How long does he have this?
Is he having normal bowel movements?
Is he eating?
I am sorry your boy has trouble but I dont think this is a serious issue.
It can be an infected anal sac, boil or fissure.
Apply very warm damp compresses a few tines a day. Next use plain neosporin or even vaseline on his anus and the lesion.
Make sure he continues too eliminate both urine and feces normally.
Feed him some canned food with a tablespoon of water added.
Please let me know how he is doing.
I hope he will be just fine.
Warmest best wishes,
No, its fine for him to lick vaseline or even plain neosporin (which is mostly vaseline) The same ingredient is in cat lax so it cannot hurt him.
Please let me know how he is later.
Best wishes for him,
Thats fine, just take as long as you need.
There is no hurry to accept an answer. I only care about your kitty. He is the only important thing to me.
I hope he will be just fine,
