Weird behavior and stool

by Tami
(Orlando, Fl, USA)



I just adopted a 2 year old domestic long haired cat, he is fixed, his name in Valentine and for the past 4 days we had no problems, but today he got scared all of a sudden and left a little soft stool pellet. He sleeps for a while then has weird twitches by his tail and will randomly get freaked out and run to another spot, it has happened 3 times today where he leaves a stool pellet behind. I don't know why he has started acting this way. I got him on the 4th of feb. it is now the 9th, it just started today and I don't know why or how to help him. Do you know what is wrong and what I can do to help him?

it could be caused by fleas or being allergic to something.

My old cat was allergic to flea bites so even though she may not have had fleas living on her if one jumped on from somewhere outside and bit her she would get these twitches which would make her run around crazily. we had to make sure that she was treated with spot flea treatment every month.

as for the soft stool , well this may or may not be related. It may just have been triggered by fear or if the cat is distressed by itching ect this could also have scared them too.

if you have not treated for fleas try that and see how they are after a few days. if there is no change or if the symptoms become worse then your best option would be to take them to see a vet to have them checked out.

best wishes Kate
