Priapism (persistent and painful erection) is an uncommon disorder in cats and dogs. This report describes the clinical and pathological features of seven cases of priapism in cats. Six of the cases were Siamese cats, and in four of them the priapism developed after attempted mating with an oestrus female, despite three of them having been neutered. Five cats were treated by perineal urethrotomy, which was successful in four. In five of the six amputated specimens, thrombosis of the corpus cavenosum was evident.
