Other symptoms of urinary obstruction include excessive fatigue, increased water consumption, lack of appetite, and general discomfort. Cats can show their restlessness by vocalizing or pacing. Or, since they are in pain, they may hide and avoid contact with people and other pets.
Cats with urinary issues may show unique symptoms before becoming completely obstructed. Bring your cat to the doctor if he or she has been urinating outside the litter box in the last few days or if you see blood in the urine. This can help to avoid an obstruction.
What Should You Do If Your Cat Isn’t Peeing?
If you feel your cat is having difficulty urinating on his own, you must take him to a veterinarian right once. If your regular veterinarian is closed, take your cat to the nearest open veterinary hospital, even if it means visiting an emergency clinic. Without veterinary care, an obstructed cat will likely die within 24 hours.
