  • Is it bright red or dark red?
    A common cause is tapeworms. I would call your vet in the morning.

  • Yeah you should probably get that cat to the vet right away and try to find out what is wrong! There's also a ton of articles in the Vet Notes section of the Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's soul website -- you might try looking for some answers there: http://chickensoupforthepetloverssoul.com/vet_notes/cats/

  • It was dark red. Yea, I'm going to make an appointment at the vet, I was just wondering if anyone had any experiences with this and if it was serious.
