My cat keeps pooping out of the box a couple times a day
My cat keeps pooping out of the box a couple times a day... with diarrhea.
I have 2 cats. The cat Oliver I am having trouble with.
They share a cat box. And Oliver will poop outside the box, but then sometimes go in the box. It's a couple of times a day also.
The other problem with the poop is that its very runny. Like diarrhea really bad outside the box.
I was wondering if he is sick or what I should do?
This has been going on for like a couple of months. My husband has said we might have to get rid of him but my daughter is so attached to him.
Just need to know how to help my cat out.
This is not normal at all. Anytime prolonged diarrhea is involved, you should visit the vet. If my cat had diarrhea for more than 2 days, I'd be at the vet on the third day.
I mentioned some of the causes of feline diarrhea here
It could be something he's getting into, like a plant, food, or a household product (which can be poisonous), or it could be a cat food allergy, or it could be something more serious. If he roams outdoors, he may be getting into some poisons.
I would contact the vet right away and have Oliver checked out.
I hope that helps to give you some perspective. Please let us know how things go,
