Cat Got a "Potty Patch"
At least that's what my vet calls it....where they shave the hair on kitty's back end so he can go to the litter box without making a mess on himself. Snow Kitty had a very large mat back there, so this morning the vet tech got it off and also shaved him a potty patch and down his back legs a little.
When we got home and he came out of the carrier, I caught a glimpse of his backside and it looked awful! Maybe what I'm seeing is normal and it's just usually covered with hair, but his anus looked all dark, almost like it was bloody (or poopy, I guess) and his scrotum and urinary tract opening looked like they were bleeding a little as well. I'm not SURE....he obviously isn't wanting me poking around back there, but he sure looks a mess. Is this normal?
He's acting fine, other than maybe his back end is a little sensitive. He's choosing to lie down rather than sit.
