Customer Question
Hi, My 15 yr old female...
Hi,
My 15 yr old female cat is sick. She was in and out of her litter box for last few hours. There is a bloody water dripping out of her, can't really tell if it is from her anus or urethra. Can she wait for a vet visit until morning? It's 1:30am now.

Hello this is Dr. Holloway, but you can call me Dr. H for short.

It sounds like Kicia could have either a possible UTI or a condition called FLUTD (feline lower urinary tract disease). These both are typically not emergency situations and she can wait until the morning for treatment.

Also to differentiate where the blood may be coming from you can use a paper tower or tissue to dab her vaginal area after she makes a trip to the litterbox to ensure it is coming from there and not her anal area - Dr. H
