My cat has a red and slightly inflamed bum area. Visit to vet or ride this out?

    I hate to sound like a smarty-pants, but if your own bum was red and inflamed, you'd probably appreciate medical help ASAP. This is not normal. She could have impacted anal glands which can be as painful as hemmorhoids or another sort of infection that will not clear up and only get worse w/o vet help. With the Holiday coming up, if it were my cat, I'd call my vet now and get her in. Then you can enjoy your holiday celebrations without having a miserable cat to worry about.
