Do cats get piles?

by Ian

I have noticed something wrong with my cat. There is something small and dark sticking out of her bottom. It doesnt seem to be bothering her, but it has been there afew days now, i THought she hadnt cleaned herself properly but its not that.

She is 13 this year and had been in good health for many years, it seems to be bothering me more than bothering her but obviously it isnt normal to have little dark lump sticking out of your bum!
You have any ideas what this is??

Answer by Kate
well it is quite possible that it is piles, after all when you think of what a pile is then why wouldn't a cat be prone to them. Although i must say i haven't come across them before, so maybe it is rarer in cats.
I'm not sure what the vet can do, but i'm sure he may be able to remove it, he may even want to do some more tests just in case it is something else. It is worth getting her checked especaily as she is not a young cat any more but far from being very old.
best wishes kate
