Unhappy cat toilet

Hi, my male cat has 16 yrs, and is always fit and active, although he does weigh approx nearly 7 kilo. I feed him and always have on Hills Science Plan which I purchase from the Vets. He eats ok and drinks enough water and urinates regularly, but this morning I noticed in his toilet which was solid, small streaks of blood, should I worry. Thank you for any help.

Hi there - well I would certainly give the vets a call, blood in faeces should always be checked out and at 16 he's not getting any younger so should have regular check ups to ensure all is well. I hope that he is ok

I agree with Heidi, it's best to take him to the vet & have this checked out.
I hope he's ok.

Hi, thank you both for your advice, but I must admit it has been the first time this has happened, but I also forgot to mention that on rare occasions he vomits water, could this be associated with the aforementioned complaint. He is still very active, and does not seem to be affected in any way, just sleeps more,... because of his age I presume? what do you think?

I think your beloved kitty needs a trip to the vet for a complete check up. Bring a fresh stool sample with you. He should have blood work and a urinalysis done during the check up, to see how his organs are functioning.

16 is senior, sure, but not so elderly that you would automatically expect a cat to slow down.

The earlier any problems are caught, the better the chance of fixing them.

Welcome to the forum, and please keep us updated!

I agree with all- I know you don't want to overreact but it sounds like a checkup would be good. Hope all goes well!
