Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi there. My name is***** to hear that Gotham is unwell. I will do my best to help with your question. First I have a few questions to help me better understand your situation.Has Gotham been able to produce any urine or faeces while sitting in the litter box?Does he appear to be straining, crying, or licking his bottom area? Any blood in his urine?Is he desexed?
Okay. I am quite concerned that your cat may have a urinary obstruction, which is quite a common condition in young male cats. My own cat had the same issue only last year.It is the urethra in the penis that becomes blocked with a plug of either urinary crystals or inflammatory cells, or a combination of both. It stops urine from being passed and leads to kidney damage and eventually bladder rupture, followed by sudden death if untreated.I would urge you to get him to your local vet ASAP (as in now), so that they can sedate and unblock him.
