What should I do with a cat that is constipated?

Get both hands around it's head, firmly hold it's ass down to the ground, then squeeze down to the but, and the shit should fly out!!
Best thing for a cat is cod liver oil. It will clear any potential hair ball causing blockage...and they happen to like it, so it's not difficult to get them to take it. Put it in a teaspoon and let them lick it out.

Hope that helps.
