Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 25 years experience and would be happy work with you.
When was the last time that you saw her pass urine or stool?
Is she straining at all in the litterbox or just walking in and out?
Cats that are frequenting the litter box can have a urinary tract infection, but can also be experiencing discomfort for other reasons including anal gland disorders, GI disorders and other urinary tract disorders besides infection (sterile inflammation of the bladder, or bladder stones.) It can be deceiving to use warm ears as a measure of an elevated body temperature. I have been fooled myself by this.
I would suggest that you monitor her litterbox habits and if this continues, have her examined by your vet who will be able to check a urine sample and/or stool sample as well as her anal glands to better rule out the cause.
I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please reply so I can clarify for you.
