I took my two male cats to the vet ~2 weeks ago when they were both not acting right. One is a 7 year old 17-pounder who was throwing up everything he ate! Upon x-rays we found he had a hardened hair ball in his belly which eventually passed, and he is back to normal. My other kitty is a 5 year old 10-pounder who loves to run, jump, and play. I was pretty sure he was having diarrhea problems b/c I had been finding big wet lumpy turds that he neglected to cover up. This kitty also has problems with peeing outside the box. If ever I leave a towel or furry rug on the floor, he will curl up on top of it and pee. The vet did a urinalysis to rule out infection and sure enough, he was clean. He definitely has some behavioral issues.
We wound up putting the second kitty on antibiotics b/c I thought he was the one with diarrhea. Now, 2 weeks later, I'm not so sure. I've been finding a loose turd in one of the 4 litter boxes I have, approximately ever 2 days. Today there was one, uncovered again, with a little bit of blood on top.
I spent $430 at the vet to get these 2 rascals healthy, and yet SOMEONE, i'm not sure who, is still having bad poos. I also have a female kitty who moved in about 3 months ago, who is large and in charge, but I really don't think she's the one with the problems. I really think it's my 10 pound kitty......... but he's acting purrfectly normal! He's eating, drinking, playing, and acting like his normal self......???
What should I do??? I guess part of me wants to hear "he'll be fine, it will pass, this happens all the time," but it's been nearly 3 weeks since I've been finding these sad loose turds in the boxes, and I don't know what to do! I'm going out of town over labor day weeken and don't want my absence to aggravate things. Any responses greatly appreciated, thank you.
