Cat Health > cat vomitting

**call already into vet. waiting for call back**

Hey everyone!
Goo has vomited a few times today. The first time we saw him puke was about 4 hours after he ate his breakfast. He seemed to be okay- sleeping normal, pacing normal, meowing at as like usual. We gave him his dinner- a much smaller portion. and a few hours later he ended up puking again.

He did end up eating some stuff out of the kitchen drain- there was a small amount of coffee grounds left behind (less than a 1/4 tsp). Is there anything I can do in the meantime to help? Is ingesting a small amount of coffee grounds potentially life threatening? Its been about 8 hrs since he first puked.

Any insight or thoughts from other kitty owners would be greatly appreciated. As noted above- we did call the vet and are waiting for a call back. Thank you!

Cats and a Clean Home > Remove cat smell

Hello!
We are trying to sell our home but our basement smells like cat. We have cleaned the basement and have used an enzyme spray. After cleaning, we are still getting reports back that you can smell cat/animals. Is there anything else we can do to get rid of this smell? Thank you!

Cat Health > Cat spraying frequently- Please help!

Hello Everyone!
I have posted a few times before (I think) about one of our cats spraying but we were unable to determine which one until we saw him spray/mark twice the other day. This has been going on for over a year at this point. We are in a multi-cat house so it was difficult to determine which cat it was spraying. The greatest change would be the addition of our son which was about 16 months ago.

When we first noticed the spraying had started we contacted our vet who gave us some suggestions that might help since we couldn't figure out who was spraying. We tried the individual time, more play time, cleaning the marked areas w/ enzyme cleaner, etc.

Is there an enzyme cleaner that works better than others that is safe for pets/kids? Is there one that works on wood floors and wood furniture?

To make things even more challenging, we are planning a move from a 1200 sq ft house to a 3000 sq ft house. Is there anything we can do to make this transition less stressful for all of the kitties? Is there anything we can do to stop/decrease the spraying behavior? We just brought the sprayer into the vet but unfortunetly the vet we saw isn't one who is familiar with our kitties. I plan on putting in a call to the other one tomorrow. I am thinking about medication but I don't know if its effective, etc. Please help us!!

Cross-posted in behavior forum but I think this forum has more interaction. Thank you!

Cat Health > Unhappy Bottom

Pieces seems to be doing okay! Bottom is still red and icky looking but she is acting herself. I felt her belly and she tolerated it and didn't scream in pain so I am assuming she isn't holding urine/stool. Its hard to say if she is peeing/pooping as normal as we have other cats! I will post tomorrow after the vets!

Cat Health > Unhappy Bottom

Hello!
A few days ago my husband saw Pieces rubbing her bum on the floor in the basement. After about 10-15 seconds she stopped and we didn't think much of it. The next morning he noticed her licking excessively and also rubbing her bum on the floor. He looked at the area and just noticed some redness and nothing else. The next morning I noticed something dangling from her bum which I thought was poop but husband further inspected and saw that it was a mat which he cut off. She cleaned the area and we gave her one of her calming meds (antihistamine) since she has a history of cleaning to the point of skin removal. A day or so has passed and the excessive cleaning and bum rubbing has gone away. We looked at her bum this morning and saw that it was still irritated and something red was sticking out. We are planning on calling the vet first thing tomorrow morning but my question is- is this an emergency situation where she should be brought to the emergency vet? She currently does not appear to be in distress or any pain. Thank you!

Cat Health > Cat peeing outside of litter box

I've tried responding the last two days and it hasn't gone through! Hopefully it works this time. I have no idea whats going on. I have to call the vet again. One of the cats is do for his annual. All the cats are neutered. We haven't seen any new pee spots in the last few days which is good. Not sure if its because the litter boxes were just changed, the antibiotics helped Goo or if the three new litter boxes helped. So frustrating. You think its one thing and its not! I will definitely come back if the pee starts again or we hear more from the vet! Thank you everyone!!

Cat Health > Cat peeing outside of litter box

And the plot thickens! I put some smaller litter boxes down that are uncovered along with the other litter boxes. We saw a few cats sniff them to check them out and then saw our dominant male cat climb into one and start what we thought was peeing in it! We were shocked when we watched him spray our wall! I'm guessing he is marking the litter boxes and so the other cat(s) are peeing elsewhere. We haven't found any poop outside of the litter box. Would we find it outside as well if the kitties didn't want to use a marked litter box? This is our first experience with this! Any help would be great!

Thank you for the information! I appreciate it! Can you please change the title to say "cat peeing outside of litter box?" Thank you!! I am going to give our vet a call tomorrow to touch base. Hopefully the matter is fixed with the antibiotics. Any suggestions on a cleaner that gets rid of the smell? Do you know of any cleaners that are natural/safe for pets/kids to be near?

Hello everyone! I wish I could edit the title!
We have a kitty or maybe more than one who is peeing outside of the litter box. We have five and five litter boxes. This is a fairly recent issue. We observed goo (history of blockage and possible crystals) running from one litter box to the next and spending 10-25 seconds in each without producing anything. We took him to the vet. Vet gave antibiotics in case of a uti but said his bladder was empty. The pee has decreased but is still happening. All kitties are acting like themselves. Is there a way that we can test to see which cat is peeing? Isolating kitties is not possible at this time. I read somewhere that there is a product that you can give the cats that changes the color of the pee that you can see with a black light. I don't know what else to do and want to rule out any medical issues and quickly!!!!!
