Cat with sores on her behind

by maria

my female cat was in heat the past two weeks then started bleeding/spotting I guess from her period and lost her appetite the past fews she started to eat again but today I noticed she has red sores on her butt she is an indoor cat and never gets out of the house.

There is no way unfortunately to diagnose this problem without someone examining her behind. Only a vet can do this properly.

It is not normal for a cat to have these sores and so there must be some other cause which may need treatment. the sooner you can have her checked by the vet the sooner the problem can be sorted out and prevented from getting worse.

my female siamese was in heat long time.always peed on furniture and clothes and rugs.also had red raised sore beside anus.not in heat now but don't know what to put on money for vet.i know it isn't ring worms.i have several creams i can put on it.

You shouldn't put anything on it as your cat will lick it off and it could be toxic to digest.

Clean the sore with warm water and then pat it dry. the cat will lick the area try and distract her when she doe so that it has a chance to heal. Give it a few days to see if it improves. if not then you will have to find a cat charity who may be able to help you cover the cost of vet treatment. Sorry
