Cat Health Questions? Ask a Cat Vet for Answers ASAP.
Hi there, welcome to JustAnswer!
What is your kitty's name?
That's a cool name - I like it :) Has Tiki ever had any episodes like this before?
once in a while... not for a long time...
How is his attitude?
trying to lick his but
Have you seen him urinate at all recently?
no... he did have crystals in his uranary tract..years ago
OK - based on what you've told me I'm very concerned that your kitty may actually be having difficulty urinating (rather than constipation/difficulty pooping)
Kitties with a history of urinary issues in the past are very likely to have urinary issues again
Kitties who have a urinary obstruction often stand in the box and strain to urinate, sometimes they cry as well
This is one of the few situations in veterinary medicine that is a true emergency
If he cannot urinate, he cannot clear important toxins from his body and he can become deathly ill very quicly
If she is sitting in the box crying, trying to pee, but nothing is coming out, I strongly recommend you seek emergency care for him ASAP
Other common signs of urinary obstruction are depression, vomiting, and excess licking of the penis
he is doing that..... i don't thing there are any vets open now
Another common symptom is tenseness or tenderness or discomfort when you touch his belly or try to pick him up by his belly
is there anything i could do now?
Check your phone book or internet veterinary listings for a veterinarian that is open for emergencies
Call your local veterinarian and listen to the message on their answering machine - it should give you a phone number of a local emergency vet
This could very well be a life-threatening situation for Tiki
If he has a urinary obstruction, there is nothing you can do at home except keep him in a quiet area undisturbed and hope that it works itself out - but I would not recommend this - I'm very worried based on what you've described
i'll get working on it
Good luck - I hope Tiki does well
