Urinating in house.

Species: Cat
Breed: shorthair
Age: 6-12 months
Bella has started urinating in places other than her litter box. She has not been spayed. Thanking you in advance.




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

Most likely, having Bella spayed will fix this problem. Hormones can cause all sorts of behavioral problems in cats including urinating in inappropriate places.

There are other possibilities that you can read about here, but ultimately, spaying Bella will probably fix this problem!
