Max is my black kitty. He fought a urinary track infection the at the beginning of this month. When we found that one, we also found out he had lost 2 pounds, which for a 12 pound cat is a lot. He finished that round of antibiotics (10 days) and went in for a re-check on Monday. No weight gain and still finding blood in the urine. So he had an x-ray to check for kidney stones. That showed nothing. Some urine was sent out for cultures. We are waiting to hear the results. Meanwhile, he is back on antibiotics and we are feeding him whenever he wants - which means we leave his food down and refill his bowl when it is empty. It also means that we have to put up the bowl when our other cat is around or she will eat it. If it is just an infection, Max may be on antibiotics for up to three months.
