Cat peeing blood and peeing on furniture
I've been dealing with a flea infestation for a few months now and my older cat passed away last month. Now my remaining cat is peeing in the wrong places. First she was sleeping in the window over my bed and started peeing on my bed, with me in the bed. I noticed it was pink and she meowed when she peed. I took her to the vet and they did a test of her urine right on the spot and said it looked ok. Now I don't know much about tests but it seemed to be a quick test, I thought they'd send it off and get results back but they said they put in in a centrifuge (?) to separate it and looked at it and it didn't look like there was any particles or bacteria in it (is this something that can be done in 10 minutes?).
I moved to a new town and can't go to my old vet, though I wish I could, and this one has a reputation for being expensive. The vet said it was probably stress related and gave her another shot of antibiotics (that supposedly last two weeks) and a shot of something to help with stress and discomfort which she said would last up to 48 hours and didn't charge me for so I don't know what it was. She has scabs on her neck that they think is an irritated reaction to fleas but she's in the window and is avoiding them, so that is why she got the first shot of antibiotics.
She is still peeing blood (though how much depends sometimes her pee is red and other times it looks normal, it is not consistently the same colour) and is peeing on furniture even if the litter is near by. I use Sweet Scoop wheat cat litter and try to scoop at least once daily but when I get busy I can miss a day or two. With the fleas she is staying in the window and I feed her here and have the litter right where she can go but this weekend while I was away she moved to a different window that wasn't near her litter and started peeing on the top of a shelf. Soft bed I can understand if she's uncomfortable peeing but hard shelf?
I want to pursue more treatment but I can't afford the 'Beverly Hills' clinic (as I've heard it called) jerking me around like with the urine specimen they 'tested'. I am going to try to find someone to take me to my old vet outside of town but I'm afraid of getting fleas in someone else's car. Any advice on how this could be done and on tests that I can ask for would be appreciated. They haven't called me back or suggested any further course of action and after $500 in vet bills last night I don't want to keep going in and having them blindly do stuff when it doesn't feel like they really care or are worried about my cat.
