Agreed...I believe bleeding could be a sign of a uterine infection.

I, as well am not an expert in anything, but any bleeding is not really considered normal. I hope you get her to the vet very soon and that it's something that can be taken care of quickly!!

No, cats don't have "periods". I'm not a dog person, but I believe they (dogs) do bleed...but cats should NOT be bleeding. It's not normal.

Hmm ok. Now I am worried. I really just thought cats had periods....

No... I don't believe cats bleed. Dogs will usually leave little blood droplets, but now cats. Get her to the vet as soon as you can. Let us know how it turns out...

As far as I am concerned, any show of blood anywhere on her body should be checked out by a vet. Vet now...think later.

I talked to the vet asst and she didnt seem to think it should be anything to worry about. She also said cats do bleed like dogs....

I am doing some research and I found something that says cats DONT bleed and if so it may indicate a miscarriage........

She really should be seen by a vet. Even if it is a miscarriage, it's possible that there are still kittens in there, or she may have an infection.

My experience with intact females is not extensive...but I've never observed any blood during a heat cycle, nor at any other time. There can be tiny amounts of clear discharge, but kitty typically cleans this up as she goes...and it's tiny, like I said. There can be blood, but it's typically a sign of a problem (most often an infection).

I just don't like the idea of blood. It doesn't sit well with me. I hope Miss Kitty is OK. How old is she?

I've seen bleeding. In miscarriages. One stray cat showed up at my place bleeding & died before I could get her to the vet. She could have been saved if I had just taken her to the vet right away. Please, take Ms. Kitty to the vet ASAP!

Cats do not have "periods" nor do they bleed during estrus. The only reason a cat should be observed bleeding at all from the vaginal area is after delivery of a litter of kittens, when a few very small drops of blood are discharged for about 7 to 10 days afterwards.

If your cat is bleeding, no matter what the vet tech says, she should be seen by her vet now to eliminate the possibility of a more serious, even life-threatening issue.

Hmm now im confused lol. The kitten we got from our shelter went in heat before we were able to get her fixed (vet wouldnt fix till 4 months). She did have a little bleeding (a few drops on the floor) not bright red but blood none the less. I rushed her to the vet thinking she had a bladder infection or something. The vet ran tests and everything was fine he told me that a few cats will bleed a little during heat cycles he then went ahead and spayed her a little early since she went into heat already.

I think, generally, cats do NOT bleed during estrus. Dogs do though, and the amount depends on the dog. I worked in a shelter for a month and we had some cats in estrus and they never bled.

PLEASE take your cat to a vet to be checked out!! Bleeding is NOT normal, unless she was pregnant and just had kittens or misscarried...even then, she would still need to be taken to a vet.

To ease your mind . . . take her to see a vet!!
