Cat with struvite crystalsMy 3 year old male cat had just been diagnosed with struvite ctystals. Vet says he can't metabolise his normal food and will have to have prescription food for the rest of his life or the crystals will come back. I may give him some of the prescription wet food initially but am going to change to natural diet.
Can anyone help with remedies for me to give him? Symptoms:
*(He is an indoor cat)
He sometimes urinates outside his litter box anywhere in the house since the crystals (probably because he associates litter tray with pain poor boy)
- the 'inappropriate' urination is on soft things - rug, pile of bubblewrap, towel on floor but also in bath and near fire hearth (so possibly near smell of fresh air coming through drain and down chimney)
* Licks the urinary opening frequently
* sometimes goes to his tray but won't urinate
*Licks urinary opening straight after urinating
'sometimes miaows (different to his usual miaow)after he's urinated
*seems to be sleeping more than usual
(His urine is his normal colour)
Hope somebody can help me.

although he is aggressive to our other cat (he chases and tries to bite her) he is very friendly to us. Very territorial and wants us to himself. He is easily scared of any different noises or new things.
He is a rescue cat - at first would pinch human food, wolf down his food and eat anything, but now very choosey.
He likes affection and strokes but will give you a swipe when he's had enough.
Use to bite (not hard, but not play bite either) and scratch a lot when he first came to live with us but now only a little bit if he wants to be left alone.
Likes playing with us and on his own.
