Neutered male cat spraying inside of litterbox
My 7 year old neutered tomcat has always had excellent litterbox habits. So I was surprised when I started finding big puddles of cat pee by his litterbox.
It turns out though, that he is actually peeing inside the litterbox - it is just not staying in there. It is a large covered litterbox, with latches on the sides, and I had become careless about fastening the latches. Making sure the latches are fastened has helped, but still, pee is leaking out the back of the box.
I can replace the box, and/or put plastic in between the wall and the box, but I am wondering if it seems odd that he would start doing this now - could it indicate any sort of problem? He has had UTI/blockage problems in the past, but is not showing any signs of it now.
