Looking for a bit of insight before I venture to the Vet.
I have an 8 month old cat who has suddenly developed diarrhoea out of nowhere. I do not change her litter box at the moment as I'm weeks away from having a baby but from what my partner says her faeces have become watery, are browny-yellow in colour but have no odour to them. He also says its small amounts and there was one semi-solid poo (a very soft poo probably) that was small when he cleaned the litter box last night. She is not going to the toilet anymore than she normally would, is drinking as normal and eating as normal and is otherwise her normal, playful and happy self.
A little backstory, a few weeks after we got her from a shelter we discovered she had worms and treated her immediately (despite the paperwork saying she was covered for another few weeks) as well as our other cat and our three dogs. She had diarrhoea at this point which is where we discovered the worms. A little after that we changed her food and she again got diarrhoea but it cleared up almost instantly after we switched her food back to her normal diet.
We have not recently changed her food, she still gets the same food she has always gotten (aside from that one instance) which is the Hills Kitten dry food. We were feeding her some canned wet food as well which she was fine with for a few months but have stopped giving it to her since this new diarrhoea situation. We thought perhaps she'd eaten some of the other cat's food as he gets different food and maybe it had upset her stomach so we have been very vigilant about putting his food away when he is done and watching that she doesn't eat any. Last night I fed her boiled chicken and rice which she loved and she had the same again this morning.
I am just wondering if anyone has some insight or home remedies that we could try before we get her checked out. I have read you can add half a teaspoon of metamucil to their food to firm up their stools but have not tried this yet as I am a bit unsure.
We do plan on taking her to the vet if this continues much longer (it has been 2 days), but it is just a bad two weeks for us financially with a bunch of our bills due this week and next. Obviously if I notice a change in her aside from the diarrhoea (loss of appetite, dehydration, lethargic etc) I will take her to the vets immediately.
Thank you in advance and I apologise for the long winded explanation.
