Getting a urine sample??
Ok, so the vet gave us this little tiny bottle of black broken up plastic in the hopes that simba will think its litter. (the bottle was the size of a urine sample bottle, it was in there. it looks like absolutely nothing in the litterbox.)
Well, its been out since 3:30, its now nearly 11, and he hasnt peed in it. I think theres not enough of the things for it to feel like litter.... hes gone in adn checked it out... even went in with all 4 feet just a bit ago, but still nothing. surely in like 8 hours hes got to pee at least somewhat.
how have you guys gotten urine samples in the past? i hate to lock him in a room with it - he didnt do anything wrong. the normal litter is up where only Boo can jump. The vet said some cats just cant get a sample, but in those cats they do yet another 2 week round of pills. problem with that is he hasnt been falling for the pill in the wet cat food anymore. I even tried a little piece of tuna last night and still no. so id really rather get the sample and make sure hes clear rather then cram pills down his throat for another 3.5 weeks instead of only another 1.5.
can anyone offer any advice? I washed out the litterbox, but ive done that before and they both went in the normla litter in the fresh clean litterbox. now that this stuff is in it, he doesnt care.
we also dont wnat to continue to confuse Boo and have her start not knowing where to go and peeing in the house.
(i know we are supposed to have like 15 litterboxes, but we only have one, and have never had any going out of the litter issues besides when simba blocked).
