A. Blood in the stool can be a sign of serious problems. I would recommend taking your cat and a sample of the bloody stool into your vet for a check up. If the blood is "frank" blood, meaning it is bright, or red it could mean that there are issues with the colon. If the blood is dark, or more black in color, you could be looking at digestive issues. It is always important to alert your vet to any issues like this so that they can develop a treatment plan early. Good luck and I hope your kitty feels better soon!
