Hi sorry Figaro having this problem.

My first concern is a urinary tract infection that can cause these symptoms. Also some male cats can develop a urethral obstruction that prevents them from emptying their bladder and can be life threatening. Even if there is no blockage, this cat needs medication to help resolve the problem, so I recommend taking him to your vet as soon as possible.

Thanks for the question and I hope this information helps.

please rate my answer if you don't mind

Thank you,

Dr Eli
