Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question about Biggy. Sometimes a cat can have a rectal prolapse - where the rectal tissue comes out when they are straining to go to the bathroom. At this time, it is good that things have gone back to normal with the appearance back there. It is important that she continues to not have this tissue come out. If it appears again, you can take a picture of it and then take her and that picture to your vet to have them specifically make a diagnosis. If this tissue is coming out and not going back in, it needs attention as it can dry out. They can have this happen if they are having persistent lose stools and are straining.
I'm very sorry for that. The question got posted in the cat veterinary category and the Tortoise description I though was a Torti colored cat. I'm sorry for that. I'm not that familiar with Desert Tortoise so I'm going to opt out to let another expert chime in.
I'm sorry for that mix up on my part! I'm hoping for the best for this girl!
