Unfortunately i don't think you can use the term raped for a cat, their social behaviors are different to out own and the same rules do not apply.

in the cat world a un neutered tom cat will try to mate with any female cat they come across. Now sometimes this happens sometimes the female will decide that she is not interested and fight him off or dissuade him. Although this will not stop the male from trying again and again. This is why un neutered tom cats end up with a lot of injuries.

In your cats case she sounds like she either has a bowel problem i.e loose stools which means that she defecates easily or she is frightened.

If it is possible to keep your female in for a few days to see if the problem happens when the male cat is around or not would be a good idea, in which case you will know that it is a tummy upset etc.

If it is that she is frightened then unfortunately that is just the way your cat is, some cats are more timid than others. You will then have to decide whether or not you want to make her an indoor cat if she is very nervous of outside influences.
