Answer

Hi – thanks for your email. You wrote asking - How often is it normal for a cat to urinate a day?

The answer is – it depends. Some cats will urinate a couple times a day – others more frequently depending on much water intake they get (through drinking or canned food).

I'd say most cats urinate two to four times per day. Some cats will have increased volumes of urine (polyuria) or urinate more frequently than normal (Pollikuira). Both of these are abnormal.

A couple articles that might be helpful to you are Polyuria in cats (increased urine production) and Pollakiura in Cats (increased urine frequency).

Best of luck!

Dr. Debra
