How to Catch Cat Urine for a Vet Visit (The Simplest Method I Know)

Full disclosure, I’ve been collecting our cat Curry’s urine for the last 12 months or so, and I had a lot of practice at it. That’s why this looks easy to do. In the beginning, it wasn’t easy. I’ve tried many different methods, and this the easiest way I came up with. This is the method with the least amount of contamination.
The most important part is timing. Usually, she has to start urinating before you can grab her tail, otherwise she’ll run away. In the video, I was lucky with the timing. She was just about to go and couldn’t stop, so she didn’t care that I grabbed her tail.
You can tell that when she’s urinating, her rear is very low to the ground. When she’s doing the #2, she’s sitting higher up. I don’t know if that’s b/c she’s a girl cat. I don’t know how boy cats do it.
The last part of the video is some of her urine test results. She as a renal failure. Her kidney has around 80% damage according to our vet. Our vet said, her living this long is around 1 in 100 chance. She was first diagnosed early of last year.
I give her 140cc of water each day with a syringe b/c she weighs 2.47 kg or 5.45 lb. This is her usual weight. She could use more water, but this is the best I can do. I give her 35cc each time, 4 times a day, along with her usual cocktail of medicines all crushed and mixed with water. All her foods are prescription foods and mostly wet foods.
These days, our doctor said if things continue the way they are, maybe there is a chance that her kidney function could return to 50%. That would be the best case scenario.
I wanted to share this video b/c I know how stressful and difficult collecting cat urine can be. I hope this video helps those in a similar situation.

  • Can you ask your vet about doing sub q fluids with her? I’m in the veterinary field, and we have all of our renal patients owners do this.

  • Foo I really want to thank you, you inspired me to do a no filter no c02 and no fert tank over two years ago, and I did. It helped me so much mentally and routine wise. I learned tons about aquatic plants and life through you and my own research inspired from your videos, I just did my routine maintenance and need to come and thank you again. Much love from your community

  • Check out golden paste. It's turmeric, coconut oil (can use olive or other oils) and black pepper. If you are on facebook check out turmeric user group. Or google turmeric life, Doug English. With the FB group you can check with drug interactions. It's cheap and easy to make. Some people have had improvements on their pet's kidney disease and actually went from stage 2 to stage 1. It could just slow the progress down. It's also good for arthritis, tumors, mild anticoagulant etc. Best wishes for the both of you. Big hugs.

  • Some vets will also get liquid-repelling litter that you can put into an empty litter box and when your cat does it's business, you can filter out the wate from the litter easily. Maybe ask your vet for that next time if this turns out to be too much hassle for some owners (many cats don't like being touched near the behind or tail)

  • Too many people feed their cats dry food, which is so difficult to digest. Canned food, freeze dried, or raw, are the best diets for cats (and dogs too). You are taking such excellent care of Curry. I hope for a happy healthy long life for her.

  • Thank you for sharing this! Both my furbabies have kidney problems. One was diagnosed with chronic kidney failure in oct 2013 and the other one just about a month ago. Next month we will go back for some blood tests and i was recommended to also bring a urine sample. The timing for this vid could not have been better! My vet recommended a clean litterbox with popcorn kernels but that wasn't very successful last time. Hope Curry gets better soon ♡

Never easy when our furry friends are going through health issues especially chronic. I empathize with you. You’re doing the best you can for Curry. She has a wonderful caretaker and friend! Thanks for sharing this to help other pet owners.

  • Is she also diabetic? We were told our dog had kidney disease, until she went blind then had an accident in our kitchen and I found out her urine was sticky. That's when I realized she was diabetic, which causes kidney damage. Insulin made her a much happier dog. Hope Curry continues to improve. Cats are tough. 😺💪

  • I have a diabetic cat and I'm very used to take urine samples for obvious reasons. I just put the sample bottle that I use to carry the urine right under his butt so he just... Pees in the bottle, no need to put tin foil and get all messy. Just put the bottle under his butt when the cat is peeing and voila.

  • Kidney issues are very common in kitties. I have had many over the years, and more than a few ended up succumbing to kidney disease. You are doing an amazing job, and the love you have for your pets is heartwarming. I sincerely hope that with time she improves. Clearly your effort and love have given her the best chance she has.

  • Aww bless her. I really hope she gets better. My friends greyhound was diagnosed with renal failure and the vets had put him on a special vet diet and I don't think he was due to live for too much longer. It cost her a lot of money. Unfortunately my friend passed away and her greyhound was rehomed with a lovely owner who then paid a lot of money on tests for Tim (the greyhound) for his renal failure. The tests came back saying he didn't have anything wrong with him after all. The veterinary surgery that my friend used was very well thought of in the area with a lot of us friends all using that vets for our own animals. It just goes to show though that they don't always get it right. Tim is now living the high life and has been with his new owner for four years. He has two female greyhounds to keep him company too! It may be worth getting a second opinion for Curry as you never know.
