Q. Had my cat for 6months now amd for the past week he has started peeing around the house deliberately what can I do
DR. JENNIFER LADD, DVM
A. I would be concerned about urinary crystals. Especially in an unfettered male cat. Urinary crystals form in an irregular urine pH, and they form stones that can plug the urethra, and grow inside the bladder. This is the most common cause of inappropriate urination and can cause an emergency if your cat can no longer urinate. My recommendation would be to take him to a vet so they can collect a urine sample. It will be evaluated for crystals, and then if they are not present, can be evaluated for less likely causes such as bacteria.
