Ummm.... I don't think if she has blood in her urine that is a good sign... Asking me, you might want to take her to a vet, but some smarter person is probably going to come along and give you the best answer :) Ha ha

Yes that is normal for a cat in heat, but when she's not in heat, it's not regular. If it continues, take her to the vet, if not, you have a healthy cat. I suggest getting her spayed. It will stop unwanted behavior, and kittens.

She could have a severe bladder infection along with being in heat. I to wondered with my cat if it was normal and the vet did a test to check when she went in to be spayed. She had a severe bladder infection. Does she leave little pee puddles around the house? If she does, thats another sign.

My cat was the same, except she was spayed. I say she waits until she out of heat, to see if the bleeding stops

I called around to all the vets in my area to ask if it was normal and they informed me it wasn't. I rushed her in and she had a severe case.



Dieting & More! www.pHDrinkingWater.comMedically termed as hematuria meaning 'blood in urine', cat blood in urine is a sign of serious feline or cat illness which can be a cause of consideration for any pet owner. Blood in urine basically means presence of red blood cells in the urine, which if gross can be seen through naked eyes else can only be seen under a microscope. Although it is not a life-threatening disease there are various factors that contribute to this condition.CausesThere are various causes for hematuria in the cat which include, feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD), that affects the bladder, causing production of tiny crystals in the bladder which eventually become large, and result in large bladder stones. Also termed as feline cystitis, it is common in both male and female cats. Cancer, bacterial infections like cystitis or vaginitis of the urinary and genital tracts are some other common causes for blood in urine. Presence of calculi (stones) in the urinary tract or congenital urinary tract abnormalities can also lead to blood in cat urine. Poisoning, accidents or injuries, trauma, stress, etc. are some probable causes for blood discharge in the cat's urine.SymptomsBlood discharge in the cat's urine is not the only indication that your cat is suffering from some severe medical conditions. Behavioral changes like the cat becomes flaccid and unreceptive, frequent urination, pain while urinating or pain in the stomach area can also be signs or indications that the cat is unwell. Frequent visits to litterbox, strain while urinating, passing very small amounts at a time, licking the genitals more frequently or more intensely than usual are some other symptoms along with the blood in cat urine.DiagnosisThe vet may perform several tests to rule out possible causes like he may take the cat's urine sample to detect presence of blood, bacteria, crystals that indicate bladder stones, and other abnormalities. He may probably ask to do some blood test to evaluate the overall health of the cat. A series of clotting tests may be done to assess whether the cat's blood can clot normally. X-rays and ultrasounds will be helpful to check the presence of bladder stones and tumors in the cat. Serum biochemistry tests may be performed to evaluate kidney and liver function and to diagnose electrolyte and acid base disturbances.

Well, you know your stuff. My cat had a large bladder stone. We put her on a special diet, and now she's fine. But I've researched. In some cases, female cats do bleed when they are on heat, just not in the same way humans do.

There is no blood anymore in her urine. So it's a good sign, I think.

Take her to the vet. And get her FIXED if you don't plan on breeding her. It's really cruel to the cat.

It could just be the heat but just in case you might suggest bringing it to the vet. She might've got the UTI.(urinary tract infection)
