|Yet another crisis

So I've largely got the basement thing under control. We're taking the opportunity to do some other work we wanted down there, putting in another outlet and installing some extra lights. We found a handyman who will put new drywall in and paint it for about a third of the price the people who gutted our basement quoted us. While we've been on the home improvement binge we also got some art framed and picked up patio furniture which required me to drive a U-Haul for the first time. It wasn't nearly as scary as I was expecting. What surprised me most was how high off the ground I was. It made even SUVs I was passing look tiny. But it helped that we were just driving a few miles between the rental, Chris and Sarah's place and our place since they didn't want to take their old set to their new house.
But yesterday I watched Zen sit in the sink and lift her tail and she left a tiny pinkish puddle behind. She did the same thing on the other side of the sink and on a plastic shopping bag. Turns out she's peeing blood. I'm taking her to the vet when it opens at 8. The Internet tells me it's probably a urinary tract infection and she seems totally healthy and happy otherwise but I'm nervous since she's not a young cat anymore. At least my boss was OK with my taking the time off. As he said when I told him "Peeing blood doesn't wait until Saturday."
