4 month old Persian kitten peeing outside the litter box
(Chennai, TN, India)
My kitten is named Smokey (male), who is 4 months old. He has no issues in eliminating feces in a litter box, but recently he has started peeing outside it.
He is not spraying or marking since he sits in a perfect squat position and pees outside the box, mostly on top of plastic bags. Sometimes he pees in a corner of the kitchen or balcony plain floor. My thoughts:
I'm sorry to hear that Smokey is having problems. Have you taken him to the vet for a diagnosis?
In my experience, quite often this is caused by a medical problem (urinary tract infections or other issues), so I would contact your veterinarian for guidance on this one.
I hope he recovers quickly.
