Strong smelling urine.

Species: Cat

Age: 6-12 months

Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

It sounds like DJ is starting to come into maturity. A male cat will hit puberty any time after 6 months of age. When this happens you will start to notice a very strong smell to the urine.

The only cure for this is to have him neutered.
