Soft Stool

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My new kitty Dora moved in with us about a month ago. When she first moved in I noticed her stool was very soft. I at first attributed it to nerves, as I did her gassiness. But it has been a month and though the farting is less frequent her stool still seems very soft. (at least I think it is hers cause the 2 kitties share a box) She shows no behavioral signs of feeling sick and is a very playful and loving kitty. I am feeding her Nutro kitten wet food twice a day, she wont eat dry food.

Does anyone have any ideas what this could be? I'd rather avoid taking her to the vet if possible she isn't good with feild trips.

She's about 7 months old now. I e-mailed her foster mom to see if she noticed anything before she came, trying to see if it is a new problem or an old one.

I love your cat naming scheme btw! LOL

Good luck finding out what the problem is. Sometimes its diet, stress, worms, illness.. I hope you find out its nothing serious.

i asked her age because Cable is having the same problem - she's 6 1/2 months. when i first got her, the vet said it was normal for kittens to have soft stools, but i would've thought she'd've grown out of this by now. but since yours hasn't, maybe it's still normal.
thanks for the compliment! it all started with Pixel - i saw the name in a book & loved it, but had 2 kitties so had to come up w/another appropriate name, thus Mouse. then i was stuck with continuing w/Cable!

Oh that is very comforting! I was sure she was going to have some horrible disease. Maybe it is a grey tabby thing, Dora looks just like your Cable. I'll probably still get it checked out, but I hope it is a "normal" thing.

We're doing a theme too Shinobi means spy in japanese and Dora is short for Kodora which means little tiger . The second one was much harder to come up with.

cute names!
let me know what the vet says - i was thinking of taking Cable tomorrow, but she seems to feel just fine - i'm more upset than she is, 'cause i have to clean the soft poopy off the rake on the littermaid!
