|If it helps any, when Prowler was going thru his urinary issues, my vet said if they are blocked, you will feel, around their bladder area, kinda between that, and their tummy, what feels like there is a golf ball in there.
One of my friends, knows how to express the bladder, which I just couldn't grasp how to do that.
If they have bladder/urinary issues, what you are looking for, is if they get in and out of the box, scratch, sit, cry, get in and out, in and out, if they pee anywhere else other than the box, they associate the box, with the pain, and if this is accompianed by throwing up.
Prowler went thru this, and I knew he wasn't blocked, no golf ball, took him in, his urine was too concentrated. I had switched him from wet twice a day, to once a day, money, my vet said you *have* to give him wet, twice a day, mixed with water, so its real soupy. He is a crystal kitty and prone to bladder issues, I did, no more bladder issues. The urine if too concentrated, burns the bladder walls, and they think they have to do, even if they don't.
Hope this helps.
