Would he allow you to feel his abdomen?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
He is meowing more at me last couple days but not dure
Expert:  Kelly Wright replied 6 months ago.

If you can come up from behind him and place both hands on either side of his abdomen and feel all the way back towards his back legs and up into his pelvic area. If he is NOT passing urine his bladder will be very large and hard like a rock

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Ok give me a few minutes
Expert:  Kelly Wright replied 6 months ago.

If he is a large cat you may have to use some pressure. If he is painful he may not allow you to do this. DOn’t get bit though!

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Doesn't feel hard and he happy I'm petting him so not painful
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Rolled over and wanted more
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Lol
Expert:  Kelly Wright replied 6 months ago.

Good! A blocked cat would be very aggrivated and wouldn’t probably allow it. Stress, like being outdoors can bring on inflammation of the bladder called cystitis. Cat’s actually get a cystitis called idiopathic cystitis (idiopathic=we don’t know what causes it). If this is the cause of his symptoms, as opposed to a true UTI (bacteria) it could be self limiting and go away in a few days. However, it is painful like an infection. I would recommend taking him in for a urinalysis to check for bacteria and crystals tomorrow.

The GOOD news is, I don’t think he needs to go to ER

Expert:  Kelly Wright replied 6 months ago.

I bet he is a real cutie!
