    Hello, I have a 4-year-old cat and he goes a lot to the litter box without urinating sometimes or just a few drops at the moment without blood, he eats well the problem is that he does not drink much water, I could give him water with a syringe so that he would drink more and urinate better thanks

      Hi Jacqueline.
      You most likely have a urine infection. My advice is that you take him to the vet as infections can put the animal at risk.
      You can give him water with a syringe without a needle, or cans of wet food, but it is important to see a professional.
