Hello again Laura Sorry to hear your cat is uncomfortable, however I have worked out an answer for you ... 1. In the male cat these sorts of symptoms can be very serious indeed as sometimes they can quickly lead to a blockage of the urethra { The tube from the bladder to the outside. } Basically the safest thing you can do is to have him checked over by a vet at the earliest possible opportunity. 2. If he can still pass urine then you need not run to an ER vet in the middle of the night but your cat should checked over within the next 12 hours or so. Failure to pass urine would want an immediate consult with an ER vet. 3. Here is a link to an accurate article which cover what can go wrong with the bladder of male cats : LINKI hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.
