Last night Alfie peed on my bed, something he's never done before, not even when he was a pup. I was on a video call with my daughter who lives abroad, when Alf kept going to the window and barking. He was told several times to 'come away' but kept going back to it. He wouldn't settle and because I was on the video call, I wasn't given him as much attention as I normally would (wasn't demanding a settle to stop him going back to the window). Something outside was obviously worrying him, although I very much doubt it was anything other than one of the neighbours out there. Just before I finished the call he went upstairs, carrying a toy in his mouth (he often carries a toy around so I'm not sure whether that has any significance but thought I'd mention it anyway). He was gone for about a minute then came back down again. He knows he's not allowed upstairs alone, and generally obeys that rule. I thought perhaps he was just giving me a hint that it was bedtime or something, so I finished the call and went up. When I got up there I was shocked to find my bed soaked! Jack, our cat, was on the bed (another thing that probably isn't significant but I want to give as much information about what happened as possible, just in case it is). I didn't punish Alf, but I did ask him to go out on the landing while I sorted the bed out. I wasn't in the best mood, admittedly, and no doubt he picked up on that because he was slinking about out there, but there was no deliberate punishment involved. I let him sleep in my bed again as usual because I was too tired after sorting the bed (I tire easily because of my illness) to listen to him whine all night outside. He has separation anxiety (has had since he was a pup) and whines, howls, scratches, and generally goes loopy if he can't get to me. That's something else we're working on and it is improving but I don't feel that it'd be helpful at this point to lock him out all night. But what else can I do? Even crating him isn't an option because he goes mad in there, to the point where I fear he'll actually injure himself. I'm really not sure why he peed on the bed or what to do about it. Any ideas?
