Hi. My name is Gemma Denimore. I have three cats that I love dearly. One thing I've learned about cats is that you have to pay attention to their behavior. Any change in a cat's behavior could indicate that they aren't feeling well. By the time a cat shows unmistakable signs of being ill, they are often very sick. Urinary tract blockages are fairly common in cats, especially males. These blockages can also be very serious if not treated in a timely manner. One of my cats recently spent a week at our vets office recuperating from a blockage. The only way I knew he wasn't feeling well was he was reacting to my petting him differently than usual. I’m going to explain more about unusual behaviors that point towards urinary blockages, the importance of contacting your veterinarian, and some of the procedures used to cure the problem.
