This is a life threatening emergency in cats that is most commonly seen in males, but can also occur in females.  If you notice ANY of the following signs in your cat he/she may be blocked or becoming blocked:

1 - your cat is in and out of the litterpan frequently

2 - urine spotting on furniture, you, the floor or urinating outside the litterpan

3 - straining to urinate and/or vocalizing when trying to do so

4 - producing small amounts or no urine when voiding

5 - blood in the urine or blood spots around the house

Ho! Ho! HOLD the Tinsel!!
