Well Mokkun is at the vet for over night wit ha bad urinary blockage.
Here I sit thinking what I could of done different. They have a water
fountain and a dish, EVO kibble and fancy feast pate and some fresh chicken.
He just finished a treatment of prednisone because he was chewing his belly fur.
Both him and his brother are neutered.

Any input before I hear back from the vet.

The vet just called and they have him un-blocked and are hydrating him to
flush out any backed-up stuff. No stones on the X-ray. Will have to wait
for the UA to come back and see what it is composed of.

I'm so sorry, I'm not much use here as I've not dealt with this before :-( I am glad Mokkun is unblocked and more comfortable now.

I think I have read that low-residue diets are the best when a cat is subject to urinary blockage... but not certain. It may mean a completely raw diet or a completely canned/raw diet maybe. http://www.catinfo.org/?link=urinarytracthealth seems to say that phosporus levels of the canned food is important too...

They are going to do a UA to find out what the cause was.
So when I find out then I will know what the changes need to be.
Both of the other cats are a bit upset with him not being here
tonight. I find myself looking for him so as not to step on him.

It's definitely hard when one of them has to stay at the vet... I'm sure you are all missing him lots :-(

I would imagine that your vet will suggest one of the commercially available urinary health diets, there are a range offered by Science Diet, Royal Canin and the like.

Mokkun's two house mates are more than a bit upset with him not here.
Bella been up in my lap, on my back and just action out of sorts.
Poor Tetsu tonight stated to cry his I can't find you cry. He sounds
like someone is causing him pain. So I call to him and had to go look for him.
He settled down after I picked him up and put him in the room I was in.

Well I got a call from the vet. They removed the catheter this AM.
He is still not himself and is not eating. They gave him something
to make him more interested in eating and are watching him to
see how he is peeing. I will go in later tonight and visit him.
Maybe I can get him to eat some thing.
