Meet Miggy, a 4-year-old domestic house cat. Miggy sure had his mom concerned when he had blood in his urine, and was going potty in other places than his litter box. This is a telltale sign of a urinary tract infection (UTI), which Miggy has had before, and his mom was concerned he had another one.
According to VCA, there are several signs that your kitty may have a UTI such as:
Miggy’s mom recently left her job, and his dad's paychecks were delayed. With a single income family, they struggled on how they would get Miggy into the vet on a limited income. Someone told them about Fur Kids Foundation, so they decided to apply; and, of course, we were happy to help out.
At the vet appointment, it was confirmed that poor Miggy did have a UTI. Miggy was put on some antibiotics, and is well on his way to recovery.
