Aloha! You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin
I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner and I regret that I can't communicate with you outside of this venue. If Rabbit is urinary incontinent - an uncommon disorder in cats - infection, urinary calculi (stones), and cancer (transitional cell carcinoma, usually) need to be ruled out. A neurologic basis (due to a spinal cord disorder, for example) is unlikely if she's only incontinent when she sits or is at rest.
Was infection ever identified through a urinalysis or bacterial urine culture and sensitivity? If so, was the urine rechecked after an antibiotic was administered for at least a week? If Rabbit's urine is currently sterile, an ultrasound of her urinary tract is indicated in order to search for both calculi and cancer. If neither can be found, drugs helpful for controlling urinary incontinence such as PPA can be considered.
