Get­ting to the bot­tom of why your cat is elim­i­nat­ing out­side of the box

Modern Cat - - Editor's Letter -

“My furry fam­ily mem­ber, Henry, will be 18 years old this Novem­ber. Henry is blind in one eye and has cataracts in both eyes. He has arthri­tis and moves a bit faster than a tur­tle on a stroll, but he knows his way around home very well. His hear­ing has di­min­ished but he can hear a can of cat food be­ing opened or the bag of dry food be­ing poured. He likes to snug­gle, com­mu­ni­cate, and he is an ex­cel­lent com­pan­ion to me, es­pe­cially after the re­cent loss of my par­ents. [Our vet and I con­cluded that it is] pri­mar­ily due to age that Henry fre­quently uri­nates just out­side of his lit­ter box. I sin­cerely rec­om­mend to own­ers of furry fam­ily mem­bers, at the first no­tice of your pets elim­i­na­tion prob­lem, please re­main pa­tient for kitty and your­self, stay kind and lov­ing as you al­ways are to your pet, and make the call to your vet for an ap­point­ment. The an­swer could be as sim­ple as age.— Jen­nifer
