Have you ever asked the question Why is my cat urinating in the house. Urinate problem is an annoying behavior that can make you mad, right?
If your cat is recovering from a surgery, she can avoid her litter box because it is painful to urinate. This pain can be associated to the box and make her believe that the box is the problem.
When you notice your cat urinating in house, it’s extremely important take your cat to the vet to do a check up. Vet are trained to deal with medial issue, so the vet should be your first choice, instead of try any behavioral modification.
Another cause of painful urination is an urinary tract infection. Sometimes feline urinary tract disease can be a fatal condition. When not treated right away, a cat with UTI may not have long to live. I know, it’s not nice to hear, so take your cat to the veterinarian and make sure that everything is ok.
Usually, urinary tract infection symptoms are:
- Urinating in inappropriate places
- Excessive urination
- Incontinence or inability to control the flow of urine
- Inability to urinate
- Producing only trickles or a small amount of urine
- Straining in pain while urinating
- Crying in the litter box
- Bloody urine
Your vet may does the necessary exams to determine the cause of the problem. If the cause is an infection or an inflammation, the vet will give antibiotics and a special diet to fight the growth of bacteria causing the infection.
