Poor Diddy has blood in her pee

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Yesterday, my husband accidentally shut Diddy up inside my dresser. She had crawled from an open drawer into a closed one so he didn't know she was in there. I always do a "nose count" and I noticed she didn't greet me at the door when I got home from work. We looked frantically for an hour and finally found her. She had been shut up about 6-8 hours in that drawer . I cried because I felt awful for her. Shy cried and has really been beating himself up over it. He loves our kitties, he would never want something like that to happen to them. She had peed in the drawer and the pee stains were pinkish. She is acting fine otherwise. I have an appointment with the vet at 10:45 this morning. Anyone have any ideas about why she has blood in her pee? Wish us luck. Poor Diddy is so super sweet and doesn't deserve to be sick.

Thanks Susan. I'll keep everyone updated. I'm just worried sick about my poor Diddy. I almost took her to the emergency vet last night but I really only like taking my kits to their regular doctor, Dr. Hull. He is sooo wonderful. Sandy had cholangelohepatitis and hepatic lipodosis back in November and Dr. Hull brought her back to health. I've been to other vets around here and they're more businessmen than vets.

Yes, Dr. Hull is always great about squeezing my babies into his schedule at the last minute He even knows I'm afraid of dogs and lets me come in the back when there are big dogs in the lobby. He's such a kind person and wonderful doctor

I know. It's soo hard to find someone you trust and like. I'm very lucky to have found Dr. Hull (and he's very lucky to have me and my 4 babies to pay for his kid's tuition and his vacations )

Kelly,

It was more than likely just brought on by the stress of being locked in like that. But it is good to check it out.

Years ago, we had a construction team out here, and they were installing these heavy wooden doors. The doors were framed with wood, so they jutted out (they did that to make them easier to move. They were leaning out the side of the house, and they were knocked over. Mike just told the crew to leave them be (since they were so heavy) and we would pick them up later that night. Well, we picked them up only to discover Kahuna had been trapped inside! He was in there 6 hours and all he had was a scrape on his leg. He could have been really injured when they fell over, so he must have gone to the center and just crouched down. Because their were so many and they were so heavy, we couldn't hear him cry. He was stressed for days, but soon was back to his normal self.

Dr Hull thinks Diddy is gonna be just fine. His theory was the same as MA's-----that it was probably brought on by the stress of being locked in for that long. I brought in some of the garments she had peed on and he wasn't really sure if it was blood in the urine or just darker concentrated urine (the garments weren't white, so it was hard to tell the true color of the pee). He thinks that since she went back to using her litterbox, hasn't urinated outside of it any other time, and she is eating/drinking/playing normally, that there are no underlying illnesses. He gave me some antibiotics just in case and advised me if she did urinate outside the box, to bring her back in.

He didn't even charge me for an office visit, (which I would have gladly paid double the amount for squeezing us in). He only charged me for the antibiotics. He knows me and my kitties are faithful, loyal customers and he is a fair man. God bless him.

On my way out of the office, I saw three 4 day old kittens someone had dropped off. He and his staff are gonna care for them and raise them. I don't know many vets who will devote that much time. I wish everyone on TCS had a "Dr. Hull".

Thanks everyone for your care and concern. Diddy sends licks and headbutts

Wow. Poor Kahuna. It's a miracle that he wasn't crushed by the doors. He really dodged a bullet on that one. That's one lucky cat, MA!

Awww sending lots of good health vibes for poor Diddy. And loads of hugs for you and hubby too - these things happen; I'm sure she'll be back to normal in not time.

These things happen, Kelly

I accidentally locked Oliver in the guest bathroom earlier this summer. We had a couple of houseguests, and things were nuts, and I closed the door to the guest bathroom having just seen him sleeping in the living room, not realizing he had scooted in there so quickly!
I heard him meowing in there several hours later, poor baby had had to use the bathroom and so had done a #2 on the floor and a #1 in the sink
He seemed so embarrassed! I felt so bad, and gave him extra treats that day.

I'm glad to hear Diddy is okay, and that you have such a great vet!

Thanks, Beth. Accidents do happen. Maybe this will teach him to do "nose counts" every so often like I do. He's not used to being home with the kits without "mom" here. I'm SO relieved everything turned out OK. She seems to be acting completely normal----except for being a little ticked that I took her to the vet

Thanks so much!

Poor Oliver. Diddy seemed embarassed that she peed too!!


Don't you feel horrible when they've been locked in somewhere? Diddy is very curious and she sneaks into every door you open. She has been shut up in the fridge, linen closet, coat closet, etc. but just for very short periods of time. She always cries and we hear her and find her. She can open the cabinets on her own, we had to buy those child proof thingys

Yay, I'm glad Diddy is okay.

This is what I get for hardly ever looking at this forum
Poor Diddy AND Shy (and Kelly!)! I'm so glad your little ebony darling is doing better now and that the peeing was probably just stress-related.
I hope all the meds and the unending TLC that I know you are doting on her right now will do the trick . Give her extra kisses from me!
post #21 of 24
Thank goodness Diddy's ok! It just shows you though doesn't it what stress can do!

I have a small walk in wardrobe and i've lost count the times Rosie or Sophie have walked in as i've been closing the door, then when i couldn't see them anywhere in the house i've retraced my footsteps to where i'd been

Awww, thanks Amy!! I gave her some kisses for ya and she sent you some back. I was so scared when I saw how dark her pee was! Poor Diddy! Thankfully, now she's acting completely normal-------sweet, doting, and loving.
