My baby shadow (cat) is 3 years old, tonight I noticed that her bum was really pink almost a red and there was what looked to me like really soft cat litter hanging out, I took some toilit paper and got rid of it very lightly, and it really seemed to bother her I would almost say it hurt her...? but after I was done she seemed fine... I am really nervous long ago I had a cat that died from something called sand and was wondering if this had anything to do with what I seen on her tonight??? I use clumping cat litter if that helps any??
thanks in advance for the help

What is her stool like. Could it be possible that she ate something she shouldn't have. Is it possible that she had swallowed hair and some didn't come out all the way and got coated in litter. If she were trying to get rid of it the area may have become irritated.

it seems normal, but there are two of them, I plan on watching her tomorrow when she goes to use the litter box, its solid but I cant be 100% till I watch her.

Does she have long/short hair?
