wee problem.. well let me tell you the story. I have a cat of 18 and she gets really distressed going to the vets so i need to know if my problem is absolutely neccessary for a trip. Basically she has been having wee troubles. she either goes in her tray and wees loads or goes in her tray and sits there for ages and wees a little. also she wees on you if you pick her up sometimes she will be just sitting in your arms peacefully and suddenly LOADS of wee comes out. sometimes i dont even think she knows she is doing it because she sorta stares round the room lyk nothing has happened , she has done this 3 days running only recently.. its getting ridiculous is this serious? does it warrant a trip to the vet? is it fatal for a cat of 18?!?
please help x

Did you not take her to the vet when you thought she might have worms?.

At the age she is she really needs a thorough checkup at the vets, so i would say yes take her, especially when it's just started happening.

we are keeping a check on the worms and if she goes today she will get a thorough check up and the whole caboosh i will probably take her but it is so distressing for her i dont no if just the vet trip will finish her completely!

As she doesn't travel well, would it be possible for the vet to visit you at home?

May be more expensive, but would save a lot of stress!

We used to get the vet out for my RB kitty! It was a little easier as she would run away whenever she got the incling that she would be visiting the vets. She was much calmer at home!

I hope you'll be able to work something out so your kitty can be seen and nobody has to get stressed!

You can always ask your vet to do a home call but it'll cost a bit extra, at least that way she's not getting stressed

Get her in quickly- at her age with those types of problems she needs help now. Here is an article that might help- keep your stress level down, act like it is no big deal when you put her in the cat carrier, but get her to the vet
