The change in food could have caused the runny stool ... but some cats do tend to evacuate their bowels and bladder right before they deliver. It comes from not being able to distinguish the feelings of the contractions with the need to visit the litter. I didn't read your other post, but do you have any idea of when she was bred? Is this a cat you found already pregnant or was she your pet that accidently escaped?

OK, I just read your original post about her -- sorry I didn't look before I posted before but I wanted to help as quickly as I could since you were online.

I would give it a day or so and see if the diarrhea doesn't clear up on it's own. Just make sure she stays well hydrated and if it persists, take her on in for a check up.

ETA: If the babies are moving around a lot, then you are probably getting pretty close. Keep a watch out for signs of contractions and make sure your girl has a safe, convenient place to deliver her little ones. Have you read the sticky article about what to expect and how to prepare? Here it is if you haven't read it yet:

Yes, some cats can and do have a little "morning sickness" but normally that happens early on in the term.

OK, give it until tomorrow and see if it doesn't clear up on it's own, but you might want to call your vet and see what he would advise. I think it is probably due to the food change -- unless you changed the food over gradually, it can cause an upset tummy when cats aren't used to it.
