Charlie is a male cat who had a urinary blockage on a Sunday and when his family took him to the ER they said he needed surgery right away. The family couldn’t cover this large unexpected expense so they took him home to figure out what to do. A friend told them about us and they rushed him to us on a Monday and we were able to unblock him and save his life. Urinary blockage is a painful and life-threatening condition that typically affects male cats. If your male cat has urinary blockage, it means their urethra — the tube that drains urine from the bladder to the penis and out of the body — is blocked by inflammatory material. When the urethra is blocked and urine can’t exit the body, the bladder becomes overfilled. If the blockage goes on too long, the kidneys may start to swell and become damaged, leaving the bladder to potentially rupture or tear.
