    Diarrhea- HELP!

    I adopted / rescued a street kitten very recently who came to me with horrible liquid diarrhea and it took much longer then I am used to (with dogs, and my other kitten) to clear it up. It's still not 100%, and sometimes it's mushy again, but we're doing far better then we were. I didn't have...

    Is it safe to starve my picky cat into eating his damn food?

    I had a REALLY hard time with my kitten when I got her, she wasn't addicted to dry food or anything like that, she wanted wet food but seemed to hate everything I gave her. It was so frustrating. She'd take a few nibbles and leave it. I was throwing SO much food out!! In the end I have found...

    Kitten nibbles chin / neck? Squeaking?

    Aww, I love Pip Squeaker! It's so hard to resist him when he's squeaking for things. I didn't even think about them leaping off the chest when startled. That is something to keep in mind, thank you! It did remind me of nursing and it's mostly when he's sleepy. He hasn't really kneaded on...

    Was Probiocin enough? Stray kitten, extremely soft-to-liquid stools.

    I'm hesitant to think S. Boulardi could have had any effect that quickly, he'd only gotten one dose and he didn't get all of it either because he doesn't like it in his food and left a bit. But todays poo was great! It was semi-hard, no pastey bits at all; it even had the, uh, segmented look...

    Kitten nibbles chin / neck? Squeaking?

    Hi everyone! We adopted / rescued a stray kitten last week, and he's about 4.5-4mo old. He is EXTREMELY affectionate, just the sweetest thing. He will seek me out and crawl onto my chest where he will go to sleep until I move, purring like crazy. When he's doing this sometimes he will also try...

    Maybe it was gas! I'm not sure. It was very noisy. He doesn't really have gas otherwise, but I do feel his tummy rumbling sometimes! We had another poo - around 9 pm, so 9 hours between - and it was still formed! Maybe even a bit more formed then earlier's. Still not where it needs to be, but...

    Another poo update. Husband cleaned the boxes while I was asleep early this morning so I’m not sure what if any happened from 2am-11am, but he went as soon as i got up and it was back to mushy but formed (so better, again). I’m not sure why it’s not being consistent. But at least we’ve seemed...

    Was Probiocin enough? Stray kitten, extremely soft-to-liquid stools.

    Well... I guess I spoke too soon! :( He just went again ( about 8 hours later ), and it was sort of worse then ever. I say sort of because it wasn’t pure liquid as before, it piled cow-patty like and there were a few distinct shapes, whereas a few days ago it was just a puddle of liquid...

    I’ve never been so excited about about poop! We just had a shaped poo! It’s still super mush, but it’s his first poo with form! I even took a photo before he got it buried. So much better - everything else has been literal puddles.

    Well we finally had a poo. He went about 9 hours since his last one. Sadly, it was still just mush :( I was really hopeful since he was going a lot more yesterday. Winnie also went, and it was fine, so that's a good sign for now. I gave him about 1.5oz of the Weruva, and I put in 15ml of...

    Thank you for the response! About the Meow Mix, the bag is about 4 months old and was stored in an airtight container, so I wouldn't think it is expired. I haven't fed it for a few days anyhow, because as you said, I figured anything was going to tear his tummy up so might as well do it with...

    Was Probiocin enough? Stray kitten, extremely soft-to-liquid stools.

    Hello, I have another thread explaining we adopted a stray kitten on Wednesday (august 26th). A coworker got him off the streets and had him for a few days, but they had too many animals that were stressing him out so they asked if we could take him and we did. I have no idea of his history...

    Hubby brought home a kitten!

    I also think they're over it. Today, the only noises from them are when they are playing too rough. Winnie hasn't growled today at all, I don't think she hissed either. I just hear some yowling when they tackle each other, I assume letting each other know it's too rough. I walked into the living...

    Hubby brought home a kitten!

    Found some wet food he likes! Weruva Lamborghini. Glad to find something I already had some of, but I wish he liked some of the cheaper options too lol.

    Depression in a 5 yo prior outdoor cat now only inside?

    I don't have much advice, but maybe he wound enjoy some outside elements brought in? Maybe a few pots of cat-safe grass(it's easy to grow!), pots of catnip, and those two he can eat and you can also get some cat-safe plants to put in there. He might enjoy one of those perches that attach to the...
