Why Does My Cat Pass Blood in His Stool?

Answer

Several intestinal parasites, including worms, can lead to blood in the stool. Some cats have Campylobacter or clostridia bacterial infections that cause colitis and this can lead to blood in the stools. Other cats avert their rectal mucosa when they strain to have a bowel movement. The mucosal tissue is easily irritated to the point that it will bleed. In some cases, the rectal mucosa will remain averted for a few moments or even much longer, after a bowel movement and looks like a pink ring of tissue around the rectal opening.
