Urination problems are, as you may know, common among cats and there are a variety of symptoms that indicate that a cat has urinary problems. The problems causing the symptoms can vary in complexity and in some cases can actually be life threatening, so it is important that as a cat owner you are aware of the common symptoms of urinary problems.
Here are some common symptoms of urinary problems that you should be aware of:
