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.
My neutered male cat was diagnosed with a bladder infection a couple months back. He had been doing a lot of straining in the litter box, peeing outside the litterbox, and also had bloody urine for a couple days. My vet had put him on clavamox for 10 days, and we discontinued dry cat food and switched him to all wet food diet with extra water mixed in.
He has no issues with straining anymore, and appears to be able to pee just fine...only that rather than doing it inside his litter box, he's doing it EVERYWHERE else. But he's doing it like marking; VERTICAL SURFACES. Walls, furniture, bookshelves, cabinets, wood, glass, you name it. I had to throw away $80 worth of books and just noticed today he got some video game cases. It's out of control. I keep him confined to my room and I'm trying to clean everything he pees on with enzyme cleaner but it's not helping. He's still peeing EVERYWHERE. What can I do to curb it? Do I need to confine him to a crate with his litterbox 24/7?
