Default Sara the Cat and Amberleah pee pad

My two year old cat Sara has found a new place to pee, she keeps using Amberleah pee pad and then scratches it all up, I have to keep throwing them away. GRR!!!
I guess she thinks if Amberleah can so can I.
I have to pick it up at night now and during day keep watch. pee pads are too much money to be trowing away so much. My husband normally gets left over from his job when he picks up Hospice equipment after a patient passes, the family's don't want them. But lately he hasn't got any, he thinks the hospice nurses are getting them when they leave before they call my husband to pick up the equipment. Any one have this problem with their cat?.

I would really suggest getting a grass potty patch! They've gotten much cheaper than they used to; now PetCo has the small one for around $40. We have 3 and they are wonderful. I just pick up the poo with toilet paper and flush it; and we rinse the plastic-synthetic grass off regularly.
You would train them to use it just as you do a pee pad. Can even put a pee pad on it to start. Some dogs do need to get used to the feeling of the grass as it's not as soft as the real stuff; but even my littles Zoey uses it with no problem. We actually didn't have to train her, she just figured it out I think because she could smell and see the other dogs using them so she followed suit.
You can also help teach them by putting one on one side of her playpen or crate; her natural aversion to soiling her bed will encourage her to use the opposite side to potty. That way even when you aren't home or able to watch her, she's still kind of "training herself" since that's all she'll be pottying on.

I have to go into the big city tomorrow for doctor apt, I am going to look at them. It would not matter if cat went on that one as long as I wash it off right away.

i used to use the disposable pee pads for minnie and tootsie when they were puppies and then got so frustrated when they started shredding them up. so, i switched to the washable pee pads. they are great! They are expensive ( well, i bought the expensive ones called pooch pads, but there are other places where they are much cheaper) but in the longrun you end up saving money.
my girls will go outside or use peepads. i have a fenced in backyard and when its nice out i try to encourage my girls to go outside, but they are spoiled babies and will not go out when its raining hard or a snowstorm , and feel comfy using the peepads.
anyways.... just thought i would mention the washable pee pads as an option for you to think about

I agree on the washable pads! I got the ones designed for nursing home use. No one shreds anything. I have not purchased disposable pads for months.

Your cat does not know her behavior irritates you, and it isn’t doing it to annoy
you. Cats usually urinate in areas other then their litter box if the box is
undesirable/dirty, or it could be for medical or territorial issues. How often do
you change the litter box? How many cats do you have? How many boxes? Also
is the cat spayed? She could be marking while in heat, that can easily be fixed
by spaying her.
