My 7 year old neutered cat has started spraying? We have 3 other cats. What can be wrong with him?
We have 4 cats, 2 males, 2 females. Males are 7 years and females 4 years. All are indoor cats. All are spayed and neautered. Males are Siamese and females are "Mutts" (sweet as ever!). One of our men (our "alpha" male), just from spraying all over the house, especially on wooden furniture. He always used the litter and we had no problem with him before. It is a mystery, and disturbing. Our home is very clean and there is nothing that has changed to cause this problem. There is no evidence of a urinary tract infection or other problem health. Someone else had this problem and has it been solved? I want to enjoy every person has to offer help before take a trip to the vet! Thank you!
if it has not been to the vet, I do not exclude the possibility UTI or kidney infection. I ask him checked before assuming a behavior problem. Has there been any fights with other cats lately? This can be cause. if an outdoor cat who scored outside your house and you stepped into the brand and the smell in the house … This could cause the behavior. Have you had someone else dog or a cat visit lately? It is a cause of spraying as well. but Please take him to the vet and rule out infection in the first place. cats are great to hide the pain and illness.
