This guy, apparently…..
If you ask him, he’ll gladly tell you all about cats and how they make his life miserable. How they steal his bed, his toys and his treats, and especially how they try to cuddle with him even though he has a reputation to uphold and has absolutely no desire to be seen getting cozy with a cat. He will also waste no time to rant about that time the cat started peeing on his bed…..
Inappropriate urination is unfortunately a common problem in cats and it is the number one reason cats are surrendered to a shelter. There are many contributing factors that can cause a cat to go outside of their litter box: not enough litter boxes, dirty litter box, improper placement of the box, changes to their routine or in their surroundings, or health problems.
In our case we knew the litter box wasn’t the issue. We have one litter box per cat plus an extra box, the boxes are in a private area and they are cleaned twice daily. A visit to the vet confirmed presence of crystals in the urine. After resolving the crystal issue, we decided to switch to a preventative diet formula that would maintain our feline’s urinary tract health. After all, a healthy bladder starts with the right balance of vital nutrients. There are a number of brands that carry formulas geared towards urinary health, however, Hill’s, is the only one that addresses two main problems in adult cats in one product: urinary health and hairball control.
Hill’s Urinary & Hairball Control formula provides precisely balanced nutrition to help support the health of the whole urinary system, from kidneys to bladder, with:
- Optimal level of magnesium
- Natural fiber comfortably reduces hairballs
- Clinically proven antioxidant benefits
- No artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives
And don’t let Rocco fool you, despite all his complaining, he loves his feline brother and when he thinks nobody is watching, he’ll even let him cuddle!
