My cat is having trouble going #2. He is peeping but hasn’t pooped in a few days. I am starting to get worried and I’m wondering if I just take him to the vet. I would love to be able to help him until then though (or possible fix the issue). Any tips?

I would recommend bringing your cat to the veterinarian. If he hasn’t had a bowel movement in a few days this can easily make him feel sick. There can be many reasons for constipation in cats which can include dehydration to systemic disease (ie kidney issues). Once evaluated your veterinarian can prescribe medication or suggest over the counter remedies to help your cat.
