That all sounds pretty good! UTIs happen sometimes, and maybe he won't get another now that y'all have found a way to express that's agreeable to all.

Hi there. Not sure if it will work as well for a cat however with my paralysed daschund I tickle and apply pressure around her ectum and below her rectum with a cold wet peice of toilet paper. This triggers her to feel where to push if she's ready to have a BM. I can always tell if she's ready to poop while doing this as her taiil will flicker and she'll start pushing on her own. May be try this while holding you cat in positionover the litterbox?
I know that this technique has worked well for two other paralysed daxis as well...
