The idiot twins have no idea how close we are to not being able to put up with them any more.

Last night they peed outside of the box two times. The first was on the floor between the bed and the box. I discovered it when I stepped in it while I was getting ready for bed. The second time was even more blatent. I woke up at 4:30am, and saw one of the boys peeing on the bed between Tom & I. Between the dark and my lack of glasses I have no idea which one it was.

The peeing has been a problem ever since we moved into this house, and we are out of ideas for dealing with it.

This is what we've done:

- Behavioral stuff:
-- they're on prozac
-- they stay in Tom's & my bedroom, so they don't have to deal with Kailey's cat Socks or the dogs that Kailey grooms at home
-- everything they hit gets cleaned with with Nature's Miracle and/or vinegar
-- recently started treating hit spots with No-Mark
-- the box gets scooped at least every other day

- Medical stuff (they've both been diagnosed with crystals in their urine at various times, Skif has been diagnosed with and treated for a urinary tract infection):
-- they only eat the special food the vet recommends to prevent crystals
-- they get fresh water every day

Does anybody have any ideas for other things to try? I'll be calling the vet today to make an appointment to check if the urinary tract problems are back. The two ideas I plan on asking the vet about are adding wet food to their diet and switching them to distilled water.
