Our cat is about 3 years old, rough estimate by the vet. We picked him up from a rescue last year where they said he was found on the street (untagged and unregistered) so he may not have been a house cat from birth. He was neutered by the shelter's vet and is otherwise totally fine.
He's hefty, true. He likes food and has lost 1lb since come home to us, we feed him according to the vet recommendations and he's been found to be healthy for his size. We were advised not to worry TOO much about the weight, and to let him slowly drop a few pounds. He drinks plenty of water has never made a mess outside the realm of his box. Lately though he's occasionally been peeing on the steps of it versus climbing all the way in, it only happens once every couple weeks or so but it's tedious to clean when it pools at the bottom and it smells somethin' fierce. He still drops the kids off in the sandbox every time. Anyone have any suggestions?? I'm not sure how to stop him from doing this.
