Coughing and hematuria (blood in the urine) aren't necessarily related to the same disorder but could result from bleeding into his lungfields as well as bleeding into his urine as can be seen with thrombocytopenia (low blood platelets) or an anticoagulant rodenticide poisoning. Roscoe needs to see a vet at your earliest convenience as such bleeding can be life threatening. His tachypnea (increased respiratory rate) indicates severe respiratory compromise.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish but I'd rather you were on your way to his vet.
