My cat is 14 months old. Just this week he has started to lick his crotch
region more than usual. From there it got worse and he now claws in that
area, as if he has an itch. He was neutered near birth, and this is the
first time I have ever even seen his penis. I can't tell if this is because
of an itch, or a newfound love of doing whatever it is he's doing.
Excessive licking of the genital area in cats is a symptom of urinary
tract infection. Another one is urinating outside the box, but not
always of course. You might get him checked by a vet.
I sure would. That isn't normal and can't be good. Has he peed? He could be
partially blocked and blocking in males is life threatening.
