If you look under the health section of www.icatcare.org there is a section on TF and also details labs in the UK that carry out tests. Might be worth contacting them to see if you can send them samples for testing.

Good luck.

Raiden's poop yesterday finally looked completely normal, but that may not last long. He's always finding something to munch on outside -- he's even eating leaves! He also licks the asphalt on the road! I try to stop him, but when he wants something, it's hard to stop him.

I keep finding lizard body parts around the house (ick). They are on the patio and always get in the house. The cats eat them so there is an occasional tummy upset. With the probiotics they stay pretty regular though.

I'm so sorry to hear it's TF. It can be taken care of, although it takes a while. There are countless members here who brought kittens home from the breeder and the kitten was diagnosed with TF -- one of them had TWO kittens with it. You're in for a fun time with the meds. Just remember, it's not the kitty's fault!

And, Jill, you live in south Florida which is rampant with lizards! I remember my kitties bringing them home and inside the house -- alive! Then the chase is on. Any reptile is creepy to me.

Some of them look like baby alligators. In the summer they line up against the screen mostly on the outside and the cats jump and try to knock them off. Little ones slip under the door or are born inside the patio/house and the cats get them right away. It is impossible to keep them out. I open my front door and they drop from the top of the door and run inside, unknowing what their fate will be.

Last weekend there was a pretty big iguana outside the patio with spikes running down it's back. It was about 3 feet long and right next to the screen all day. The cats kept walking past it without batting an eye. I couldn't figure out if they couldn't see it or were uninterested. It sort of blend right in with the rocks and succulents I have planted out there.

Big lizards are the worst! When I was a kids, it was fun to pick up the chameleons and watch them change color. Not any more! We do have some lizards here in Nashville, but not many.

Hello,
we have two boys - 6 months old. And they have still soft/ sometimes running poo.

They was fed with dry RC Kiiten and Cosma nature wet food at the breeder.
After that we change dry food by mix of Applaws Kitten, Acana Grassland and Orijen Cat & Kitten. Biggest part of Applaws. Dry food they have in bowl whole day.
And each day they have a wet food in evening (about 100g), two days Cosma nature ( 75% meat nothing else - chicken, tuna, shrimps) and one day they have fresh meat from freezer (mix of beef, chicken, chicken liver or heart).

And they have still soft/running poo.

Now I try give them only one type of dry food. It caused maybe little improvement, but they haven't fine poo yet. I think that Applaws have worst reaction.

I try this about one month.

And I don't know what another i can try.
I don't want eliminate neither a wet food nor dry food. I tried to feed only by fresh meat at evening, but it didn't work.
Or how long i must doing it?

Do you have some advice? Thank you!

I'm guessing it's not the food. If it were a reaction to the food, it seems unlikely that they would both be suffering from the same food allergy (that would be quite a coincidence!). It's more likely a parasite. What has your vet checked for? Also is there a really strong, un-godly smell when they poo?

They had 4 cycles of antiparasitic when they were kittens. So i think they haven't parasites because they are outdoor cat. And meat which I give them is freezed for 14 days. But yes, it didn't checked by vet.

And it is true that one of them have more fine poo. But not still completely fine.

And smell? I don't know, poo smell like a poo. They are my first cats, so i don't know that a smell is normal or not. But i think that it is normal smell.

And I have another one question: How many times per day the 6 months old kitten make a poo. Because our boys go to the litter box two times per day -morning and evening. Because about 3 years old cat of my friend make a poo once per two days.

Thank you!

:lol: Well, I know for Giardia and TF the smell is overpowering, and bad. Like fill-up-the-entire-room-with-stink-and-make-you-hold-your-nose-and-immediately-vacate-the-room sort of bad! So it doesn't sound like that is the case.

Still though, this is the kind of thing you should see the vet about. If it is the food, then there is a pretty straight forward way to figure that out. Basically there are foods that you can buy, or your vet can prescribe, that don't have *any* of the ingredients of the foods that they are eating now. So your cats stay on the new food for a month or so, and that will tell you pretty definitively whether any of the stuff they are currently eating is causing the problem. And if you find that this is the case, then you can introduce things back one thing at a time to figure out what is the culprit. But like I said... TWO cats both having the same problem, I dunno, that would surprise me if that were a food allergy. If you wanted to try just one thing right now though, I'd recommend removing the shrimp and tuna from their diet. Seafood often seems to cause problems with cat's digestive system for whatever reason.
