Bloody Urine
I have an 8 year cat that has been very healthy for the most part. A couple days ago I notice blood in his urine. Any help with this would be appreciated. He doesnt seem to be in any discomfort and still runs around 100 miles an hour like always. One thing i have noticed and the fact he is never outside and always been an indoor cat and is fixed. He whines at the back door alot these days??? He eats normal and drinks normal.....He's an Iam's cat from the day I got him at 6 weeks. The blood seems to be substantial enough the I am very concerned.

Anytime there is blood in the urine of an animal especially a male (smaller urethra than female) it's time for a vet visit ASAP!

Possibilities can include Urinary Tract Infection, Urinary/Bladder Crystals or Stones or something more serious.

Thankyou I'm was planning on calling in the morning.. ..This cat hates Vet visits and is not declawed due to a dog in our family. he's very hard to handle at the Vets but it'll have to be done.[/QUOTE]

The feliway spray in the cage before going to the vet can often help calm some cats in these cases. Good luck!
