If his appetite is fine and he isn't lethargic or hiding, I would just wait it out and see if things resolve on their own. My cats occasionally get soft stool (don't we all!) and it doesn't amount to anything. Sometimes adding probiotics or slippery elm bark to the food can help, but I'm not usually concerned if the kitties are otherwise normal.

Have you changed his food recently? A sudden change in diet can upset their system. Hope Sammy is feeling better soon.

You should made sure he is drinking enough water so he will not get dehydration . I would call the vet if the runny poop last more than 2 days .
