Okay I'm just really scared and I wasn't sure if this is just a scam. Its too late to go to the vet
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 10 days ago.

Because it's rare to see any discharge from the vagina due to a cat's fastidious grooming, when you do see it it usually represents pyometra - pus rolling out of an infected uterus through the vagina and vulva. Pyometra arises 1-3 months after a heat period and is a surgical problem. Spaying should be curative. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
