Urinary Incontinence in Cats. Problems with the bladder often are caused by an impaired bladder or from some kind of obstruction in the bladder. Disorders of this type are referred to as incontinence. Incontinence is most likely to affect middle-aged to older cats and large cat breeds.

If you suspect your cat has FLUTD or a cat urinary tract infection, watch for the following symptoms:

  1. Inability to urinate.
  2. Loss of bladder control.
  3. Urinating small amounts.
  4. Urinating more than usual or in inappropriate settings.
  5. Avoidance or fear of litter box.
  6. Strong ammonia odor in urine.
