Some Blood in Cat's Poop

by Sam
(Karachi, Pakistan)

I just brought home an adult male cat (1 year old). After few days his diet has increased 4 times then his normal diet maybe because I pamper her too much. The cat did encounter a bad exprience (shock/got scared) at his new home.

Its her 25th day here and today she got some thick dark red liquid (like ketchup) at the end of her poop, it was not too much but I feel very scared. It could be hairball or could be some fatal illness.

I did read about the "Diarrhea" topic at your website but I can not justify the situation. The cat is behaving normal i.e. sleeping playing etc except the increase in diet as mentioned above.

Since young age she only eats Cat Food called "Meo" that comes in both chicken and beef ..her favorite is beef. Sometimes she enjoy eating liver (boiled).

Kindly suggest me what is possible wrong with my cat. This is my first pet.

Hi Sam
I am sorry but I am not a vet and so could not possibly try and diagnose this issue. in fact the only real way of finding out what is wrong with her would be to take her to a vets who could examine her.

Any sign of blood in the faeces etc should always be investigated by a vet. (i am assuming here that she is spayed and so could not be associated with her being in heat).

You could wait a day or so to see if the blood continues to appear but if you are really worried then the sooner you can have her checked out the better.

best wishes Kate

Yes I did, The vet said my cat drank dirty water (i do have a small steam of water going to my garden which do have some green slime stuff). Which caused that blood/ketchup kinda poop.
Gave her some Anti-biotic and water mixed glucose as much as possible even if using a scring to force some of the water in her mouth, well the is ok now and in better health :)
