Hey /an/, my cat keeps squatting everywhere but not peeing. He has managed to pee a little in the box though, but just a little.
He is also licking his genitals excessively and sitting in ways that don't put pressure on them.
How likely do you think this will turn out to be something minor like a UT infection vs. something serious like kidney stones?
I've got a vet appointment for him later today, but I'm a bit of a poorfag.
It'll probably take all of my disposable cash(and probably some of my utility bill money), but I should be able to afford the medicine for a UT infection. But there is simply no way I'd be able to pull together the $1000+ surgery bill if it is a stone.
Also, is a UT infection communicable? I've got three other cats to worry about as well.

I was sat in my apartment playing World of Warcraft last night, when I felt something moving under my foot. I looked down, saw a snake wriggling under my sock, and initially freaked out (as you do) - but it's actually a baby slow worm.
Now I normally hate Snakes, but slow worms aren't snakes and have a lot of characteristics that make them better pets (totally harmless, non biting, long life (up to 50 years)). I've checked out the legality of it and so long as I'm not intending to breed/sell I can keep it.
I would release it but I live in an urban area (no idea how it got here) - and it should already be hibernating but is still very active, so since I already had a spare tank and UV lights/heat mats, I've decided to keep it.
The only other reptile I'm keeping at the moment is my Blue Tongued Skink, and the head of the slow worm is almost identical, complete with tiny eyelids that make it cuter than your average snake. It has golden scales, definitely a female from the markings.
Has anyone got any experience taking care of Slow Worms? I know their diet consists of small insects, slugs and snails, but this one is too small to manage anything like that now, so I'm going to get some cricket hatchlings and small mealworms and see how it goes.

I ran a cat "shelter" once.
I took in stray cats that lived in my neighborhood, and I would feed them, water them, worm them, and tame them. Then I would take them to a professional shelter. They all got adopted to good homes. Each. And. Every. Last. One.
I made sure to do everything as professionally as I could, from literbox cleaning to preparing milk-replacer for orphaned kittens, and I even made sure to get help and advice from vetenarians to ensure the cats I looked after recieved top-quality care.
Then on Wednesday, November 16, 2011, my then-best friend killed the project's mascot, a cat I had raised since he was a kitten, by drowning him in his mother's swimming pool, just for the sake of doing it. Afterwards, he took Shiver's body, cut it up, and put each piece in his mom's garbage disposal. His mother told my Mom, "I'm not sure what happened, but your cat was playing near our pool, and fell in and drowned." This would have been impossible because a tarp had been placed over the pool to keep leaves from falling into it. The person who had killed my cat ripped the tarp out of its place to be able to drown my cat in the pool water.
