I ran to the store this afternoon and as I got all my groceries inside I noticed Asher in the litter box and he was going #2 so I quickly grabbed a ziploc bag and scooped it up when he was done. I immediately took it over to the vet. Probably the freshest sample they've ever had!
Anyway, Asher does not have any parasites/infection/etc. The vet said it could be caused by stress, eating kitten food, or maybe he got into something in the house. He gave me some meds for diarrhea that I have to give to Asher 2x/day for 7 days and hopefully that will clear him up.
When I think back, I believe Asher had a bout of diarrhea a few years ago and I had to give him some meds for it then too. I think he might have a sensitive GI system.
