Q. My cat keeps going to the litter box but cannot seem to pee. He peed on my husband this morning, which he has never done before. What might be wrong
DR. CHRISTIE LONG, D.V.M., C.V.A.
A. Your cat may be experiencing a urinary blockage. This happens to young cats, typically males. Their urethra clogs with a thick substance that's like mucous. It's part of a syndrome known as Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease.
He can be treated, however at this point he's experiencing a crisis and he needs immediate veterinary care. His urethra may need to be unblocked and a urinary catheter placed until the inflammation resolves and he can urinate on his own again. Seek veterinary care immediately.
