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, 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.

    If this is a new behavior and he did not JUST get fixed recently, then I would be concerned about a health issue. Maybe he has a UTI or other urinary blockage. Please call the vet to have him checked out. Cats will often pee in inappropriate places to let you know there is a problem. Otherwise, it may be behavioral and you need to think about anything that may have changed that is upsetting him. New pets? New people? Did you move things around in the house? Change litter brands? Change food? Are there animals outside the window that are upsetting him?

    I agree that he should be seen ASAP by a vet, especially since you said that it looks as if he's forcing it out. Males are more prone to urinary blockage. He could have an urinary tract infection also.
