My cat is pooping liquid

by Katy

I just noticed yesterday morning that my cat who is 2 yrs old, was pooping liquid, most was in the litter box, but some got onto the kitcken floor. I recently brought him to live with me in my apartment. He use to live with my boyfriends mom, which there he was both indoor and outdoor car. now living with me he is just an indoor cat. I had some dry cat food here for him, but it wasn't the same kind he was eating there. but i wanted to use the rest of it up before getting new. Once i noticed he was pooping liquid i was planning on getting him the same food he was eating there. but i'm still worried. when I got home last night from worked he had pooped 3 times on my carpet and once in my bathroom. i'm worried about him..... what should i do?

Hi well this could be a combination of the stress of moving and the change in food.

You need to make sure that he does not get dehydrated, so make sure plenty of fresh water is available for him at all times.

Please see my web pages about cat diarrhoea it has some advice about giving their digestive system a rest for a few days (page two).

here is the first page

If the symptoms do not clear up in a day or two while you are resting his system or if he appears to be weak or disorientated then you must get him to a vets as soon as possible, as dehydration can happen quickly and can be fatal.

Don't worry though I'm sure with a few days rest and peace and quiet his system will settle down.

best wishes kate
