I'm worried about my cat *may be TMI*

Earlier tonight I was sitting in the kitchen and I heard a really loud meow. One of my cats was running through the room toward the bathroom where I keep her litter box. She didn't make it and ended up pooping on the bathroom floor. *ick factor warning* her stool was really runny, kind of greenish and I think there was a little bit of blood in it. I'm going to call the vet tomorrow but I'm really worried about her.

  • Definitely get her checked out. None of that is normal. I would also be really worried. You get all my hugs.

    One of my cats had that problem. I took her to the vet and it turned out she needed to be on special food and had worms. My cat's meow was digestive pain kind of like when we moan if our bodies are out of whack. Hope it's nothing major!
  • Sending you hugs.  My cat had blocked anal glands and I found blood in his stool.  Doc put him on some wet cat food to boost his digestion.  Bring kitty to the doctor tomorrow, most times it is a simple solution.
  • Would you guys be concerned with this- when my cat gets really scared/ startled she squirts a tiny spray of poop. It smells so bad like a thousand dirty diapers. I haven't gotten her checked because it's only happened a few times when something really startled her and she's 9 years old so I chock it up to that (kinda like old people can't hold their pee).

  • @jenna8984, it sounds like she's expressing her anal glands which some cats do when they are really startled.  The stuff from the anal glands does smell absolutely horrible.  If it's only happened a couple times when she's been really frightened then I personally would not be concerend but there's no harm in asking your vet the next time you take her in for a check up.

  • I called the vet and he was booked for the day so I have to wait until tomorrow. So I'm probably going to spend another night being super worried.5

    If they thought it was serious, I'm sure they would have found a way to get you in today. I've had times in the past where I called right as they were closing and my vet stuck around for me to come in or had me come in even if they were booked full that day. So, if you explained the symptoms and they didn't seem to concerned, it probably isn't anything serious.

    Although, even then, if my pet was still in pain, I wouldn't want to wait any longer than needed. Is there another vet office in your area that you could take her to?  Maybe even call your vet and ask if they could recommend someone else that may be able to get you in today.  We have a back-up vet office that we keep info on our fridge, just in case.  The back-up office is also 24-hour emergency clinic, which we unfortunately have had to use at night when our dog was in major pain (luckily, it ended up just being urinary tract infection). 

    Or at least call your vet back, tell them the symptoms, and ask what they would recommend until your appointment.  They may recommend dietary changes that would be easier on the stomach or some over counter medication that might provide temporary relief until tomorrow. From past issues, we learned that one of my dogs has really sensitive stomach and if he starts having problems, vet recommended that we switch him to chicken and rice only diet until we can get him in.  It usually helps relieve his symptoms and makes him more comfortable until he can get better treatment or for meds to kick in.

  • I agree with trying to get her into another office, although it probably isn't anything immediately serious.
