Customer Question
He is lying on...

He is lying on his side and twitching his belly. He's been spraying alot. He just urinated in his box then I found him down on his side

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 cat's name and age?

Barkley...10 months old

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Barkley?

Barkles...this just happened. He's been spraying alot recently
