I've noticed bella has been going pee pee a lot more often. Especially when she is allowed freedom of the house. She will pee every few minutes in different spots on the carpet like she is marking. Do you think she is marking or do only boys do that?

Could she be coming into heat???






I have a female who thinks shes male....she'll lift her leg to pee...i think it has to do with the fact she was the only female in a litter of five!....Too much male hormones in the womb! :wink:

You may want to take her to the vet to rule out a UTI. Sometimes when they start peeing more frequently and drinking more it's a sign of a infection. But, I do think that girls mark because when I take Sadie for a walk sometimes she pees maybe 5 or 6 times and sometimes only a drop comes out!

yes females do mark. Lady follows the males around and has to go right on top of where they went. However, yours seems to young to pick that up. I could be wrong
