when my boy cat did that I guess he was straining and I didn’t notice the straining. Ended up being a UTI. That can also lead to a blockage that can be deadly. When my girl cat did that I took her to the emergency room thinking she had UTI. All labs were normal. Had a follow up with her dr who also took poo sample. Normal. It ended up being stress. At the time she did that I was working 6 months in DC and they had rodent issues where pest control was constantly in and out and she was chasing the mice away and the dog upstairs was noise and non stop barking. All that worked her nerves so much that she was just going in the litterbox and sniffing it. Walking out and kept doing it over and over. Not sure if the mice Was getting into her litter.Hey! I've noticed that my adorable furball, Sune, has been making frequent visits to the litter box lately. While Sune's health is my top priority, I'm curious to know if this behavior is normal for cats. Any experienced cat owners out there who can shed some light on this?
Sometimes he can go 5 times in a row but he doesn't seem to have any problems to do his needs, it's just he's going in and out multiple times.
Any insights would be amazing!
first thing I would do if I were you I’d take the cat to the dr for complete blood panel and stool sample. I was told by the dr that the stool sample can be few hours old. Just can’t be rock hard.
