Hi guys, I have a kitten that is feeling slightly under the weather, and as I have never owned cats before thought I should ask for some assistance! Both kittens were wormed about 4-5 weeks ago by the vets and I was told it wouldnt need doing again until I took them in to be neutered about 3 months later. When I got home yesterday and went to let them out I noticed a small pool of clear fluid with 2 worms in, im guessing one had been sick. I rang a friend who has some kittens and and she gave me some liquid wormer to do both of them, since that I have noticed that Jackson has diarrhea (it contained worms) and one of them has been sick again, this time food but no worms, im guessing that was Jackson too. They both seem fine in themselves, playing, eating, drinking, purring and Jacksons gum colour is good and he isnt dehydrated. My question is, is the diarrhea and sickness that Jackson has due to the worms or does he need to see a vet? The other possibility for the diarrhea is at the beginning of the week we had to buy a different type of cat food as they were out of stock of the normal we feed them, it was only 2 meals though as I got the normal from elsewhere, they were fed it on Monday night and the diarrhea started yesterday afternoon - is that a likely cause??
