We got rid of the mattress that would have his scent on it and he still continues to poop in their room. Today I saw his poop downstairs in the kitchen. He can poop in his litter box fine and the texture of his poop will be solid but when he poops outside it's always soft and today it had a bit of blood on itAssistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know what to do about this bleeding. I'll connect you ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the cat?Customer: No that is all
