added wet food.... bloody stool
Hi, We have had our 2 cats for just over a week now. They are 9months old. In their previous home they were fed Purina cat chow. I wanted to add wet food to their diet but thought I should start slow. I added Friskies (I know now not the best choice after reading more on these forums). They have had a large spoonful of Friskies (chicken and today 1st day of turkey) in the morning along with her normal purina cat chow for the past I think 5 days or so. This evening my husband noticed a small spot of feces on a blanket. He went to wipe it off before throwing the blanket in the wash and saw that there was red blood in it. We checked both cats and Latte had some red blood on the skin around her anus. She leaves a little blood on whatever she is sitting on now. I have not noticed any changed in the litter box. Could this be from the change in food? I want to switch them to a wet food diet or at least mostly wet but a bit hesitant. Maybe I should do it slower if that is the cause. any thoughts? I called the woman from the rescue group and she said it may be an irritated colon to keep an eye on her this evening and tomorrow.
