Older cat

What does blood in olde cat's stool mean?


Blood in the stool means somewhere in the digestive tract there is bleeding. It can be an anal fissure brought about by passing a hard stool, diverticular disease (small pouches on the colon wall) that can bleed or get infected, or a number of other benign growths like polyps that can bleed. These can happen at any age in a cat but the older cats are more vulnerable.

I suggest you watch and see if it stops or continues. Hopefully it is something simple already mentioned but if it gets worse and/or continues for more than a few days, you will have to take your cat to the vet to be checked for more serious possibilities.
