No spraying/peeing outside at all. The schedule can't be fixed but when weather is good and someones home, he gets an hour or more outside.

Tons of flavoured water yesterday and he ended up peeing 5 times on objects last night. Smelled like it was diluted so possibly, but still peeing?

Creatinine was normal, BUN slightly elevated. Vet said kidneys are most likely fine.

Ratio is roughly correct (some days more bone etc) but weekly, it is correct. There is definitely skin, fat, tendons, etc all included.
