1. Constant Meowing

If your cat is more vocal than usual, especially when using the litter box, this could be a sign of a urinary health issue. Consult your veterinarian if the behavior persists.

2. Inappropriate Urination

If your cat misses the litter box, it could be more than just a behavioral issue. Urinary illness can prevent your cat from making it to the litter box in time. And if they’ve already suffered from urinary problems, they may relate the pain to their litterbox and choose to go elsewhere.

3. Increased Litter Box Visits

Cat’s suffering from a urinary illness may constantly feel like they have to use the litter box. If their visits have noticeably increased, this is a sign of discomfort that you should address with your veterinarian.

4. Decreased Appetite

Sometimes cats show signs of discomfort that seem completely unrelated to urinary pain. If your cat isn’t eating and seems withdrawn at mealtime, don’t ignore it. This behavior could be a sign of urinary health issue.
