Aloha! You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin
In the great majority of cases, such a young cat suffers from a bacterial urinary tract infection (UTI) which can be addressed with a broad spectrum antibiotic such as potentiated amoxicillin for a week. The urine is then checked two days after the course of antibiotics is finished in order to make sure that the urinary tract has been sterilized. Please have Ruby see her vet at your earliest convenience. Her prognosis for recovery is quite good with prompt attention.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
