My cat boots seems to have a very red and swollen anus (bum hole) I noticed he smelled like poop and i looked and he has some poop stuck to his fur around the anus and He seemed very senitive about the area and wouldn't let me clean him up. In fact he hissed and scratched me. Which he never does. im wondering if I should be alarmed or just wait a few days and see if he gets better. Thought maybe he ate something that made it tough to pass. the litter box seems to have nothing unual in it.
   
Should i call the vet right away?

I would call the vet and ask if you should bring him in, if he's constipated or irritated at least the vet might be able to give you something to make him more comfortable.
