There is no reason to panic and rush to the vet's because of a few loose stools. However, having said that, if there seems to be a lot of mucous or even some blood in the stool, there is also vomiting, your cat is refusing to eat, seems unusually lethargic, is hiding and/or has become anti-social or undergone any other behavioral changes, that IS a reason to at least call your vet. Some vets will recommend integrating a "weigh-control" cat food in with the usual diet as these foods contain more fiber and will bind the stool together. Do not, however, suddenly change her diet and give her ALL weight control food as any sudden diet change can make the situation worse. Also, make sure she is not eating "people food" or anything else, like grazing on house plants, she shouldn't be doing. if the situation does not resolve itself by the end of the week or if it becomes worse and she developes true diarrhea, then phone your vet as soon as you can.
