what’s wrong with my cat?

my 6 month old cat has begun to start acting weirdly. it started last night when she began to crouch low to the floor and start to make sounds like a cry. she’s been doing the same thing all day, then starts to roll on the floor and looks like she’s trying to itch her butt or something. then when i picked her up and put her down i noticed there was a wet spot on my shirt from her, so i looked and her urinary tract opening seemed to be leaking a liquid? i called the vet and without looking at her, they gave us a prescription to help with uti’s. it does sound like it could be a uti as symptoms she’s having is licking her genitals and it’s clear she’s in discomfort. however i do not know what her urine is like yet to see if it matches with other symptoms. i’m just worried about her and it makes me sad seeing her in pain :( and especially at a time like this when i’m trying to stay quarantined it’s hard to get her to a vet. thank you for your help. and btw: i do have another cat who is 9 years older. they share the same food, water, and litter if that matters.

    She is in heat.  She will continue this every 3-4 weeks until she is spayed.  Do not let her outside to get pregnant.  Plan on spaying as soon as possible.

    Sounds like your vet answered your question and prescribes meds. Give it to the cat!

    Your cat is very young.  I hope that by now you have purchased the medicine from the Vet.  Why don't you want to take the advise of the Doctor?  I know you are quarantined, but medicine is one of the reasons you are allowed to go be outside.

    She's in heat. She'll be better in about a week. In the meantime, make sure she doesn't come in contact with any male cats. Once the quarantine is over, make an appointment to get her spayed.

    If the cat is not spayed then it in heat, and if you do not get her spayed then you will soon have a pregnant cat.
