How to Collect Cat Urine for a Sample

Last Updated on July 8, 2021 by Jenny

As many of you know, I regularly consult with an animal communicator, Holly Jacobs, about my cats and my family’s cats to see how they are doing.  Holly and I share tips and tricks often – and one of them recently was how to collect cat urine for a sample.  She said she has had a few clients in the past few weeks needing to collect cat urine for a sample for your vet and shared this video with me.

Usually the vet will give you non-absorbent cat litter to use for the process, but if they don’t – you can also grab some on Amazon like the Nosorb Non Absorbent Cat Litter mentioned in the video above or Kit4Cat Hydrophobic Sand or Non-Absorbent Reusable Cat Litter For Urine Collection.  Non-absorbent cat litter is usually plastic pellets or hydropobic sand that have the texture of cat litter for a kitty, but definitely not the same smell as any current litters.

You also want to make sure that the litterbox is clean and doesn’t have any residue from cleaners or previous use by the cats.

Have you had to collect urine from your cat?  How did it go?  Any tips or tricks you learned during the process that you’d like to share with other readers?

      our vet does that too if there is enough when they are there for the visit. if not, then they send you home to collect at home.

    I am lucky. I just put a bowl (clean of course and dedicated to this process) under the toilet seat and collect the urine after Diva uses the toilet.
    I hate litter and only had it in my house for 2 weeks after I got her.
