Blood Drippings

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
This morning my kitty (Crystal) has been acting quite strange, she's been assuming the squat position but instead of her pooping or urinating, she's dropping blood drops. I've never had problems with her the whole 14 years I've had her, so this is kind of a suprise, even though she is getting old. Any help, I would very much appreciate it, thank you.

Two words---VET NOW ! Wouldn't you take yourself to a human doctor to find out what was wrong if it was you?

Yes, your kitty needs immediate vet attention. When was the last time your kitty urinated or had bowel movements? It could be that Crystal is getting old, and losing bowel movements, which is blocking her up. Or, it could be that she ate something, where she needs surgical procedures immediately! You need to get her to a vet as soon as you can! This could be very serious, and potentially life threatening! You need to get her professional help immediately!

I hope and pray all goes well!
Please keep us updated!

Poor Crystal Yes, this is that serious...and yes, you really must get her vet attention asap...it could be a variety of things including a urinary tract infection, or a blockage...the squat position is straining - could be to pee or to move her bowels, in either case, this is NOT a situation that can wait even a day or two, it is truly that urgent.

Please post back here after she's been seen, I hope it is something easily remedied...at 14 Crystal still has good years ahead of her with you!

Unfortunately, my great aunt refuses to take her to the vet because she "doesn't have the extra money". I don't know what I'm going to do now, considering there's no such thing as pet medicaid. Thank you anyway though.

that is unfortunate. Please tell your great aunt that your cat can die from this if it is a blockage and the cat is unable to pee. Please also let her read this article, perhaps she will relent and spring for the $30.00 vet fee!

My buddy is gonna be all better now! The doctor kept her for a while today, and got a urine sample. She pretty much had a bladder infection, bunch of blood in there, lucky very little bacteria which is good news. She gave her amoxcilin, and she should be done with it in ten days. It's good to have muh buddy home, and know that she'll be ok. Thanks for the help (o: `, Maybe when she's better I'll take some pictures with her ^.^

I am so relieved you got your relative to change her mind! Give your kitty all the medicine as prescribed even if you "think" she is doing better. These things are tricky and can reoccur-
