My cat Peter had a bladder blockage. He was crying out and his tummy was solid. He never meows unless we talk to him and then he responds. Totally out of character.
Bladder Blockage with possible infection.
Catheter with 3 days of hospitalization, medications, and specialized food.
He survived and is still a happy go-lucky boy. He received amazing care. We did take him back for another emergency visit because he was experiencing some pain after the medications were gone and they prescribed him some more for comfort (to help him pee). They recommended to keep him monitored because once they have a blockage they may have one again.
