I feel bad if we have to put her down or take her to the humane soceity because she can not help this! any help or advice would be great!
She should be fed a good quality wet food diet, not a prescription diet and definitely no kibble. Raw would be ideal, but if that isn't an option, then a grain-free, by-product free canned food like Wellness, Nature's Variety, Weruva, By Nature, Merrick, etc.

Can you call the vet and ask for a copy of the lab work? The type of crystals and other results can be an important piece of the puzzle.

How many litter boxes do you have and how often are they cleaned? What type of litter do you use? What are you cleaning the urine spots with? These can all be factors in these situations. Here is another link for you to read, this one on inappropriate elimination: http://www.catinfo.org/?link=litterbox

I'd suggest picking up a couple of Feliway diffusers and a bottle of Feliway spray, as well as asking your vet for some Cosequin supplements. Please don't give up on your kitty! She needs you to help her.
