Please need help with my cat

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello, I'm new here. I've only had cats a few years now. I've got a male cat that showed up at my house as a kitten about 5 years ago. I then took in a stray female. Butter & Sweetie. Well they had babies before I got them to the vet ( now all have been for that little visit) so I now have little BJ. I've got the 3 of them and 2 dogs. I moved all of us a year ago a few months after BJ was born and am now having problems with Butter. He climbs up on me and just pees on me for no reason. He's done this several times and at first I thought he was mad at me but seems like he does it more when I go out of my way to spend one on one time with him. Is he trying to mark me or what is going on? I'm at my witts end. Can anyone help me???

Ok, Butter is the male, and he is neutered right? If he is neutered and he is still peeing, you probably should take him to the vet to make sure that there are no medical problems.

It could be caused by the move. How long have you been in your new home. Has it just started recently? If you've lived there for a while with no problems I would say it is a medical issue. Please take your kitty to the vet and have him looked at.

Good luck, and btw...welcome to the catsite!

Welcome to TCS. I agree with calico, get him checked by the vet.

he may be trying to tell you something is wrong (i.e. a urinary type infection or kidney stones)...i would consider taking him to the vet. each time i had a cat do something like this there was usually something they were trying to tell me.

Thank you so much for replying. I'm taking him to the vet next week. He started this a few months after the move. He doesn't do it very often but I will feel better once I have him checked out. I'm just lost when it comes to my cats, I was very alergic growing up and couldn't even be in the same room as one so I'm kind of learning as I go. I rescued him from the coyotes that had him cornered on my carport. Now I can't imagine my life without the three of them. I love them sooo much. I was a nervous wreck all night when I took them in to be fixed. I know Butter sounds like a strange name but he loves to eat butter. I was worried but read somewhere that it helps with hairballs so... I let him eat a little but keep him limited. I'm just so glad I found this site and can read the topics and maybe learn a little more about my little babies.
I'll let you all know how it goes with the vet. Thank you again!

try to get a urine sample. Have a little cup close to you at all times so if he pees you can catch some. wrap it with saran rap, or put the lid on, and keep it in the fridge till you go. keep getting a fresh one every day you can cause the fresher the better, but have one in the fridge ready to go. Otherwise they will stick a needle in his bladder to get a sample. It will hurt him, and cost you $$.

Excuse me - they don't stick needles into their bladders, but gently massage them until they can get a little urine out. Don't make people afraid to go to the vet for no reason!

Ahh, they do stick a needle in the bladder to get a urine sample, and I am not making people afraid to go to the vet for no reason, I made a good suggestion that she take a sample with her, something that people don't normally think of. Perhaps it is not intended, but your post feels like a personal attack.

I second that...they do stick a needle in their bladder sometimes if they can't get the urine sample any other way. I saw the vet take a sample from one of my cats this way, but he didn't seem to react very much to it.

Um, yes they do, they don't have to though, that is one way to get urine out though. It is called a cystocentesis.

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you all. Lots going on. Turns out it was a UTI and after medication he's doing better. Most of his hair has come back in and the constant licking has changed to normal grooming.
He's only tinkled on me once and that was because I had held another cat and he smelled it on me and had to remark me. Other than that it's been going really good and he's back to using the litter box.

These are great news! I'm glad things are working out for you and Butter now
