By motion do you mean joint movement or bowel movement?

The latter for he seems constipated and has started peeing all over the house even on my lap. The little basard. Behind the TV and everywhere. Any advice?

All the cat haters will only say 'kill the cat' or words to that effect......is he an old cat Bren ?...seems he may have a bladder infection....have you considered taking him to the vet ?...the poor thing seems in distress because cats are normally fastidious about where they do their motions...get him down the vet Bren.

Sometimes male cats pee everywhere just to mark their territory, and nothing but death cures them of that.  Alternatively, he might have a urinary tract infection.  They tend to urinate all over when they do.  Then again, if he's emotionally upset about something, ie a change in location or a new girl/boyfriend, he might be expressing his jealousy that way.

It turns out that my cat has bladder stones and needs cathatarisation each time he need to urinate. Hopefully he will recover.

Sorry to hear it.  Usually they maintain them on a special diet afterwards.  Male cats, especially if they've been "fixed", tend to have urinary tract problems.

Yes he was "fixed" and he passed away early Sydney Sunday morning. 5 am. He was a beautiful cat. His kidneys shut down a few days after he stopped urinating and the toxin built up while he was in the vet's care.

Oh, so sorry.  They couldn't do any surgery to remove the stones?  They do in people, but I don't know about cats.
