red panda eating bamboo

feline elimination behavior, lack of

My cat won't poop. :-(


He won't eat either, which hasn't happened before.

I've tried pumpkin, metamucil, lactulose (but only the small dose the vet recommended, not the really large dose), petromalt, catnip, brushing, and rocking him.

He is a little more lethargic than usual (he's extremely lazy in general) but still responsive to attention in the usual ways.

I have an enema that is supposed to be safe for cats, but he gets understandably cranky about people sticking things up his butt, so I don't know if it would be safe for me to administer it...
