Our new cat (Lloyd, who we've had about a month now) always seems to have runny poops while Frankie's are always "normal" looking. I've looked, and there are no parasites in Lloyd's, and he runs around with lots of energy, drinks lots, seems very happy. Should I be concerned?

Your new lil guy may have worms, parasites or bacterial infections that are not viewable to the naked eye. Runny stools are generally a sign something isn't right, so you may want to take him into the vet to have a full panel done to rule out anything harmful.

It could be a parasite, and it could also be something related to the food. Not all kitties can digest all foods equally.

It's definitely something to be concerned about as living your life with the runs is no fun.

I would definetly check for parasites but also for food allergies my cat had the same problem, we had blood tests done and it showedshe had a chicken intolerance.
