Cats/cat poops in litterbox but does not pee


I have a 3 yr old male cat we got him when he was almost one from a shelter and got him fixed, he always poops in his litterbox, but will never pee and i havent been able to find his pee spot, but i seen him spraying in our closet the other day, i love him soo much and dont want to get rid of him but how do i get him to pee in the litter box?

This is a common issue which I am contacted about almost every day. I have therefore written several pages about this issue to try and cover all the possible causes and also how to try and prevent it.

Please see the following two web pages for more details.



best wishes Kate
