Default Bengal Cat Spraying Again? Blood?

I have a Six year old Male Bengal Named Chikotay, he's been fixed since he
was six months old. Over the past couple days I've been finding little
puddles of bloody urine on the ground. Now I have four other cats and two
small dogs. So it was tough to figure out who was leaving the puddle.
I easily eliminated the dogs, since they are potty trained in a box with
puppy pads instead of dog litter.
Today, three times already in about three hours time, I caught my Bengal,
walking upto the cabinet door in my kitchen and standing with his backside
to the door, tail going nuts like he was spraying. And each time he did
this, he would leave a Uriney smelling bloody spray on the cabinet door.
Any advice, my vet cant' get him in till atleast monday afternoon.
Is it possible for cats to be able to spray again even tho he's been fixed
for years.
I know that the blood could mean a variety of things, kidney stones, bladder
infection......
Any help is Greatly appreciated.

Take the cat to the vet as soon as possible. Blood in the urine is not a
good sign here and could be very dangerous here especially if it is a UTI.

He probably has a urinary tract infection; in a male cat this can turn into a
life-threatening blockage if left untreated. All that is required if for
your vet to take a urine sample from him. If he is open today, you should
take him in, it isn't a regular appointment so they should fit you in. If
not, then definitely go first thing Monday morning.

Blood in the urine (hematuria) of male cat is cause for immediate attention
because it can be the result of irritation of lower urinary mucosal from
calculi or crystals-- which can be a prelude to a urinary tract obstruction.
Hematuria in males can also because by tearing the bladder mucosa from
straining to urinate or from overdistention of the bladder from a partial
obstruction.

I strongly suggest you take your cat to a vet *as soon as possible*. A
urinary tract obstruction in a male cat produces a pathophysiologic state
equivalent to life-threatening oliguric acute renal failure.
