A 7-month-old spayed female domestic shorthair cat was referred for lethargy, stranguria, and a fluctuant mass of varying size in the right inguinal region. Computed tomographic imaging revealed the urinary bladder partially herniated through the right inguinal canal. Primary herniorrhaphy was performed and re-placement of the urinary bladder was confirmed laparotomy.
