Some cats just do this. If you'd like the technical term, it is; idiopathic hematochezia of cats. It just means "cats have blood in their poop from time to time and we don't know why."

If there's consistent blood, with mucus or change in stool consistency, then you may be looking at a case of colitis, but with no other signs, it's probably no biggie.

Cheers,

Well, I'm glad you asked, because I don't get to say "idiopathic hematochezia of cats" very often, and it's my very favorite phrase that I learned in vet school! :lol:

If the cat is fine otherwise, not to worry. If it's really irritating to you (blood spots all over the house can be annoying!), we could try working with diet a bit. What's he eating now, and what's been tried?

Cheers,
Dr. Jean
