Hi, thanks for your question. From what I understand, your 23 year old cat is not urinating in the litterbox (but is pooping there) and has a watery eye. Glad to hear his appetite is good.

Has he had any other unusual symptoms in the last week or so? Is he taking any medications?

So, he is pooping outside the box?

Any vomiting or diarrhea?
