Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
I have a male cat, about 8 years old, indoor only, who has started to pee in various places outside of the litter box. But, the way he does it looks more like spraying. He doesn't squat like a cat normally does when peeing, but will back up to something, remaining standing and shimmy his tail back and forth quickly, which appears to be spraying behaviour. The problem is, is that he releases a lot of urine, rather than a spurt like, as I understand it, is common with spraying.
He is neutered, when he was a kitten.
We live in a basement apartment and there is an outdoor cat that comes around regularly and sprays the windows. Possible trigger?
So, I assume he is peeing, but the way he does it looks more like spraying, but being neutered young I find it hard to believe he is spraying.
