I would like to share a simple way to give AC vinegar. My cat would not drink it or eat food containing it. I put 2.5 ml AC and 2.5ml water in a 5 ml syringe. Squirt onto her sides and then she licks it all off immediately. Is simple way to get cat to ingest AC vinegar. Hope this tip helps : )

I've been mixing cranberry extract in my cats wet food and they've been eating it. It has normalized my blocked cat's litter box habits! 1/4 tsp
My cat didn't urinate all day. It has been sparse for a few days but I am concerned. Has anyone found a remedy for not urinating? I ordered kidney support but who knows if will help and how long it will take to get.

This site has been so helpful to me numerous times so I wanted to give back and share some information that was incredibly helpful to my cat. I got him when he was about three years old from the humane society. He has always suffered from periodic constipation so when I saw his straining last week that's what I thought he was experiencing. I gave him a supplement that assists with that. But two days later he continued to strain and it was in inappropriate places. Then we saw some very concentrated urine.
He is currently seven and had never had urinary issues so I never suspected it. After I saw the concentrated urine I gave him another supplement I have called Tinkle Tonic made by Animal Essentials. By that time the poor guy was so uncomfortable getting him to eat or drink was challenging. He began to have blood in what little urine he could get out. He loves goats milk so I would place the supplement in that. Money is very tight for me so spending hundreds of dollars at the vet was not my first option.
I got online and started doing some research on different homeopathics that may help. I have always had good results using them. I came across the remedy cantharis which assists with burning and decreased flow. I ordered the 30C strength and also ordered some drops from Homeopet (feline UTI) which had the cantharis in it as well as additional helpful remedies.
The drops state they can be put in food or water. Normally with homeopathic pellets, you wouldn't put them in food or drink because it contaminates them. If you have a docile cat then by all means put them directly in the side of the cat's mouth. My cat however will slash me to pieces. If he even sees a syringe or medicine bottle he runs. So I had no choice but to place both drops and pellets in his food or water. I believe he may have passed a stone.
Within three or four days he was back to his normal self and bouncing off of the walls. He's very high energy and it was all back and then some! No more straining, peeing in inappropriate places, or blood in the urine. I was so relieved for him and me. I felt so helpless knowing my baby was in pain. I just wanted to share with others. Last time I took a cat to the vet for this it was over $700 and that was fourteen years ago so I can only imagine what it would be now. I hope this information can help someone else.

Male tabby urinary issues.
In my experience, after caring for many rescue cats , these male cats need homemade food, raw but soaked meat in perox. Solution to prevent tapeworm. They need in addition dandelion tea which they like to slurp either in water and mixed into the food or given by syringe. Best to eliminate dry food. The tea gives them all the needed vitamins and some minerals. Just dig dandelions, wash them well using the entire plant, simmer in water til the plant is totally wilted, add a little more time for the roots. This herb attends to urinary issues, even healing severe kidney problems. In difficult cases you could look into MMS. Part of the urinary problem is often emotional, for example a cat wants to go outdoors but is an indoor cat or other emotional causes.
The dandelion water will have residue at the bottom but it can be poured off. It is an excellent remedy, also for people as I can well attest, especially diabetes. Give for about three weeks at a time and sporadically repeat. I hope all goes well. Keep your money for good food. God's pharmacy is not about extracting large sums, but service to fellow beings. Please stay away from polluted areas when collecting herbs.
