Male cat takes a long time to urinate?
My cat seems to be taking forever when going for a wee. Over the last couple of days I have noticed when my cat is going for a wee that he can be stooping as if going for up 5 minutes.
Editor's note: Anytime a cat, especially a male, appears to be straining, experiencing pain or discomfort, has failed attempts, or takes an extended time to urinate is cause for concern. This could indicate a urinary tract infection (UTI) or some other issue such as stones or crystals.
In male cats, urinary tract blockage can occur. This is a life threatening condition and needs immediate treatment by a veterinarian.
Please call your veterinarian and describe the situation.
