    While cleaning today, I noticed several little black (looking) specks on a quilt on the couch my cat sleeps on basically all day, every day. The speck looked black, but streaked reddish-brown and were on the surface of the quilt with no bleeding. I couldnt quite scratch them off though. I recall David once mentioning that any reddish color means its not fecal, but better safe to calm my nerves.

    Not fecal, right?

    Not an expert. Any advice I give is information gleaned via anxiety-fueled research of credible sources and expert posts here. Please research all advice before treating and consult a professional.

    Depends on the fabric. This particular quilt isnt super absorbant.

    Hi,

    Too orange to be faecal unless you are talking SCROTUS.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks David! That gave me a good laugh. I might rather have BBs than him in my house, I think!
