It took me a long time to figure out how to express. He is a boy cat and apparently boys are harder because they have a long urethra. Finally I saw a different vet and they explained that with boys, you have to find the bladder and then gently move it up (in the direction of their head) for about 1/2 inch and then give it a squeeze. Moving it forward a 1/2 inch straigtens out the urethra so it is not kinked up and therefore the stream can come out without trouble or discomfort.

In both cases I enfolded the bladder in my hand entirely, I did not press it against anything. This may depend on whether your cat is slim and the size of your hand. I know I have seen other people describe other methods. My method is kind of like squeezing the squeeze ball on a blood pressure cuff.
