    Default odorless pee?

    Hello all -
    One of my five is peeing outside the box, and in large amounts. Fortunately, so far, it has been on a cement floor in the basement - but the reason I didn't notice it is because there's hardly any smell to it.
    This is totally new. I have 6 boxes for 5 cats, and it has worked pretty well.
    I'll be moving a watering station upstairs so I can notice who's drinking lots of water.
    I can't remember what large amts of pee means.

    Thx -

    Large pees can mean kidney failure or diabetes. I hope you can narrow it down pretty fast. Keep us posted.

    Cat urine has a strong odor since it normally is very concentrated. So odorless urine means very dilute, so it suggests a kidney issue. Could be diabetes or something else.

    Odorless pee usually means it isn't concentrated ... happens with diabetes and renal failure. Other things may cause it but those are the two I'm most familiar with.

    I've had cats in the past with diabetes and renal failure - I remember really bad breathe went along with one of these problems. That's not the case with any of the five. I'm going to take Sam in, since he's the one who came to me with urinary tract problems and requires a special diet. He's also the oldest. If I catch someone else drinking lots of water, they'll go in with Sam.

    Thanks for the ideas - I'll keep you posted.

    Ootay had kidney failure for three years. She never had bad breath. Bad breath usually starts when the kidneys are about done.

    Ketosis is bad breath from diabetes I think but I don't know much about feline diabetes

    And of course, every cat is different. I was just coming back to suggest that if you can't nail it down in a day or two to just start with the oldest cat (bringing to the vet for blood work and UA) and work your way down.

    Bonnie, did I miss something? Who is cat # 5?

    <edit> okay I found Raja's introduction thread. Tsk, we haven't heard nearly enough since then. And she is missing from your sig. You better get back into jail, after you figure out who needs the vet.

    Yeah I was thinking it might be diabetes as well. I did a little research on that a while back when I thought Precious might have it.
