Hoarding over the water bowl.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
It's starting to worry me a bit. The last 3 to 4 days I've come across my Skye just laying next to her water bowl. I make sure it's always full with fresh water and every morning I give it a good rinse out. Also I've been noticing when I clean her litter box there is more urine than poop. Could this be a sign of something like that I need to take her to the vet or is she just really thirsty?

Could be kidney or diabetes problems. How old is Syke? Would be best to get a senior panel at the vet.

She isn't even a year yet. I'd say 7 months.

I would definitely go to the vet, just to be sure.

I agree, better safe then sorry. Let us know how it turns out. Try to take a urine sample in too when you go in if you can.

Get the kitty to the vet ASAP. Bring along the names of all food and treats that you have given her to eat.
Also include lot dates and exp dates and report this info to the vet.

Sounds like Kidney or Diabetis. My Cat with Kidney Problems drinks alot of water. It could be a infection too. Coco drinks alot with her Bladder Infection. You need to go to the Vet.

I agree - a vet visit is in order. I personally doubt it has much to do with what you are feeding but have the info ready should the vet ask for it.

Went to the vet this morning. Skye was running a bit of a fever but when they did the urinalysis it turned out to be a UTI. Came home with some pretty pink antibiotics and a very unhappy kitty. But luckily it's just that and nothing more serious.

Awww poor Skye. Hope she feels better soon. At least you were able to find out about the UTI before it got worse. Good mommy detective work!

When your home all the time with your furbaby you notice their patterns. My SO thought it was cuz we moved her water bowl into our room. But I knew something was up. I'm just glad it was that and not something more serious. She did however loose a tooth while we were there

awww i have always found at least 1 tooth from the little furbabies i have had since a kid but squishy kitten is the first one i have not found a tooth for. I am a little silly on those kinds of treasures.
