Peeing blood!

hi everyone,
the problem is that my cat, Tizzy hasnt been to the toilet in a few days (from what i have seen anyway) but i keep seeing her in the toilet position trying really hard. on about 3 occasions, we have found bits of blood that have come out - not thick and not much of it either. And thats all she has leaked.
We are certainly hoping to take her to the vet asap but i was wondering if anyone had any advice or suggestions that might help her go to the toilet. or if anyone knew of any possibilities that might be causing this.
Thanks so so much for your help,
Leanne

You need to get your kitty to the vet ASAP. this sounds like a serious urinary problem. and i don't mean to make you upset, but if you fail to get your cat to emergency services, there is a high possibilty she may die if you don't. please take her asap if possible. please keep up updated on her condition...

i know this must be scary for you, it would literally freak me out if i saw blood anywhere on my cat, esp. coming from the urine. how old is she? has she been fixed? is she indoor/outdoor or both? do you feed her dry or wet food? How long has this been going on?

peeing blood

I am currently doing work experience at the vets so i will be sure to book her in tomorrow when i go in.
She is about 12 or 13 years old at the moment and is fixed. She lives both outdoors and indoors - she has access to both all the time. She onl eats dry food - this is because she has always had to live on dry food as she gets sick on wet food. We only noticed a bit of blood yesterday and didnt realise she wasnt going to the toilet until today,
I have found this website and i think this is what they problem is, although i know i cant be certain until i take her to the vets.

I am willing to bet that FLUTD is what she has. Luckily it's in a female cat, therefore less of a life threatening situation, whereas with a male cat it can be an emergecy. I hope you get a diagnosis soon!!!

I agree it sounds like FLUTD so I'd get her in asap.
Also, to anyone who knows how, it seems like the link Leanne posted about FLUTD might be a really good sticky? Has some good current info.

hello
i took Tizzy to the vets this afternoon- he said that it was FLUTD and has prescribed her some tablets to see if that helps, and if not then she will have to go in for an X-ray.
She most likely has a bladder infection rather than a blockage because the vet said her bladder was empty - which i dont understand as she hasnt peed in a few days - any suggestions?
Well anyway, i just thought i should give you an update and thanks so much for all your replies, i will be sure to let you know how the treatment goes.
