Cat Issues Abound on a Sunday-Myrna and Elizabeth

Myrna ok today. Not eating well. She sits at the bowl and eats for five minutes but nothing is really gone, just pushed around. She will eat dry food and dry treats. Has diarrhea due to antibiotic. I'm giving her yogurt, Forta Flora to help combat it; cutting out oily supplements; cannot really decrease water due to possible dehydration due to diarrhea; and will need to give water and liquid protein (tuna juice, KMR, corn syrup-just a touch of this) by mouth to support her general nourishment, electrolytes and kidneys and hydration levels.

Elizabeth presented us with a present first thing this morning-going out of the box followed by constant urination of dime size and smaller amounts every few minutes. Luckily, this time, all in a box. I secluded her in the bedroom; gave endless mls of water by mouth, two doses of buprenex of .2ml and then .15ml; and Clavamox 62.5mg pills (which are left over from this summer)-two of those between 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. She presented with blood in urine around noon. My husband took her to the ER because you can't wait 24 plus hours before the vet sees a cat that is urinating with blood. An infection can grow and infect the kidneys, not to mention who wants a cat urinating every few minutes around the house? Vet found bacteria and blood; will give us more Clavamox and Buprenex.
