My cat peeing in the bed

Hello my cat sasha has started peein in our bed on my side of the bed. This seems to only happen when she is in heat. but being disabled and on a fixed income that barely keeps my head above water. I am unable to get in touch with a vet to have her checked to rule out a uti. but I don't believe that is what the problem is. Cause of where she pees on the bed I think she is marking. she pees right where my hips are. no where else. otherwise she uses the cat box. and yes it is cleaned daily. As I can not afford to replace my bed and this issue only arises durring her times she has been in heat.
Other than having her spayed, which will happen real soon here what else can I do to stop this from happening?

Close your bedroom door?

I would just close the door if there was one in my motor home I have put her in the bathroom and closed the door there overnight that is where i keep the
catbox and thier food and fresh water. I hate having to close her in the bath
room cause I feel like she is being punished for something she, under the stress of being in heat, has no control over. She is under alot of stresses
due to her being in heat.

You may also need to clean the mattress with a special cleaner. It could be that she's peeing in that same spot because she keeps smelling where she peed before.

Ahhh, okay. Does she only pee on the bed when you're not in it? If that's the case, perhaps putting something like a plastic sheet (garbage bag or something similar) over it would help. It would at least be easier to clean.....

Actually she dose this when I'm in the bed other than that she has been
using her cat box. But will try to use the absorbant bed pads we have to help stave off the urine getting into the bed it's self again I am using several different anti microbial cleaners to get rid of the cat urine smell on the bedding and on the bed. she dosen't do this while we are not in the bed.
and the daily cleaning out of the cat box should have kept her out of this cycle. I have no room in here for more than one cat box. and that is why the frequent changes. that is why I think it is from her being in heat, maybe
she is marking or trying to mark me as the dominant male in the house?
I'm really not sure how that works with cats.
