My childs Calico cat is sick..Help

ok, So last April we put down my childs cat of 13 years.
Then a baby Calico falls our way we bring her home for my child and the bond is instant. She is female, the difference is she is short and her belly is very distended, she purrs all the time, wines all the time and needs to be comfoted often.
Whlie we love doing this, now we notce her spending up to 15 min at a time in the litter box and coming out doing nothing. We have indeed found small amounts of blood in the tub where she sits, but are not sure where the blood is coming from.
I just heard that Caloco's are high in genetic issues. What could be wrong with my childs cat? I don't think she could handle another loss.
All animals (3) are up to date on all shots. The cats are inside cats.
Note my son's cat is the same age but is a russian blue and has no issues, they eat the same food, she is long and skinny, whle our calico just keeps growing in the tummy area (he looks over feed but indeed is not.

Hi I don't like the sound of the blood in the litter tray. It could be that she is badly constipated
To be honest I would take her to the vets as soon as you can. If she is impacted then she may need help from a vet. It would also be worth having her checked over for any other underlining condition, this will help put your mind at rest and hoping prevent your child from further loss.
