My cat was just licking s penis, I've never seen m do that

Customer Question

My cat was just licking his penis, I've never seen him do that before. I haven't been home all day so I don't know if he's been acting weird since then, and there appears to be urine in his litter box, but it's the crystallie litter so I don't know if the pee looks any different then usual. Is he ok? Should I take him to the emergency vet?

Hello - I am Dr. Matt - I would be glad to help you with your question.

Does he seem uncomfortable when you squeeze his belly?

Has he been licking at his penis area multiple times since you have been home?

If you can place him in his litter pan and see if he tries to urinate. If he tries to squat, look to see if he is producing any urine. Let me know what happens.

Well he had a little pee and he didn't seem uncomfortable when I pressed on his belly. I got panicky though and took him to the vet on-call. She initially thought he had a blockage but later came back to say that he was fine though he had some bacteria and red and white blood cells in his urine. She's sent me home with medication and pain relevers. Thank you for the help anyways.

You are welcome - glad to hear that he is not blocked.
