cat: keeps going in and out of his litter box every few minutes

This answer was rated:

My cat keeps going in and out of his litter box every few minutes, could he be having a bladder problem or infection he is 4 years old

Yes, your cat can definitely be having a bladder or urinary problem, like an infection or stones, and this is causing his frequent trips to the litterbox, but he's producing nothing, or only a few drops. Urinary blockages are more common in male cats, due to their narrow urethras, so please bring your cat to the nearest ER vet center, now, for treatment. If he's blocked, this is a medical emergency!

I hope all will be well, once you have your cat diagnosed and treated!
