Not a great subject for my first blog entry, but mama and I have questions. I've been visiting the litter box a lot and a few days ago, mama saw blood. I've been to the vet and have an infection I'm now on medication for. But there's a problem. Something called transitional cells were found in my pee. It wasn't a sterile sample since I left it on the table for them oops, but I don't doubt the test. Thing is, it COULD be from the infection if it's been going on longer than mama noticed. Otherwise, it's really bad news. It's possible it's cancer, a kind that causes tumors in the bladder. Does anyone know about this? Any cats out there who've had it or know one who did? Mama's looking into diagnosis options, but she wants information of any type before deciding. I go back next week for a recheck after I finish the anti-biotic. Thanks for any help you can give!

There were cells in my pee that could mean cancer. We'll find out more at a recheck Wednesday. If I've had an infection longer than mama realized, the cells could have come from that, but the vet seemed to be leaning towards bladder cancer. If the cells are still there, they'll do a contrast xray and see if there are tumors.

Yep. But until my follow-up Wednesday, we still don't know what we're dealing with. Didn't know if I knew anyone who'd dealt with bladder cancer or not.

I wish I could help you but I don't have any answers. I'm sure your vet will be able to tell you. I'm purring up a storm for you. Please let us know what happens.
