Midnight is a stray that found us about 3 months ago. Best guess by Dr is that he is about 11 or 12 months old. So he is not elderly at all. I will try to change the litter type but the pee isn't the big issue. That is what took us to the Dr. but the renal failure is what brought me to

blood cells in the urine usually indicate bacteria is present, thus a UTI. Curing this will most likely help with the peeing everywhere. Make sure they give you antibiotics to cure the UTI if the vet says that's what it is. :) Wendy --- Jennifer Madon [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: I just called
