’Kidney stones’ in cats is not often an easily diagnosable problem. It is usually the reason behind urethra stones and bladder stones; which often cause urinary retention.
Sometimes you see your cat urinating, but a smaller amount than usual, or you notice blood in the urine. This means that your cat is exhibiting urethra stones or bladder stones and then you should take it to the vet to examine the cat and give the suitable type of medicine.
Cats with complete obstruction will seem depressed, silent, not able to move or walk properly as their back will bow a little, downwards, in attempt to relieve the bladder pain; they may also vomit and the most apparent symptom is reaching to their litter box all the time where they stay for long, yet not urinating.
Cats with this case try to urinate on cold floors, on the beds or in very unusual places. A person of no experience in cats, or has less interaction with the cat and less familiar to its needs, will not understand the problem easily. That’s why you should watch your cat’s daily habits and needs…to be as quick as possible in emergencies.
