I recently adopted a cat at the local human society, I brought him home and he was very friendly, he ate, he did poop and pee on the floor( but i figured that was out of nerves) the over the next couple of days I noticed he had not been going to the bathroom at all, then one night he woke me up because he was crying in pain, shaking, and throwing up trying to poop, the next day I got him to the vet, and they could not find anything wrong, they could not even feel a backup in stool. They even ran blood work and found nothing wrong. He is an older cat, they told me 8 but the vet says it's possible he could be older. It's been a month and in all it's happened again twice. Is it possible that he is just an older cat with constipation? and is there anything I can give him that can help him? He normally eats wet food, and dry food. He also drinks water. I have read a lot on cat constipation and he has no other symptoms besides the not being able to go and throwing up after trying so hard. He has an appetite and on most days is a very outgoing cat. If anyone can give me any advice or suggestions I would greatly appreciate it! ThanksView Thread
