This is a photograph of Trigger — a five year old male neutered kitty that was quite miserable because he had crystals that formed in his bladder that blocked his urethra — like a plug — so he couldn’t pee

Trigger. . .

His owner noticed he was very uncomfortable and going in and out of the litterbox in distress. We had to anesthetize him and alleviate his discomfort by placing a urinary catheter. He then received fluids and a special diet to prevent recurrence of the crystals in his urine. He is a MUCH relieved and happy cat now!
