Full Answer

The amount of urine produced and eliminated depends on the amount of water that the cat drinks, whether the cat's diet contains canned food and other factors. Pet owners are advised to take note of their cat's normal routine. Any detected changes in a cat's typical urination patterns possibly warrant a veterinarian's examination. If a cat is not urinating, a blockage could exist in the urethra. This condition is potentially fatal in male cats within a very short time period.

  • Q:

    How can you find out how old your cat is?

    A:

    A cat's age can be estimated by examining its teeth, coat and eyes. Teeth are especially helpful for determining a feline's age, since the presence or absence of baby teeth helps narrow down an age range. Older cats sometimes display more tartar build-up, but if they regularly see a vet for cleaning, this is less reliable. Senior cats can develop white or gray patches of fur.
