Thanks for your input Marylyn.I have a mattress pad on there,one of the first 
things I bought when it all started.I also have a water proof one at the foot 
of my bed on top,I got tired of washing my bedding every other day,especially 
having to go to the laundromat. :( I have used Cosequin or Dasequin for my fiv+ 
boy with mouth issues,but stopped,seemed to not make a difference. I will have 
to look into that for this problem. I believe one of the vets at the Cat Clinic 
is a holistic vet.

See if you can find a holistic vet.  There may be some supplements you  
can use.  Somewhere I read had cosaquin stregthens bladder  
muscles.....I have no personal knowledge but am a big fan of holistic  
medicines, especially when the regular vets are out of ideas.  There  
are nice mattress pads that have a vinyl back (I just put one on my  
bed from K-Mart because of the kittens--ferals are not as easily  
trained as I would like :).  Also there are pads dogs can  
wear....wonder if she would wear them?
