If your kitty is relieving himself outside his litter box, there’s a reason.
Find out what’s behind the behavior by using your investigative skills.
According to Suite101.com, cats typically eliminate outside their boxes for one of three reasons:
- The cat may be suffering from a medical issue that is causing him to pee outside of the litter box.
- The cat may be marking his territory. This is more commonly known as urine spraying or urine marking.
- The cat may be avoiding the litter box and choosing a more desirable area or substrate to use when he pees.
In order to fix the problem, you must first discover what’s causing it.
