Customer Question
My 5 month old...

My 5 month old male kitten peed on the bed today has never gone anywhere but his litter box is a trip to the vet needed?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the kitten's name?

Franklin he's an angel ... very happy don't understand why he would do that

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the kitten?

No he's a shelter cat born at the shelter then home with me had a few medical issues as a kitten ear mites and an intestinal problem that needed antibodies but has been in perfect health since

If you think that Franklin might have needed to go and been unable to make it to the box in time, you can certainly wait and watch. If this happens again there's a very strong potential that he likely has a urinary tract infection and having an examination and treatment performed by your vet will be ideal. Your vet will likely collect a urinalysis and prescribe antibiotics. Usually within 3-5 days of starting antibiotics the symptoms fully resolve. In some cases a switch of diet may be needed as crystals are present in the urine and may cause a urinary blockage in the future.
