Why do cats pee outside the litter?

All cats, male or female, neutered or not, will mark out their territory with urine spraying. Normally this is rare and discrete. But sometimes cats peeing outside of the box becomes visible and very annoying: it has even been known for cats to spray their owner's bed or duvet!

This means that the cat is not feeling fully content.

Cat peeing can be a reaction to:

  • Recent changes at home:
    • New home, new furniture
    • New cat, new dog
    • New family member, baby, …

  • Conflict with other cats:
    • Competition for food or water bowl
    • Competition for access to litter box

It can also be caused by a medical issue. So if your cat pees or sprays indoors, consider visiting the vet.
Older cats especially need regular vet check ups.
