I am new to this forum. I have a cat that I have basically adopted from a man that I do daycare for. She became pregnant because of his lack of knowledge of the feline reproduction cycle and he is never home. I agreed to keep her until the kittens were born and find homes for the kittens at which time she would return home to him. Well, I have invested much time and money in this little kitty and her new family! Starting from getting her on a good quality kitten food from having been on some nasty grocery store food to having to take her to the vet one day post pardom to have one or her deformed kittens euthanized. Now, she and the remaining kitten have seemed in good health until I noticed that she is having bloody stools that are occasionally loose. I have two other cats of my own and am quite sure that at this point, anything that she make have has most likely been passed to my two cats. Does anyone know what could cause the bloody stools? As this is not my cat I am reluctant to spend much more money on this kitty for vet visits. Her owner is not very willing to fork out much in the way of vet care. I care about her and the 2 wk old kitten and am hoping that some one has some advice. I have had dogs with coccidia that exhibited the same symptoms and I treated them with Albon, which I still have. Is that safe for cats?
