My cat has been hiding under the table the past couple of days. We noticed yesterday that his butt was wet and kinda red. Today we checked him and he has a open sore and his butt area is really red. He has very long hair and is an indoor cat. What should I do? I was wondering if maybe he got poop caught in his hair and he is trying to remove it. He caught poop caught one time before and I had to cut it out. This does not look like poop is caught.
If there is more than one cat, it could be from fighting.you should really take your cat to your vet , bacteria, infections,not to mention the discomfort and pain the cat could be in. If you had a sore next to your rectum what would you do?
You need to have your cat checked out the vet, as this sounds like he's got an anal gland abscess which needs drained and removed.
