What would cause my cat to have runny, bloody stool? The blood only comes at the end of the bowel movement.

If your cat is not producing formed stools, if it's runny and there's blood in it, then you already know you need to take him to the vet. He could have a tear in his rectum or problems higher up in his intestines. But any time there's blood where or when there shouldn't be, your kitty needs medical attention, something we can't provide through the Internet.

There could be several problems, such as:
* Colitis (irritated bowel)
* Tear in the bowel
* Worms
* Obstruction from something he swallowed

Grab a stool sample that has the blood on it and take your cat and the sample to the vet as soon as possible.

Have them run a fecal check to rule out the lesser problems. Describe what you've been seeing and ask your vet for suggestions.

I hope your kitty is okay!

Can you possibly answer with a follow up as my new kitten 7-8 weeks old has the same problem, the stool isn't runny but soft yellowy brown but the mucous bloody comes at the end, though is getting less and less
