure you have more than 1 litter box at this point and keep both VERY clean, and I'd confine them at night if that's the only time it's happening and unfortunately without seeing them do it that's about the best you can do.
