Baby Sister and I had the same problem when we were very little. It went on for weeks. My humans tried everything. Finally, the vet put us on W/D cat food (kibble). It is a prescription, and not cheap, but it fixed us right up. He said it was because our systems couldn't tolerate regular food. Now we eat regular food and get just a little W/D to supplement our diet to keep us '...right as rain...'

Stay away from wheat and corn gluten...that's nasty stuff...

I too am new to Catster. Welcome to you Angus. My human is a horse person... Appaloosas and Quarter horses. She has lots of experience with cats, but she's new to this social media stuff. So, I have a couple of questions. The number of views means people who have visited my page? How do you invite other members to join my group Chausie Cat Afiicionados? I noticed some kitties have paws icons on their page...how does one get those?

We've had some really bad issues with our Chausie kitties and diaherra when they were quite small. So much so we took them to our vet and he said because we rescued them before they were weened (a good samaritan found them after their mama was hit on the road; we adopted them)their systems had not developed enough to digest regular food. We put them on W/D which is a prescription diet, so it isn't cheap, but solved our problem (the kittens are now a year old).

Now we feed Wellness (and supplement W/D) cat food which is all protein...no cereal or gluten. It too isn't cheap, but we find we need to feed less of it because they get filled up on less. The kibble is very small and makes it easier to eat.

We try to stay away from canned food which seems to be too rich for their systems and also anything with cereal as the first ingredient. Definitely no wheat or corn gluten (our cats vomited constantly). No gluten, no problem.

Chausie > Where are the Chausie Folks?

My human saw the profile of the Chausie on Cats 101 this past Saturday and realized we were Chausies.
She was so amazed, as amatter of fact, she was prompted to create a page on Catster. You'll find me and the rest of my family.

My human wants to open a dialogue with fellow Chausie owners, but was decidedly disappointed to see the Chausie forum has had no activity for two years.

Surely there must be more Chausie folks out there. We'd like to hear from you. You can also join my group Chausie Cat Aficionados here on Catster.
