Histiocytic ulcerative colitis is a bowel disease which causes the lining of an animal's colon to thicken, with varying degrees of ulceration and tissue loss to the superficial lining. The thickening is due to the infiltration of various cells in the layers under the lining. Proctitis, conversely, is inflammation of the anus and lining of the rectum. Some of the symptoms that may indicate inflammation of the colon or rectum are frequent bowel movements with only a small amount of stool, and prolonged straining after a bowl movement, as though the cat needs to pass more. Inflammation can also cause the stool to vary in consistency, from semi-formed to fluid, to diarrhea.

Does Your Cat Have Anal Gland Problems?

Nobody wants an irritated bum. The pressure she feels may be a result of something as benign as not enough fiber or as severe as rectal cancer. Most kitties enjoy a quality, dry cat food and a bit of self-cleaning several times throughout the day. Sometimes, though, that dry food and excess fur she ingests during grooming can literally dehydrate her body, thus causing her to become constipated.
However, sometimes her bum gets red and inflamed making her scoot and scratch; what a bummer. Several culprits may be responsible for her unwelcome public suffering. Dry cat food is notoriously, well, dry.
