Something red sticking out my kitten's behind

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Where the cat normally goes to the bathroom, there's like a red thing that is sticking out of him. It won't come out, or it won't go back in. He's leaving poop stains all over the room we lock him in. What could this be?

It could be part of his intestine. Please get him to a vet right away to get it checked out!

I agree with Yola, your kitten needs to be seen by a vet ASAP!!! Please update us and let us know what you find out.

How scary. He could have eaten a foreign object or something. Please dont try to pull it out. That could cause damage to the kitten. I agree a vet trip is in order asap!

How much are vet visits usually? We are extremely poor and may not be able to afford a vet at the moment. Before this thing popped out and got stuck. He was struggling when pooping.

Please take this cat to the vet now, most of us are not flush with money, but we take in a cat, and the responsibility to care for it comes with it. There are always ways to raise money for necessary vet visits, and vets are really good about taking payments, post-dated checks etc. Your cat needs a professional to look him over and evaluate him.

Definitely take the cat to a vet immediately...if you don't have the money right now maybe you can make payments or if you have a credit card, put it on that and pay it a little at a time. It is much better than the cat suffering and dying. I have had to use my credit card a few times for vet visits and then pay it later. Keep us updated! Good luck!

Could you give us an update on your cat's condition? What did the vet say? From your description it sounded like an anal prolapse, for which only a vet can fix, as it may need surgical attention. The cat may be in a lot of pain, and DO NOT try pushing it back in yourself.

After this has been taken care of, please ask the vet how you can add fiber or get fiber-added foods for your cat, and have him drink more water. There are also excellent suggestions on these boards, just do a search. FYI for others, although there are different causes for this, the main one is not enough fiber in an unbalanced diet.

Well I took the kitten to the humane society because we could not afford a vet at the time, and they had to put my 11 wk old kitten to sleep. I've been feeling pretty sad tonight.

OMG That sucks!

I had a cat called Rosy. She had this problem, it was a lifetime thing that could never be fixed but she did indeed live a happy life till she was about three.

So why was the kitten put down?

This is terrible news. RIP poor kitty.

Edit: When you feel up to it, could you give us some details on what may have been wrong with the kitty, and like other posters, would like to know why he had to be PTS.
