Guest javakaty Posted August 18, 2013 Share Posted August 18, 2013 We've had Nica for a month (today) and haven't had any accidents so far. She gets free reign of the house while we're gone (up to 9 hours) and is completely fine. Some mornings she won't pee even if I take her out for 15+ minutes and then my husband takes her out for another 15 minutes.... She hasn't figured out how to tell us she needs to go outside (we haven't heard her bark or roo yet, and only random whines/squeaks when she yawns); but we take her out before we leave and as soon as we get home, a few times in the evening and right before bed. Last night we went out an hour or 2 before bedtime and she peed...when we decided it was time to go to bed we figured we wouldn't take her out since she had just gone (and sometimes doesnt go on the last pee break if we go out a few hours earlier). Last night she left her bed in the bedroom in the middle of the night and ended up in the living room...I thought it was odd, but she likes the living room better because that is where we spend most of our time. Woke up this morning and there was a huge pee spot on a blanket that had fallen off the bed. Any advice? We've been so lucky that we haven't had any accidents until now, but we're disappointed in her for not telling us she needed to go out in the middle of the night (although we've never had to take her out in the middle of the night and she's been fine), and disappointed in ourselves for setting her up for failure by not taking her out for the last pee break of the night. We're hoping this isn't the beginning of new habits....do we dismiss this as a 1 time thing (our mistake) or do we need to be concerned that we might have a bigger issue???
