Poor Shams. How old is he now?
Has he ever blocked and needed to go to the vet to unblock him?

You should be able to feel it at the very back of his abdomen. If he is standing facing away from you, you can put her hands either side of his tummy ans push in, then gently pull back and see if you can feel something round and firm at the back. If it's the size of a mandarin orange it's ok. If it's painful and the size of a large apple he may be blocked.
If he's not painful and blocked I would give him anti inflammatory for a few days to settle things down again.
There is likely something stressing him, this is the most common cause of these cystitis cases in cats. It will tend to recur until we find what the stressor is and fix it.
