Question Maine coon kitten urinating everywhere...

Hi, I just recently picked up a male Maine Coon kitten (Sparta). Since about the third day I got him from my breeder, he has been urinating everywhere around my house. Not in just one area specifically but, anywhere in the house. I clean the urine up as best I can and he still just goes wherever he pleases. I have only caught him in the act once. I have had him for one week now. I have two other cats and four dogs in the house. Each cat has its own litter box and they are in quiet places in the house. Each cat has its own food/water bowls. What can I do to solve this problem. Oh, and he's been to the vet and there are no physical problems with him. Thanks

Hi there,

Is Sparta neutered? Since you also have 2 other cats and 4 other dogs, it is very possible that he is marking his territory by spraying. Neutering the cat can reduce the problem.

There is a product called control zone diffuser that might be able to help.

It sprays out smell that resembles cats' facial pheromones. Cats do not spray at areas that smell like their facial pheromones.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

Have you had him checked by the vet? Bevare that he could have UTI or something else, especially since you just got him from the breeder. Many cats together can make infections go around. Better have him checked to make sure!

Do share pics

Welcome to you and Sparta !

I agree with Katrine, you need to let the vet rule out the UTI first - then if Sparta is UTI free, then it could be 'stress' problem. Cats are very territorial and need some time to adapt into a new home (including new people) ! Try Felliway Plug ins and/or Rescue Remedy to reduce his anxiety.
I have a super sensitive ktty who will easily get nervous, it's my Princess - so I always have some rescue remedy drops (prescribed by the vet) ready in the fridge. That helps a lot !

Yes, she will need those drops on many traveling occasions - even the short ones - like going to the restaurant ! (only 20 mins away)

He's only 10 weeks old...he has not been neutered. I am pretty sure he is not spraying...he is just simply urinating.

I have the Felliway Plug ins, I just need to get refills for them. I
will get those refills and hopefully that will help with the problem. I will also definitely have to take him to the vet and get him checked out.

Thanks!

I agree that this kitten needs to see the vet. It is highly likely that he has a urinary tract infection. UTIs only get worse, they do not get better without treatment, and left untreated, this kitten could have a lifetime problem possibly ending in a surgery called perineal urethrostomy.

How strange, in another forum just the other day there was someone posting about a Maine Coon kitten fresh from a breeder who had a UTI.

It would be ironic if they were from the same breeder.....and scary
