Did you know, despite what we think, that cats NEVER purposely urinate in inappropriate places just to spite us. If you think about it, cats can’t talk! That’s no news to anyone! So they must communicate in a different way to let us know something is not quite right.
Cats don’t realize that urinating in places other than the litterbox is undesirable to us humans, but what they do know is something has made the litterbox unpleasant. Whether it’s behavioral or medical, both are treatable conditions! Behavioral conditions can include simple little changes that we many times don’t realize how stressful it can be to a cat. Such stressors include adding a new pet to the family, buying a different brand of litter or not having enough litterboxes available. Medical conditions include urinary tract infections, bladder stones, and so on. Without question, always, ALWAYS consult your veterinarian in times like this. We are more than happy to help in any way we can to make living with your pet enjoyable!
