Kidney stones or bladder stones? I would suggest apple cider vinegar therapy with bladder stones, but kidney stones are another issue. And, the apple cider vinegar really should be organic unfiltered, but do the best you can. Real cranberry juice can be helpful (not the sugared, Ocean Spray stuff), but usually... More

you need to give him to a friend or something that CAN take care of him. if you cannot afford to take care of a pet, you shouldnt have one.

Mabey you can call your vet and explain to them what's going on. They might have something you can do at home to help your cat.

YOu have two options. 1) force your cat to die a horrible painful death 2) TAKE HIM TO THE VET!
Answered By: Lisa A - 3/21/2009
He needs a vet; there are no home remedies. He is in pain, and it can kill him. Call your shelter, Humane Society, or vet school. Maybe, they can help you or know of someone who can. Would you let a friend or family member suffer?

if you can't afford to properly take care of your cat, you should not have one period. This sounds serious and he is probably in a lot of pain, you should be ashamed of yourself!

people can be stupid on this site. just report them but also ignore them. most vets will take care of your cat if you call and let them know. you can also call the spca or humane society and they will help too. he does need regular meds, or he can die. i use to have a male cat that got it all the time. usually a...

If the cat is a male, it is not kidney stones, it's urinary tract infection. Proteins have formed crystals in its bladder. Females can have this too, but it is rarer. These crystals lodge in the tract preventing urination. If there is a litter box, see if the feces have turned orange. If they are, it is too late, the... More

You have so many answers that I didn't even bother to read them all. Today is Saturday, late P.M., and tomorrow is Sunday. By the time you would be able to get him to the vet it would be too late anyway. I'm sorry. The way to avoid it the next time would be to feed him a better grade of cat food. GL

It is something he has to have a catheter for or he will die

Call your vet and see if what you are doing is ok. Your vet may be able to help over the phone. Or you can get him in the vet and put it on a credit card or a payment plan.

There are no herbal remedies to fix this. Getting the cat treated is imperative, as being blocked means the cat can die in 48 hours when his kidneys shut down. The longer the blockage goes, the more damage is done to the bladder and kidneys, and that's not reversable... More
