Just noticed Martin doing a really white wee instead of the normal clear. He was just out the bath and out back in his table when he done it. Never due anything in the bath. Usually poos but noticed he hasn't been eating as much as normal. Had him at the vet on Sunday just to register and get a once over. She seemed really happy with everything.

Just wondering if anyone has had the same problems? He's also sleeping a little bit more often now as well. Thought this might be due to the temperature drop of late (I live in Scotland).

If it's soft and toothpastey in texture it sounds like urates. Perfectly normal and nothing to worry about. ;)

Yes, it would only be a problem if he wasn't doing this. If it becomes powdery or gritty it's a sign of dehydration, but as Kelly says, otherwise normal :)
