Problems in the litterbox
Just as humans may find it hard to use an unclean bathroom, cats can have problems with their washrooms, too. Maybe it isn’t washed frequently enough, isn’t easy to access, or they associate it with something scary, like the loud sounds of a nearby furnace or washing machine.
In any case, these reasons can lead to constipation, which means it could be time to reconsider the litter box or its location in your home.
No hydration leads to constipation
Constipation in cats can also be a result of them not drinking enough water. They could just be disinterested in drinking water, or there could be underlying health issues such as mouth pain or cat digestive issues that might be worth looking into.
If you’ve ruled out all health concerns, the cat constipation treatment you’re looking for could be sitting in your cat’s water bowl. It’s possible that the water inside could be stagnant or the bowl itself could be too dirty to drink out of. Consider cleaning it out more frequently, getting a bowl made out of other materials, or using a cat water fountain.
