Potty Problems ARGH

So, Harriet is nearly 10 months old, and we thought, housebroken. The last two mornings, however, the alarm goes off, we (Harriet and whoever drew the short, cold straw that morning) get out of bed to take her out (we don't have a fenced yard, so we have to actually take her out), she has gotten out of bed when we did, and went to the dining room and peed on the rug. We are literally 3 steps behind her. She does it so fast we don't see her do it. Does anyone have advice for me to stop this?

She's had urinary tract infections in the past, so we've had a rocky road to housebreaking, but she's not exhibiting any of the signs of one of those right now.

We clean that rug with enzyme cleaner, would it be a waste of my time to run a spot bot over it?

Frustrated! :confused:

Thanks Scully, I may decide to have her to the vet if she doesn't stop in a few days, but I'm pretty sure that this is unrelated to the previous UTIs. We, unfortunately were extremely well acquainted with her symptoms. It took 3 months and 4 antibiotics to finally get rid of it.

P.s. Scully, that website is great. The name especially, Harriet is a great mistress of counter cruising.
don't think it's a uti

Well, I don't think it's a uti, when I got home tonight, I took her out, she peed and we came back in and she had her dinner while I washed dishes. Instantly, after dinner, she went into the dining room and took a poo on the rug, bold as anything.

Do you guys think it's the rug?

She just did it again! Was sitting on the couch with me, got up went right to the rug to pee. It has just gotten cold for the first time here. Could it be that she doesn't want to go outside? She's become a heat hog, sitting in front of the heater. If that's it, what do I do?
