Default Hi everyone ..... my kitty got a tummy issue.. so any help is appreciated

Hi Everyone,
My one cat lacey (4 yrs old) is having some tummy issues. We moved a couple weeks ago, I found a vet that has great reviews however they close early on fridays, so I'm going to try and get her in tomorrow. I am just posting to see if any one has any ideas.

I came home today to find explosive diarreha all over my shoes in my closet. She does have stomach issues so I have her on an all natural diet that is also grain free. She has been doing geat on the food, so this is her first accident. My only concern is well it was pretty much everywhere, but also there was some mucus in it. I havent noticed it in the other cats because the litter usually covers it all up. I have noticed it however in my dogs poop once or twice,, that their poop is kinda cased in it. We just moved into an old 1920's apt, its in decent condition, however a few things need to be fixed and the paint we believe has lead in it. I did google lead poisoning in animals, but didnt really come up with anything to the symptoms she has. She is eating and drinking well to my knowledge. I have 3 cats, and leave food out all the time so I'm not totally watching. We have no plants in the house and cleaned it up pretty well when we moved in. She hasnt gotten into anything i can think of because the garbage is under the sink out of sight. Just dont know. Just posting to see if anyone has had a like situation, or any thoughts on it. I appreciate your help.

Kim

Hi Kim and welcome! I am sorry to hear about your kitty's illness.

The lead paint sends a red flag, if your cat is in the habit of licking or eating random things, is she? Lead poisoning might be an emergency situation though, if you suspect that you'd better get her seen tonight.

Or you can call the Animal Poison control center at:

1-888-426-4435


It may just be the stress of the move causing this, if she is acting okay otherwise. If she is eating and drinking, so that dehydration is not a danger, it might be okay to wait until tomorrow morning.

Some probiotic may be all she needs, to help things settle, but definitely get her in tomorrow.

I hope you can remove all the lead paint soon?

Please keep keep us updated on Lacey.
