Feline Urination Troubles

Is your cat spraying?  Or is he or she just peeing in the wrong place?  Is it a medical problem, or a behaviour problem? 

If the cat is painful, not eating, or straining without any urine coming out, it is important to see a veterinarian right away.  If you are in any doubt, call your local veterinary office.  If your cat is blocked and cannot urinate, this is an EMERGENCY.
