Thanks for that information. But I think I've finally solved the mystery of the Pee Spot! Lucky frequently spits up. He'll be fine for days, then have a bout of spitting up almost clear liquid, 3 or 4 times a day. I mentioned to the vet he spits up and the vet seemed unconcerned, saying cats are very susceptible to gastric upset. I now think the spots on the bed were not pee, but spit up. I'm not sure if this is a serious issue; I'll mention it to the vet again. But having him spit up rather than pee is a little easier for me psychologically, at least!

Also pee doesn't smell much when a cat has kidney failure - just FYI as there'd be other symptoms (drinking a lot for example) and also it's at an advanced stage that the pee doesn't smell anymore, because the kidneys can't clean the
body of toxins so it doesn't smell.

I don't think this is the case, but just so it's out there (I had a kitty that
lived with kidney failure for quite a while) also it wouldn't make the cat
incontinent or explain why he's peeing where he sleeps.

If it isn't drool and it is pee, and doesn't smell, that could imply urinary
tract problems.

The bed was wet again this morning, near where he was laying last night. I put my hand on it and it didn't smell. That's what throws me. The black light

I asked my mom is Lucky drools and slobbers -- she's in a convalescent hospital following two severe strokes and communicating is hard -- but she dearly loves her Lucky. She said, "Yes, he slobbers a lot." So, maybe that is the answer!

Some cats are real droolers - it may have nothing to do with teeth - I used to have one cat that made my arm and lap totally wet with drool....if the
drool isn't clear, then it could be a sign of something else.
