It doesn't smell like anything, and there isn't anything in it... but it must be one of the cats.
What the heck could it be??
When you talk to the vet, mention the liquid. It's possible that it could be very dilute urine. My kitties Spot and Willow both peed on things a few days ago. Willow's was very concentrated and a deep yellow, while Spot's was almost as clear as water. If I hadn't seen him do it, I would have though something had spilled. You may want to have a follow-up urinalysis done to check the specific gravity and to see if there are crystals. I would be careful about stopping the medication suddenly. Different medications have different half-lives, and (at least in humans) they can have severe withdrawl symptoms. Willow (who has bouts of cystitis, no crystals) was on amitriptyline for a while. It helped, but I made sure to taper very slowly, going from halves to quarters to quarters every other day. I would imagine a cat would become very confused at withdrawl symptoms.
What food is your kitty getting? Some foods will increase the likelihood of crystals. Also, the stress of a new kitten could be aggravating his symptoms. I think Willow's cystitis started when my former roommate moved in with her cats, but it wasn't diagnosed until after she left and Spot joined us. Do the best you can to keep the stress level low, either by investing in Feliway, using the vanilla trick, or anything else that might keep your kitty calm.
