What causes a cat to spray

There are several common causes of a cat spraying, including:

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

Urinary crystals

Low fiber diet


One of the most common causes of a cat spraying is UTI, which is caused by an infection of the bladder or the urinary tract. Cats with UTIs may have a burning or tingling sensation when they urinate, and often urinate more frequently, which can lead to a buildup of urine. This can cause an increase in the number of urine crystals, which can cause an unpleasant odor.

In addition to an infection, a cat may also experience a condition known as a cystitis, which is caused by an inflammation of the bladder. Cats may experience a burning sensation when they urinate, along with cloudy urine and frequent urination.

The bladder may also become irritated and over-dry, which can lead to a urinary tract infection. If you notice your cat is using the litter box more frequently than normal, and you’ve noticed a change in how she smells, or if she is urinating more frequently, it may be time to seek veterinary care.

Low Fiber Diet

Cats can develop urinary crystals if they have a low fiber diet. Other causes of low fiber diet include high levels of sodium in the food, which can cause crystals to form.


Cats may develop urinary crystals if they are not physically or mentally stimulated enough. This can cause cats to develop a habit of licking their paws, which can irritate the skin and lead to the formation of urinary crystals.

Diagnosis of a Cat Spraying

Your veterinarian will likely perform a complete physical examination on your cat, which may include a urinalysis, a complete blood count (CBC), kidney function tests, thyroid function tests and possibly x-rays.

If your cat is urinating frequently and spraying, a urinalysis may be used to find out if your cat has a urinary tract infection. If the urine is cloudy, your veterinarian may perform a culture to find out if your cat has a urinary tract infection.

If your cat is urinating frequently, your veterinarian may perform a cystogram, which is a special x-ray exam that uses a dye that is injected into your cat’s bladder. The dye will show up on x-rays, and your veterinarian may be able to tell if your cat has a bladder blockage, a urinary tract infection or urinary crystals.

The signs of this infection may vary depending on whether your cat has an open or closed pyometra. An open empyema occurs when the cervix opens so the infection can drain. Its most common results are vaginal discharge and excessive licking of the vaginal opening. Blood in the urine and urination outside the litter box can occur with increased urination and thirst as toxins in the uterus affect the kidneys. Read more
