Hi I am a new parent of two 3 month old kittens (Oz and Ninja). They have been through a lot since we've had them. My husband and I have been medicating them for the Upper Respirtory Infection with eye stuff, mouth stuff and nose stuff for about three weeks (switching from one (Science Diet)to the other (Purina)). Thankfully they are now both over it now! Ninja has an ear infection now so now we are getting experience with ear drops. He's five days away from ending the medication and getting a follow up exam. When I took Ninja in 5 days ago I had began to notice diahrrea in thier litter boxes. The vet asked me what food I switched them to and I told them Purina One: Growth and Development. I thought nothing of it and the vet made note of it in their computers. This morning I found blood in a stool. Concerned I watched them go to the bathroom later today and found that after both of them went to the bathroom, they both have blood in their stools. I just want them to get better and the vet we go to is closed today. Not having any sort of comfort I come to you all. I am concerned about still letting them eat the food (Purina) if it's bothering them (I think it may be the cause). I didn't realize that I was supposed to gradually switch them. I'm such a bad mother!! Of course I want them to have food if they are hungry but I don't want to make it worse!!! They have been through so much and all I want to do is have happy and healthy cats!!!
