Hi everyone,

Very recently, Lucky has been peeing in the morning/afternoon and he has been pooping at night. It's almost 3am right now and he hasn't pooed at all. And he hasn't been able to finish his food recently as well. Around noon, I gave him half a cup of food and it's still in his bowl. As usual, I'm worried and I want to make sure if this is something serious before I take him to the vet.

UPDATE: He just pooed. I still would like to know why he leaves a little bit of food the next day and poos at night.

If he is leaving only a little food, it just means he has had enough to eat and doesn't want any more. If he is not eating at all, this is a serious health problem and he should be taken to the vet right away.

Cats usually poop every 24-36 hours. If he goes more than 2 full days without a bowel movement, call the vet. If his poops are excessively large, or very dry and hard, or if he squats for a long time, or vomits while pooping, or avoids the litter box to poop, he may have a constipation problem. Adding canned food to his diet will be good for him.

If you ever seeing him straining to urinate, or leaving small dots of urine frequently in the box, this is an emergency and he should be take to the vet even if it is the middle of the night. A male cat can die within 24 hours if he can't pee.

I know you take good care of Lucky and watch him closely. I do urge you to get him on some canned food every day.

Ever since I got Lucky, his poo has been dry and hard. I don't know if that's a problem. His pee is normal, though. I'm going to give him half of a can of wet food when I get home from work. Do you suggest that I should give him 1/2 of a can or 3/4? However, I give him canned food as a treat more than a meal.
