Stressed cat Urinary stress

As we are currently spending more time at home during the pandemic with our cat we are seeing more and more cats with feline urinary stress or feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD) signs of this are:

*straining when urinating *incontinence/loss of bladder control *urinating outside of the litter box *crying out in pain while urinating or attempting to urinate *licking themselves *reduced appetite *blood in urine

Most cats will show the above signs when they have reached their stress limit or are having a medical issue, so some earlier signs of stress might be that your cat is hiding more, is less affectionate, has changed eating habits, or is only urinating or defecating in the litter box (not both). However, some cats may show signs of urinary stress without any warning. If your cat shows signs please call us immediately.

It is important that you make sure your cat has a safe haven It allows them more control over their environment, especially for shy and timid cats. They will have the choice to hide away from things, people, animals, or events that they consider frightening.

An ideal hiding place would be quiet, dark, and away from busy areas. It is a place that cats can feel secure and safe. In homes, hiding places can be inside a closet or under the bed in a quiet room. One of the easiest and cheapest way to provide a hiding place is to place a box in a quiet location. #internationalcatday #worldcatday
