My Siamese, Susie, many years ago had the same thing. However, she was much more vocal about it.
She p'd in the bathroom sink and kept meowing for me to come. As soon as I saw the blood, she jumped down and went about her business. I figured she must have been smart enough to know I probably would never have seen it in the litter box.
Just have to add my compliments also on your beautiful girl. Apparently you are doing something well to keep her looking so good.
Thank you! She has basically been a spoiled princess all her life, so if that is the secret to longevity, I suggest you get to pampering
Yeah, Chichi has never, I mean never covered her "stuff". Thats how I immediatly knew it was her. I'm glad Susie let you know, I don't think I would be able to see it in Murphy until he started straining. He is very good about his litter duties.

Also, have they checked her lab work for an old lady? did they check her kidneys at all?
I think the vet meant that when a sudden/ drastic change in diet, could affect the urinary or digestive tract- which in turn could bring on poddy difficulties. Yes, that is what she said about her age as well, let her eat whatever she wants. She loves her wet food- begs all the time for it
We did'nt have time for a full examination. It was an emergency appt. and I was just glad to get in. Otherwise I would have had to take her somewhere she was'nt used to. That has been her vet for 19 years, and about the only ones who can deal with her temper
I have to bring her back next week for her regular nail trim, she will be checked over then
I have a little problem though, She definitely knows that pill is in her food
Even though I will have help, I seriously doubt I will be able to "pill her". She does'nt like treats, so those pill pockets won't work. Anyone got any tips on how to get her to take her pill? If I can't get a full one in her tonight, Ill have to call the vet tommorow and see if I can get a liquid form
