    Bunky has severe diarrehea and he can just be sitting still and leaks. It is so gross! He is about 2-3 months old. We give him hard food and no people food.

    Oh jeesh! I dont know what to tell you, other than maybe get him to a vet! Is he fully vaccinated? I sure hope he is ok....maybe some cheese...that blocks up my dogs, when they get loose stools.

    Give him some tuna/can catfood mixed in rice. Just enough to flavor the rice. That should bind him up some. If not, dribble a bit of imodium on it but just a touch.

    I'd get him to the vet just to be safe.

    Oh thanks! Our vet is cheap thank goodness. He wants to sit on our laps but we dare not let him. I even put a towel under him this morning.

    If the problem comes back, make sure his day to day food is 100% grain free. Cats aren't supposed to eat grain, they are true carnivores. It can cause some pretty bad digestive problems.

    I'm all for putting cats and dogs on a homemade food diet, but it's too much work for a lot of people. I have a recipe my vet and I worked out together. If you can't do that, just make sure you are grain free.
