What are some normal cat behaviors if they have a urinary tract infection?


Answer by  eservi01 (28)

Typical behaviors include urinating in places other than their litter box and difficulty urinating displayed through them urinating a very small amount or not at all.


Answer by  pbako (96)

Common signs of a UTI infection in cats is taking abnormally long time in the litter, with little or no pee to show for it, painful peeing (actually meowing or howling while peeing), drinking very little. Our cat would also extensively try to clean himself around the groin area after being in the litter. See a vet immediately!

The cat will make frequent litter pan visits but produce little if any urine. Sometimes urine is tinged with blood and the cat may howl if it burns.

Symptoms of a urinary tract infection in cats are, excessive water consumption, urinating frequently and in very small amounts, urinating in places they normally wouldn't, incontinence and bloody urine.

They may cry when trying to use the litter box, or urinate outside the litter box or other areas of the house. They may even stop eating and become lethargic.

Any strange behaviors in your cat should be considered important and worth checking out. Urinary tract infections will cause a cat to urinate more often. They may also urinate more slowly. Most other symptoms are hard for us to know about, such as burning while urinating.

Your cat will start to pee in other locations besides the litter box. Also, they will pee more frequently than usual. It might seem like they are in discomfort when peeing too. Possibly there will be some blood in the urine.

I would have to say if a cat has a urinary tract infection they will definitly start being outside of the litter box. They will pee all over your house.


Answer by  Pumpkin1 (201)

Cats are very tolerant to pain but may show they are having a hard time by licking their genitals and avoiding the litter box.


Answer by  smellycat22 (1129)

Urinary tract infection may cause your cat to pee outside of the litter box. The kitty might express pain while urinating (ex vocalization) and may have most frequent visit to the litter box. Blood in urine is a sure sigh of UTI. The cat might groom the genitals excessively.
