Default I was surfing the Internet for the subject "cats standing up to urinate" and found yo

Just because I haven't seen something doesn't mean it doesn't happen. I still stand by the fact it is unusual for a cat to be completely standing straight when they urinate but I guess I should clarify what I meant before. In essence, all cats are standing when they urinate since they aren't sitting or lying down. Most cats will curve/aim their rear down toward the ground to go to the bathroom (your cat even does this by elevating her legs on the litter box). Most cats don't stand and urinate with all four legs on a level surface without bending their knees or standing exclusively on their hind legs. I've also had a cat that showed the same behavior in the box as your cat does. Placing her feet on the edge while urinating could be due to the fact that she doesn't want to get anything on her but it could also be that she does not like the litter or something about the litter box. Some cats that have an aversion to something in the box will minimize how much of the litter they are actually in contact with. Of course, it may be normal for your girl but it is certainly something to keep an eye on. Thanks for writing in and thanks for keeping me in check!
