    Blood in the stool

    Hello petlovers

    Lately I've been seeing blood in one of my cats stool. I have three cats, one female and two males and It is pretty hard to tell which cat it is but since my female cat doesn't cover her stool up then I know it is hers. Also it is a soft stool, is that ok when a cat has a soft stool or is that a health problem. She seems healthy, eats well and runs around with my other two cats and she has shiny fur. I just hope she is not sick, I don't want any problem especially when she is only young yet. Any help or suggestion would be appreciate. Before I rush her over to the vet, I want some answer. Does anyone had this problem with their cat? Thanks for your time and consideration. Please reply!!

    I'd say if there is blood in her stool you need to call a vet ASAP!! That could be very serious or it just could be something small like a tear or scratch from another cat on her bum. But either way, you should call a vet and take them in a sample!! I hope she's ok!

    I'd have to agree about getting her to the vet ASAP.

    Is her stool normally soft? If not, that's another reason to get her to the vet.

    Please let us know what you find out. And welcome to Pet Talk!

    I agree you must take her to the vet. But you mustn't be afraid, it could be something that can be healed with antibiotics or so even if it shouldn't be as harmless as a scratch.

    Yes, please see a vet with a stool sample. If you are not 100% sure which cat it is, separate them into 3 rooms each with their own litter box (You should have that many with 3 cats) because you do not wish to treat the wrong animal if a problem is found.

    Are you the same person as acatsmeow? If so, please use just one log in name..it is confusing. If not, what are you talking about?

    As to I_love_cats, at least call the vet!!!

    It means you should call a vet and have your kitty checked out for something that could be really serious!

    If acatsmeow and I_love_cats are the same person, than the problem exists now for 6 weeks which means it can't be a scratch. Take her to the vet. ASAP.
