Some more info for you (although it pertains to humans, the concept is similar for cats): http://ibdcrohns.about.com/od/relate...mucusstool.htm
I thought the same thing too when I first read (hence my question of where it was coming from), but 2 tablespoons is a lot for a cat, and it is not usually clear, more like the colour of the mucous from your sinuses when you have a cold.
