My Cat uses the litter A LOT!!!!

My cat, Milo, is a year old and neutered. He is in the litter box anywhere between 2-5 times in an hour. Every time he is in there its about 5 minutes at a time. He is an orange tabby. I have a Siamese, Sophie, that is about 6 months old. She doesn't use the litter box nearly as much or as long. I'm wondering if this is normal or if there could be an issue. I had a male cat before and this never seemed to be an issue! Thank you in advance for any advice thrown my way!!!!!

Is he urinating that often or pooping? How long has this been going on for?

He needs to see a vet, this is most likely a urinary tract infection.

Hi,

I strongly agree with Leslie- this is not normal and he shouldn't take 5 minutes over it. Got to a vets asap to get this checked out as it probably is very painful for him- cats try to hide pain and are rather unfortunately very sucessfull at this.

regards,

Christine

? So he's pooing AND peeing 2-5 times an hour? 2-5 times a day would be more normal.

Watch him while he's on the loo- does it seem like it's painfull for him or if he might be blocked up? How long has he had this? And what do you feed him?
