We used one of those shallow rectangular ziploc containers to catch my Hav's urine. It worked fairly well and there was a bigger target that we needed him to hit to get a sample.

My vet always did the needle aspirate on my cat, who had urinary issues when she was a kitten. She just grumbled a bit, not even a hiss.

That's about all it was with my cat too... when they tried to catheterize her, they were almost shredded! Sounds awful, but it doesn't seem to bother them much.

I am sure you all are going to think I am beyond stupid (won't be the first time you've thought that, I'm sure ), but when they puncture the bladder with a needle, what prevents the urine, plus bacteria if present, from leaking into the abdominal cavity?
