What could cause bleeding after mating?

We have a female cat that has been in heat twice already, and both times she has bled. It gets all over her fur in the back like when a mother has just given birth. I don't know if it's from mating or something else. She has never been pregnant, and we have never had this problem with any of our other cats.

Wow! So from looking at your page, you have like a billion unspayed/ un-neutered cats just roaming around making more unwanted kittens and you see nothing wrong with that? You concern is why she is bleeding, but my concern would be why she is mating in the first place and why she is not spayed at 6 years old. And the fact that she has never been pregnant and has only been in heat twice and is bleeding from her vagina tells me there is definitely something wrong with her reproductive organs. I can only assume that she does not have a vet, so telling you to take her to the vet to find out why she is bleeding would be pointless???

Thats not normal. Usually females don't bleed during heat or after mating so you should take her to a vet.

I see you have a bunch of cats and lots of kittens. Not sure where you live but if you need help getting them fixed without spending a fortune here are a couple of sites that may be able to help you.

Remember we are not vets here and should not be dispensing medical advice. Anytime blood comes from anywhere it's not supposed to when it's not supposed to, you need to seek the advice of a professional. But be aware that you will most likely be given the same warning that our friend Allie has given you. Having so many unaltered animals who contribute to the incredible overpopulation of unwanted kittens in this country is unforgiveable. Perhaps you should visit a kill shelter to see these unwanted kittens drowned and thrown in a trash barrel. Or see what happen to kittens given away "for free" when they are used as bait for fighting dogs, tortured by sick adults and children, or sold for research. Please consider enlisting the help of a legitmate rescue organization in getting these animals spayed/neutered.
