OMC! This just is horrible. This past weekend, I started feeling like I had to go to the litter box constantly. Meowmy noticed me in the litter box very often and figured that I had a urinary tract infection since I was doing the same thing that she has seen Winchester do when he has one. She put me in the bathroom so that I didn't pee on everything which I hadn't yet. I decided to lay in the sink in the bathroom and later when meowmy checked on me, I had pee'd in the sink. Meowmy wasn't happy that I had done this but in a way glad that I did. She noticed that I was peeing blood. It had a lot of blood in it too otherwise she would have not noticed that much blood.
I went to the vet on Monday and the vet confirmed that I had a urinary tract infection. I got pills to take now and meowmy was thinking that I would fight her to give me the pill but I am being a good girl and cooperating. I am starting to feel better and it is a good feeling not having to go to the litter box every 2 seconds! MOL MOL MOL Oh and I hollered all the way to the vet and all the way home! MOL MOL MOL
Meowmy said that I am the first female kitty that she has had that has had a urinary tract infection. It has always been Winchester, Opie or Riley. Oh well, I'm just glad that I am feeling better!! YAY!
I am also having problems with my eyes again. They are clouding over and gooing a lot. I had some medicine injected near my eyes when I had my toofies pulled about 4 years ago and it cleared up my eyes and I had not had ANY problems up until now. The vet said that he wanted to clear my urinary tract infection up first and then he will treat the eyes. He is thinking about doing what the last vet did with the injection since it lasted so long but they will have to put me under to do it. So, I will have to go to the vet again soon for that! Oh well, once in 4 years isn't a bad thing! MOL
Love & purrz,

YOU! Are a lucky girl though... Your symptoms mirror the symptoms I had before my Cystostomy. (but I was having my small (less than a penny sized) pees captured and placed on a damp paper towel to see if any "blood" would leech out onto the damp towel.
The antibiotic injection is a nice thing and I hardly felt any side effects. (I took that while waiting for my Cystotomy to be scheduled)
There is something strange that happens with my eyes (2 years in a row now, but in July) I get some triple antibiotic eye ointment and my eye dyed and checked and re-checked)
4 years between your episodes isn't a bad thing.... I sure hope you are feeling better and more like yourself in no time Pretty Emily!
We'll all be purring for you!
we're purring your UTI goes away & your eyes get all better real soon, sweet Emily!
