According to the All Feline Hospital, a cat can easily hold its urine for up to 48 hours. However, most cats urinate three to five times daily, according to VetInfo.
The amount of urine produced and eliminated depends on the amount of water that the cat drinks, whether the cat's diet contains canned food and other factors. Pet owners are advised to take note of their cat's normal routine. Any detected changes in a cat's typical urination patterns possibly warrant a veterinarian's examination. If a cat is not urinating, a blockage could exist in the urethra. This condition is potentially fatal in male cats within a very short time period.
