female cat leaking

by Brittany
(Avon, MN )

hello my female cat Sassy is leaking white fluid from her rear end. i believe from her vagina. I was wondering what causes this. Is she in heat or is there a more serious problem? She is about 4 years old, and not fixed.

Answer by Kate
Hi yes it may have something to do with her being in heat but i suspect that she may have an internal infection which needs to be seen and treated by a vet.

This is another good reason for having cats spayed as there are health benefits too for the cat apart from not getting pregnant.

there is more information on this on my pages about neutering which you may find of further interest.


In the meantime I would check with your vet to make sure that she does not have an infection.

hope she is ok

best wishes Kate

I have 2 female cats that r fixed. and they are leaking from the rear end and it has a bad odor to it. want to know why. Amy one know why?

Reply: Sounds like an infection but it is strange that it is happening to both cats. If this has been going on for more than a few days best to see a vet. Kate
