My Cat Has Painful backside

by Cindy
(Greensboro, NC)

My female cat (5yrs old) is showing signs of either having a bruised spine/tail or something going on internally in her pelvic area. Normally she does not mind being scratched at the base of her tail. Today when I scratched her back at her tail she bit me and squeaked like she was in pain. She does go outside so I am not sure if someone may have kicked her or if she has dislocated her tail. I noticed she does have some drainage out her rectum or V area but she has always had a stinky rectum/V area. She is not swinging her tail from side to side like she normally does. Could she have an internal cyst?

I do not have the money right now for a vet since being unemployed for three years. Thank you for your help in answering my question.

Answer from Kate
Sadly there is no way to diagnose this problem without a full examination. She does sound like she is in pain or discomfort and so she does need to see a vet urgently.

You have a responsibility to your cat to get her some medical attention and so even though you have no money you need to try and find out if there are animal charities in your area who can help an animal in pain. There are many many charities big and small, dont be afraid to ask around, its what they are there for.

Take a look at my cat rescue page there are two animal charities in your area on there who may be able to help or advise.

I hope you are able to get her some help soon

best wishes KAte
