Customer Question

Hi, my male cat seems to go into the box to urinate, and he stays in that position for about 10 minutes or so. Yesteday I did look afterwards and saw that there was a little urine in the box. Otherwise, he seems ok, eating, and drinking and playing, etc.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the veterinarian can help you. What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: Colby and he is 1
JA: Is there anything else important you think the veterinarian should know about Colby?
Customer: I did just adopt him in March from the NYACC in manhattan, he had all his shots and is healthy and fixed as well.
