Frequent potty accidents are often an important indication that your cat needs some help. Many cat owners have to deal with their pet’s potty accidents at one time or another. In fact, it is often the number one complaint among cat parents.
A basic step in addressing the problem is taking your pet to your veterinarian so it can be thoroughly checked and examined. If your pet is issued a clean bill of health by your veterinarian, the behavior may be caused by social or environmental stressors; taking a closer look at your pet’s immediate environment might help in identifying the problem.
Feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD) is an important cause of potty accidents committed by cats. Other potential health issues that can lead to house soiling include kidney disease, arthritis, diabetes, hyperthyroidism, and disorders affecting the muscles or nerves that might prevent your cat from getting to the litter box in time. For more information, set an appointment with your vet.
