Kitty bladder infections

Our maine coone has come down with a bladder infection. She hasn't had one in four years, but it sucks. She has to spend the day at the vet's tomorrow for pee sampling and the inevitable Clavamox prescription, none of which we can afford this week. She's trying so hard to pee, but hopefully it's not TOO bad yet cause it's only been a couple of days now. Argh. It's going to be a lean couple of weeks coming up.

That's too bad. I wonder if my cat may have one because he seems to get upset when he goes to the litter box. I dont think my other cats have ever had one. I dont know what the symptoms are.

The symptoms can include straining to pee, only having a tiny amount of pee coming out at a time, sluggishness, low-grade fever, sometimes even peeing blood, but hopefully you catch it before then. I'd take your cat to the vet no matter what if it's distressing for him to go.
