Urine Marking Is Just a Cat's Way of Staking His Territory

    Though cats sometimes use urine to mark their claim, frequent urination outside the litterbox can signal a serious health problem, like a urinary tract infection, bladder stones or even diabetes or renal failure.  Sometimes inappropriate urination can signal that your cat is suffering from anxiety.  If your cat goes outside his litterbox once or twice, it's worth a call to the vet to see if you should be concerned.  But if he's having frequent "accidents", making numerous trips to the litterbox, howling or meowing while urinating, seems unable to urinate or has any blood in the urine, take him to your veterinarian right away.
