You've had an amazing weekend away. As your front door opens, ammonia-drenched air slaps you in the face like a ninja from nowhere. Pungent. Biting. Revolting. You scream in terror while you scramble to open a window. Yikes! Your favorite feline sprayed your walls, your sofa and your house. And we're not talking about Fabreeze.
While your cat may be the most low-maintenance family member, you should know his plumbing parts are pretty finicky. Feline kidneys are genetically weak. Additionally, cats are prone to dehydration. These combined issues make for a dangerous effect in the kidneys, bladder, and entire urinary system. The illness is called by many names including Urinary Tract Infection (UTI), Feline Urologic Syndrome (FUS), Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD), Feline Idiopathic Cystitis and Feline Interstitial Cystitis. The condition affects cats of all ages, it's found most often in middle-aged and over-weight cats. Also, cats that have experienced one UTI are likely to be affected by more episodes later in life.
First, let's look at some causes of UTIs in cats:
- stress in the home (talk about having all the family at home with your children)
A cat in distress will spray as a result of both big and small changes in his environment. This could include everything from swapping houses to entertaining a new guest. Your cat may use spraying as a means to ease his discomfort or tension around the situation.
