My Springer Spaniel has done the same thing since she was a puppy, and the vets don't have an answer for her, either. They gave me cranberry supplements which didn't work and then suggested surgery that might, or might not, work. I suspect that your kitty has the same problem. It's just a birth defect. It bothers us more than it bothers them. My Springer will pee a whole puddle when she's laying down and often I have to wash her "down there" because being white back there it turns yellow. It comes down to whether you want to take the chance and go to the expense of the surgery if it's even viable for a cat. Other than that, it's just something, if you love your animal, that you have to deal with.
