Sos is my cat constipated
A couple of years ago, a delightful senior cat adopted us.
Psycho, decided to move in with us and we never looked back. He has now shredded our furniture!
Sadly, a couple of weeks ago something happened to him outside, don't know what, probably hit by a car and his ribcage seems sore.
He had never used his litter tray before and I have noticed that he hardly ever passes stool. The first week indoors he had not passed stool for 3 days and I gave him a laxative which did the trick. He has not been passing stool since and that was 7 days ago!
He had been on a raw diet for a a month and his fur has never been so beautiful before.
He does not look bloated, nor does he feel uncomfortable when touching the stomach. It actually feels quite soft! He does not respond to laxatives, nor does his anus look swollen like the last time when I gave him a laxative. He loves his food, even during the night he demands to be fed
Basically I don't know what is normal for him, should I panic?
Please anyone, would appreciate some imput.
