My cat is squatting repeatedly in his litter tray as though he's trying to urinate, but he doesn’t seem able to go. What can I do?Right, this one is serious - see a vet as an emergency. Cystitis in people is often an unpleasant stinging sensation when they urinate, but in a male cat it can be life-threatening.
Cystitis? Really? How?Cystitis simply means inflammation of the bladder. The lining of the bladder becomes inflamed and painful, but in cats the urethra sometimes gets blocked as well.
