Cat has black stool

My cat had a bowel movement this morning or lastnight and its black and looks someone like tar, what does this mean?

Answer by Kate
It sounds to me like she may not be drinking enough and this is making her stools hard and dark.

It is important that cats get enough fluid to make their stools easy to pass.

i do have a page about cat constipation which you may find of further help here

best wishes kate
