Hello, we have a...

Hello, we have a cat in our house, he is spraying yellowish, odorless, greasy fluid, it sometime seems like it has sugar in it. Do you have any idea what this could be?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the cat's name and age?

His name is Kaspar (we are from Iceland) and is 4 years old.

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

He moved here with his owner nearly one year ago, there are a lot of cats in the neighbourhood, maybe that makes him anxious? Sometimes he just wants to sleep but other days he

Where is he spraying this fluid?

Can you share pictures of it?

Does it have an odor?

Is Kaspar neutered?

Is this happening on vertical or horizontal surfaces?

Hello :)
He is spraying it on furnitures near the floor or on the floor. It does not have an odor, or at least not a smelly one. Kaspar is neutered. I don't have any pictures now but I will send when this happens next time.

I watched him spray on the sofa today and the fluid was clear but with a little yellow tone.
Cat Vet: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 8 months ago

This really sounds like urine but I'd like to see the greasiness you're referring to and hopefully what appears to be sugar, as well. My concern is that this may well be a sign of a urinary tract infection and crystals in the urine. If so, he's going to need to see your vet for a urinalysis and treatment. Chances are your vet will want to switch him to a urinary care diet to help prevent infections/crystals and such if this is diagnosed. The diet change may be long term to prevent further issues as cats who have urinary crystals are prone to urinary blockage which can be life-threatening. Prevention is the best approach.

Post the pictures when you have them, please. I'll be on the lookout for them.

You helped us to come to what we believe is a better next step in Jack's treatment, and hopefully have saved us $800!! Thanks again!

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
