Hi,

It is true that the source of this discharge needs to be further investigated.

I know that your cat is spayed, but I am wondering if perhaps some tisue was left behind and this is the souce of the infection. Does she ever show any signs of being in heat?

There is a possibility that Noodle has a stone in one of her ureters and that this is causing infection. This could be what the mysterious "object" is. One of my cats has a stone in a ureter and she is prone to urinary tract infections because of the irritation. Do you know if the kidneys appear normal on x-ray? Cats with ureteral stones also tend to have stones in their kidneys. A cat can actually become totally blocked by these stones if they are present in both ureters. This happened to a cat that belongs to one of my friends. Surgery to remove these stones is extremely delicate and puts the cat at very high risk so it is rarely performed.

I think that, for now, keeping your kitty on the antibiotics for a longer period of time is the way to go. No matter where the discharge is coming from, it is the correct antibiotic for the infection, as a culture was done.

I am glad that your cat is acting normally otherwise.

Regards,
AshleyElla
