  • no.. not always.. what if she ate something that was too big for her to pass or what if she scratched back there - depends on the amount of blood and how often its happening.. I think you should take them in if you see it and it looks worrysome

  • she could just have parasites or a blockage or a bacterial infecion or a virus or leukemia (which is not cancer in a kitty but can be fatal) You need to call your vet asap. Why have you waited?

  • it if not for sure it means that their are other stuff that can cause that. the best thing to do is to take your cat to the vet so they can check him. make sure you do it soon like asap so the cat doesnt get worse good luck and hope your cat is well

  • Take her to a vet, They will know much more than any of us would.

  • Not necessarily. There are other reasons for blood in poop (one of our dogs, for instance, had colitus and used to have bloody poop when she had a flare up.) However, there's no way to know without a vet checking the cat out, and any and all of these things would require vet intervention anyhow.
