Question
Hello.  As the subject line indicates, I have a cat (11 year old mix-breed neutered male) that is in good health (and weight) but has recently seemed to become constipated.  He is an indoor cat and eats dry cat food.  He seems to have periodic constipation.  Any home remedies I can try?  I've tried soft/moist food with a bit of olive oil but it hasn't seemed to help.  Thanks.
