hello any help

My first recommendation would be to have her stool sample checked by her veterinarian for intestinal parasites. They are very common in cats, especially young kittens.

Routine dewormers for kittens, often only treat for roundworms and hookworms. If she has a different parasite, like coccidia, she may need a different treatment.

You mention a light red urine like discharge. Did you find this on her body? the floor? the litter box?

Were you able to identify if this was coming from your anus or her urinary tract?
