Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello there , I am DrD , thank you for the question . I am sorry to hear that Tybee is giving you such a difficult times but this could be a very easy to deal situation if you have not taken him to your vet already for this condition.
There are several medical conditions that can lead a cat to inappropriate urination and these should be ruled out so as not to get on the wrong track. The cat will need to be examined and get some testing. Conditions to rule out in part depend on the age of the cat as young adult cats tend to get different diseases than do senior cats but, briefly, here are some conditions that should be checked out:
Of special note is the condition currently referred to as feline idiopathic cystitis. This condition amounts to physical manifestations of anxiety where the cat not only may urinate inappropriately but also strains painfully in the litter box, and produces bloody urine. A male cat can actually obstruct his urinary tract, creating a medical emergency. This is a common condition in young adult cats but is uncommon in older cats. Please see the link above for more details on this complex condition.
As mentioned, your veterinarian should evaluate your cat medically before you conclude that the problem is behavioral and you embark on a long-term behavioral approach.
I hope this helps. please do not hesitate to ask if you have more questions. Thank you
