  • Cats Anonymous: Peeing Problems
    possibly a diet change Once the infection is cleared the cat will resume using the litterbox This should be the very first thing to rule out because if there is a medical reason behind the peeing anything else that you try will be a waste of effort and just plain frustrating Some cats are chronic for getting infections and they could have recurring ones Be sure to carry out the FULL round of prescribed antibiotics and then have your cat in for a recheck If there is still some lingering infection further medications will be needed or else the flare up will be an ongoing issue Once it is cleared prevention with a diet change and close monitoring should help Other common reasons for this behaviour include Is your cat spayed neutered This is a common problem in unspayed unneutered cats When the hormones are fully developed they feel the need to mark their territory even if they are a single cat The smell of a male unneutered cat is also much more pungent then that of a neutered male Have you moved the litter box or changed the type of litter you use A change in the type of litter or even the type of litterbox can cause the cat to avoid it Perhaps offering a SECOND box of a different style or different litter hooded if she liked that one better Some cats object to the scented litters some prefer clumping clay or pine pellets This is an individual preference Don t change everything all at once but rather just change one box to give the cat an option Some cats are fastidious about having a clean box and won t use it if has been even used once before them oh yes we ve seen it all You could even try leaving an empty litter box available for your cat to use if this is the surface preference it wants Is the cat simply peeing over the edge of the box Sometimes larger cats with boxes that are too small for them run into this problem If the cat can not physically get fully into the box and turn around then it is not the cats fault If you are finding urine or feces just outside the box then this could be your issue Are there any obstructions blocking the litter box so that your cat can not physically get to it Sometimes the box is tucked away in an inconvenient area or is inaccessible by other furniture Is it up or down a flight of stairs that the cat finds difficult to climb arthritis obesity Does your cat get cornered in the box by a dog or another cat or children These are all reasons why it may avoid the litter area Is your cat overweight Obesity is a common reason for cats to not want to use the box and the reasons for this vary from cat to cat Fat cats in general tend to
