    I have a 2 year old tom that was acting like he was having a heat stroke this morning. Very red head, panting, and just saw him poop white runny poop. We've been having bad storms here over the last few days. Is it stress? He's in a pen by himself, quiet area. Also he is not gobbling at all which is unusual for him.

    In my experience, the combination of white runny poop and panting would indicate dehydration. If he will drink, add some form of electrolytes to his water and make sure he is getting out of the heat.
