According to Bartges, feline idiopathic cystitis is an example of a vexing animal health issue that can give us a peek into our own psychology.
* Cats who suffer from feline idiopathic cystitis to rule out bacteriuria
Dr Danielle Gunn-Moore, senior lecturer in feline medicine, commented: "Feline bladder disease is frustrating for vets and owners, as most cases have no apparent cause and are categorised (pardon the pun) as feline idiopathic cystitis.
In fact, stress has been implicated in the development of feline idiopathic cystitis. A cat who is unhappy about a new housemate or who is suffering from osteoarthritis may avoid using his litter box, causing strain on his urinary tract and resulting in urinating outside of the box.
She said: 'Feline bladder disease is frustrating for vets and owners, as most cases have no apparent cause, and are categorised as feline idiopathic cystitis.
The most common urinary problem, especially in cats under 10 years of age, is Feline Idiopathic Cystitis or FIC.
The Feline Health Center at Cornell notes similarities between feline idiopathic cystitis (FIC)--the most common diagnosis in cats with lower urinary tract signs--and a bladder disorder affecting humans called interstitial cystitis.
Cystitis--sometimes referred to as Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD)--is an inflammation of the urinary bladder that can have a number of causes including formation of crystals or stones (urolithiasis), matrix accumulation, neoplasia, urinary tract infection, feline idiopathic cystitis. In many cases it results from the formation of tiny mineral crystals that can eventually accumulate and become stones that irritate the inside of the bladder and, if large enough, may interfere with the passage of urine from an affected cat's bladder.
