• My cat seems to be constipated. He keeps going to al the litter boxes but nothing comes out. He tries to go against the wall too and he gets rigid and doesn’t want to be touched. Is there something I can do to ease the constipation without going to the vet?

    Hi Christina,
    I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian immediately if you have not already done so. Going to the litter box with nothing coming out is very concerning for a urinary blockage which can be life threatening. This can be caused by constipation but that is not seen as often. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of his symptoms and the treatment that he needs after they have examined him.
