My male cat keeps licking his genitals

by Jennifer
(New jersey)

I have four cats. Three boys one girl. One of my boy cats keeps going to the liter box and i noticed him licking his genitals alot and keeping his legs open. And he has also thrown up a couple times. He has not been crying or seem to be in extreme pain. But he does look uncomfortable. Please i need help, don't know what to do.

It could be that he has a urinary infection or even a possible blockage which could be causing him some discomfort. Male cats are more prone to urinary infections.

please find more information about urinary infections and blockages here on my site

best wishes kate
