Strong smelling urine.

Species: Cat
Breed: unsure
Age: 6-12 months
i have a male cat an recently his urine has become very strong, he hasnt been done is there a problem?




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.
