Get Your Cat Care Questions Answered By Cat Vets ASAP
Damn! Ok, here we go again.
No other problems, but he does vomit occasionally. However, he's done that for years. I believe it only occurs when he eats dry food too fast or too much. Since it's so sporatic and there's no blood in it I didn't figure it was a medical issue. I guess you can tell me different. He usually only vomits with dry food, not his tuna I feed him twice a day. The dry food is grazing food.
Same litter box, same litter. When he did it the first time a couple days ago, I checked the boxes, there are four of them, and they needed cleaning but not too bad. So I scooped them. I then scooped them the next night as well, but he pee'd for a second time on my bed about an hour after I scooped them last night. So today I cleaned the entire area, floor, litter boxes, everything, and replaced with all new litter. The boxes have had the same level of cleanliness for months, so I didn't see that being the problem, but I was just covering my bases by being thorough.
He does not go outside ever. There is a stray cat in the area, but he's been around for years (I actually buy him food, my parents sort of adopted him years ago, so I still feed him, but he never comes inside.) They have sniffed each other through the screen door, but not recently.
Hope this helps
Thanks for the response, but it pretty much leaves me in the same boat. I already planned to visit the vet to explore urinary infections, so that's a given, but since I didn't mention it I understand why you suggested it and I thank you.
The problem I have which has not been answered is HOW he's doing it? Meaning, no other urinations anywhere else in the house except the two incidents, ON MY BED, RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME. Not during the day when I'm not in my bedroom, but when I'm in the bed. And he knows it's wrong cuz as soon as he does it and see's me start to react he bolts. I think he remembers me punishing him for it when he did it a couple years ago.
I do have to make one suggestion. I would not recommend Natures Miracle. I have used it and it sucks, and my pet store agrees with me. they've had many complaints that it didn't work. It really did not remove the odor. I have had the best luck with Unique Natural Products, their web site is uniquemm.com. It really seems to remove any trace of the smell. Just a suggestion.
FYI, on the previous problem, I held off on bringing him to the vet, I wanted to see how he reacted to me totally cleaning the litter box area and boxes. He had pee'd on the bed the previous 2 nites, but the last two nights since I really cleaned the area he has not pee'd on the bed, so I'm "waiting and seeing" before bringing him to the vet. I don't even know how they would put test for a uti unless they put in a catheter or something. Anyway, so far so good. As for the second question, I mentioned that he's thrown up for years periodically, and it seems like it's when he eats dry food too fast or too much. Could this be a more serious problem? Or is this normal? Again, he's done it for years and he seems by all accounts to be a very healthy cat.
