Too frequent or abundant elimination
You should be alarmed if the elimination is too frequent, but in very small amounts, or too rare with intervals up to or more than 4 days. You can tell that a pet is hurting while doing its business, if its back is hunched up and it meows loudly. Most often, this indicates problems with the urinary system - cystitis, tumors, or kidney stone disease. The latter is the most common among domestic cats. According to statistics, every fourth cat suffers from this condition. It can be caused by strong drafts, lack of hydration, water rich in salts (for example, tap water), or too much dry food. It is also worth getting your cat checked for diabetes.
