Ask a Cat Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. You're through to Dr Chris, a Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you shortly.
Sorry to hear this. Could you tell me if he has been able to pass urine today?
OK, any straining as if he was trying to pass urine?
OK well the concern he is lack of urination in a cat of his age could indicate a blockage of his urethra preventing him from urinating, this could become serious and is often mistaken for constipation.
I would suggest to monitor his urination carefully over the next 13 hours. If there is no sign of urination by tomorrow morning then he must be checked urgently by your vet to rule out an obstruction. True constipation in a cat of his age is possible but not overly common.
I hope that answers your question? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice.
Yes that is possible, feeding a mainly dry diet can be a risk factor as can being overweight and stress
You're welcome. Please feel free to keep me updated.
