I just know that they back up to a vertical object, lift and twitch their
tails, and spritz some urine marking it. Just like the "big" cats do.

It is urine sprayed on vertical surfaces.

Thanks, Gail. But doesn't the male (and maybe the female?) back up to

spray so
how does the urine spray in that direction instead of frontwards?

Does anyone know from where cats, both male and female, spray from? I know
they're not spraying urine, so where does the spray come from? Thanks.


They _are_ spraying urine. To be sesquipedalian about it cats are
retromingus, which means they pee backwards. They also do a lot
of tail vibrating at the same time, which means to me that they like to
do it. A cat can really hose down the object he is marking.
