Let’s talk about at what age do cats spray.And we’re talking about spraying, we’re talking about urination and spraying behavior is atype of marking behavior in cats, especially males. Typically that doesn’t happen untilthey’re reaching close to sexual maturity which may be as early as 5 to 6 months ofage, it could be later as far as 10 to 12 months of age for some cats. Spraying behavioris where they will go to the litter box typically or against some type of furniture, raise thetail, backup against it and spray that urine out and generally quiver their tail. And whatthey’re doing is putting their scent on that area as a territorial mechanism so any othercats that come in that area will notice that.
Now spraying in an adult cat, in any cat,can sometimes actually be associated with the problem and so always check with yourveterinarian and make sure that your cat doesn’t have a urinary tract infectionor crystals in the urine or some sort of urinary physical problem that they’re spraying from.But typically cats will start spraying if they think they need to mark their territoryabout 5 to 6 months of age. Right around sexual maturity.
