Snickers is like a water balloon LOL

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
We have one cat that is always gurgeling. It's like she is nothing but liquid inside of her. We feed her dry food but . . . .

Is this a problem? She's been this way for a few years and her weight is pretty constant. Is this a problem I should worry about? It's like her digestive track is always working. She'll jump on our bed and gurgel all night.

Comments? opinions?

That's weird! Have you told the vet about it?

i don't know as I would be laughing about it. Instead, I would be calling a vet and asking a professional about it and getting the cat in to be checked.

Were these posts edited? I didn't see anything about overweight....

Just the sounds of a sloshy tummy. Maybe the kitty just drinks alot of water. I know when I drink the recomended amount of water I slosh a bit too!

DragonLady - nope - not overweight, just, as you say - sloshy. Her stools are hard and HUGE (human like). She eats eucanuba(sp) and I swear a poop that big can not come out of a cat that small!

It could possibly be that she has troube digesting the brand of food you are feeding. Have you tried switching to another brand?

Yup, big ol' stools are usually a sign that the food has too much extra stuff that the cat can't use (usually grain fillers), so you might try a different brand. I can personally vouch for Innova and Solid Gold; all high quality ingredients that result in smaller, less smelly poops. I don't know that this has anything to do with the sloshiness, but it couldn't hurt.

geez - I thought we were buying the best food available with Eucunaba. I know many breeders (dog) that swear buy it - BUT - we might try doing that as they are real low in the bag.

There are better cat food out there, such as:
Royal Canin, Felidae, Nutro Natural Choice (I personally feed that one), Innova, Wellness - I am sure that there are others that I havent listed.

My loki who has food allergies can't handle corn, wheat, dairy etc. does wonderfully on Life's Abundance.
