Rectal or anal bleeding in cats should not be ignored, as it could be the sign of a potentially very serious condition. A multitude of serious and not-so-serious conditions may cause rectal bleeding in cats, but all these conditions will need to be treated differently - so a diagnosis will be needed.

The best advice I can give to you is to take your cat down to the local veterinary practice as soon as possible. The vet will be able to give your cat a detailed examination and should be able to start treatment straight away.

Possible reasons why a cat's anus is bleeding:
  • Constipation.
  • Colitis.
  • Inflammation of rectum.
  • Polyps in the rectum.
  • Rectal fissure.
  • Rectal tumors.
I cannot stress how important it is that you take your cat to the vet straight away, as this bleeding could be the sign of a serious condition.
