Hello, this is Dr. Linda. I hope I can help with your question today.I am so sorry for your concerns about Tiger. I would say, that if this is an unusual thing for Tiger to do, lying on the bathroom floor, then he is trying to communicate to you that he is not feeing well. You say he makes a noise when he has a bowel movement & that certainly might indicate some pain & discomfort. Has he urinated since this has all begun? Male cats can become obstructed in their urinary tract & this can turn serious very quickly. Tiger may also feel unwell from an infection, especially if he spends a lot of time outdoors. But even if he is strickly an indoor cat, things can happen.So if you are concerned, especially if this has been going on for a day or so, it is time to have him examined by your veterinarian. Any change in behavior or attitude is an indication that something may be amiss with Tiger.I hope this makes sense & has given you he information you required. Please et me know if you have any further questions or concerns about Tiger.Thank you.
