My year old birman appeared to be struggling to wee, kept jumping in and out of the two boxes trying to go but couldnt. he didnt cry or seem in pain, still eating and playing. I googled the problem and he fitted the bill for urinary problems. Chubby, male, neutered, indoor (and garden) Took him straight to the vets who couldnt find anything wrong, temperature, heart, mouth, bladder didnt feel enlarged. He just laid on the table being prodded and squeezed.
The vet said he is overweight (5.3kg) gave him pain killer and cystaid (in case its cystitis). Just got to see if he wees later on.:(

If its a crystal or infection it can cause irritation. If you've had cystitis you'll know the sensation of needing to go but not being able to.

If you can, it would be a good idea to get a sample tested - the vet can give you a katkor kit to get a sample easily.

Slightly surprised that antibiotics weren't suggested by the vet, but don't hang around if he looks in pain
