Cat Health > really bad diarrhea

I have always and only fed her and my first cat organic food. Pequena only likes Wellness canned food, though. For dry food she seems to like any brand. When she had the diarhea last month I realized that I did change her dry food and I boought her Natural Balance, which is an organic brand but one I had never bought before. So I went and got her Blue which she has eaten before with no problems, and immediately upon switching her dry food the diarhea went away (thank god!)

But the diarhea is back again since yesterday. Still feeding her the Blue dry food and the Wellness canned food, so I thought maybe the new can of food I started feeding her thurs evening maybe there is some kind of bacteria or something in it. So I started feeding her a different can this morning but she still has been having diarhea all day long. For her dinner I put some probiotics in her food and she threw it up. So now I am waiting for my husband to get home from work to decide if we should take her to the emergency vet or not frown

I just found another diarrhea thread. Looks like cats can sometimes have it for even months? I feel a little better reading it, I was so worried about her and thought I should take her to the vet pronto, but maybe I will wait a day or two and see if it clears up first

I have been having really bad bouts of diarrhea. When my mom got up this morning she found it all over my litter box, outside the box and on the wall. It looked like I already had 2 maybe 3 different bouts of it. She cleaned it up then 10 minutes later I had it again. She gave me a probiotic and went to work. She had my mom-mom come over and check on me midday. I was fine, no more spells. She got home from work at 7 and was happy to find no more spells. Then just a few minutes ago, I had it again.

She has not changed my food at all and has not fed me any milk. She doesn't know of anything unusual that I might have ingested. She is considering taking me to the emergency vet tonight she has to work two jobs tomorrow and cant take me to the regular vet then. Any ideas on what could be causing this? I have never had diarrhea before and she has never seen cat diarrhea this bad before. I am not showing any other signs of anything being wrong. I am eating normally and still drinking water

Soft Paws are TERRIBLE!!!! I tried several times to get them on my cat. Lets just say to be able to properly get them on all her paws and keep them on there so the glue can dry I would have to tranquilize her!

Everytime I tried I was only successful at getting them on about 6 or 7 claws. And half of those ones I did get off would come off within a day or two, if not hours. And once the soft paw was so successful, that it would NOT come off! After two weeks of it being on I kept trying to get this one off (the only one still remaining on) I tried and tried for two weeks to get it off to no success. The claw grew too long and it was starting to dig into my cat's padding on her paw, so I had to take her to a groomer to get it off.

SoftPaws are awful, anyone who can successfully get them on all the claws and get them to stay on longer than a day is a miracle worker.

I gave up on that. I have double sided tape on parts of my couch, but I cant tape up my entire couch because then I couldnt use it. So my cat still scratches some parts of the couch.

My cat Pequena I have no declawed and I just live with her scratching up my stuff sometimes, and she is good about keeping her claws in when I am holding her and such so she never scratches me hardly at all.

But my cat Sasha I had to get declawed. All my efforts failed and I tried everything. And she never put her claws in, she would keep them out all the time so not only was she scratching up my couch and such but she was destroying my clothes and I had scratches all over me. I did the laser declaw which only removes the nail and the nail bed. It is much safer and more humane and she never had any behavorial problems from not having her claws, never had any problems jumping up on anything and she didnt seem to miss them at all. She still would "scratch" on my couch but that was her way of telling me that she wanted me to play with her.

I wish I didnt have to get her declawed and that some of the alternatives had worked but they didnt so I dont regret declawing her with the laser method and I gave her a very loving life.

my cat always licks and sits on plastic bags, and often wrestles with them as well

I finally figured it out. Pequena will go outside the box if there is even a tiny bit of kitty litter outside the box. If I sweep up all the litter bits that fly out of the box two times a day she is good and doesnt pee outside though there was 1 time she still peed but it was only a little bit and it was RIGHT outside the box so I think that was just her not getting her backside far enough into the box to completely make it in the box

natures miracle works really well for me! My cats were always fine with changing of litter without me even having to transition it. Though it has been a long time since I have. I use Swheat Scoop. I love it

do you ever watch the show My Cat From Hell on animal planet? I would suggest watching that show to get some ideas of what it could be from and what to do.

Hi everyone,

my cat pequena sometimes pees in the box, and sometimes she pees just outside of it. Sometimes I see her go into the box but she doesnt go in far enough and ends up peeing just outside of it. Other times she pees completely out of the box, but it is always within a 2 foot perimeter of the box. So I keep a shower curtain that goes underneath and around the box. She never pees beyond the shower curtain.

It is so frustrating because I cant figure out why she does this. Sometimes she will go like 4 days without doing it and I think she wont do it anymore, then she does it again. She started doing it over a year ago when I had my other cat, Sasha, and I used to see Sasha sometimes would bully Pequena when she would try to use the box, so I think she would be scared to use it so she would pee right outside the box, or only go in the box a little bit but not far enough, and she would run out the box immediately after she was done. Sasha passed away 11 months ago so I dont understand why she still does it. No, there is nothing medically wrong with her either.

She always poops in the box, though. Anyone have any possible ideas as to why? Or what I could do to get her to stop doing it?

It is such a pain to clean off the shower curtain. I live in an apartment and I dont have a backyard or a hose to hose it down. I have to take it outside and wash it off with buckets of water or leave it hanging on my balcony hoping it will rain to wash it off.

Capstar only kills live fleas. It does not kill eggs or larvae.

Best Yet from cedarcide.com was the only thing that worked for my cats. It was the only thing that killed all the fleas on them and in the house and in my car, and all the eggs. And got rid of all of them in 2 weeks. It is non toxic and you can spray it on yourself and your furniture and carpets and clothes. It doesnt leave a residue or oil stains.
