Why is my cat peeing in the house outside the litter box?

Did you know that one of the #1 reasons pet cats are euthanized is for bad litter box behavior? That’s why we at Newport Harbor Animal Hospital take litter box issues VERY seriously!
Top reasons for peeing outside the litterbox:
1.  Urinary tract infection
2.  Crystals or stones in the urinary bladder
3.  Cystitis (inflammation in the bladder)
4.  Behavior
This is why it’s important to see us at NHAH to help with which problem is affecting your cat. We will do a urine test to look for signs of infection and inflammation.

He had fallen to sleep on the engine block of the family car and was caught in the fan belt when the car was started that morning.
