Urinary blockage in cats
Urinary blockage is one of the most serious and frightening illnesses for your cat. In my experience male cats seems to be more prone to it and it's a terrible thing to see them desperately trying to pee and not being able to. In the past I had two male cats that were both afflicted and looking back on it I see that stress was probably a contributing factor. Neither of them felt relaxed about doing their business in the garden because of a noisy neighbour so they hung on which created really concentrated pee so that crystals form in the the urinary tract leading to a blockage. It's a very painful thing for your cat so a very quick response is vital otherwise your cat could die, it's as simple as that. Take your cat to the vet immediately if you see him or her straining to pee.
