Q: Cat Incontinence?

My cat Fathom is 2, and he already knows how to use the litterbox, but I frequently see him with a wet spot around his....private areas. We have considered diapers, but that seems unnecessary. When we lie down for bed, I notice a little wet spot where he sleeps...Any suggestions? I don't know what's going on!

This happens to my 17 year old cat Teddy but she is elderly and has leakage problems but I have no idea why this would happen to a younger cat I would take him to the vet to be checked out it could be a bladder infection which Teddy and my younger 8 year old cat Shorty have both had before and this is what we where finding when they had bladder infections good luck!

You'll want to see a vet to check for UTI, kidney or bladder infection. At two years old, incontinence shouldn't be an issue, but as this is the biggest killer in cats, it's important to have those things checked out the second something isn't right.
