Dear Catster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Catster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

    There are many things that can cause persistent diarrhea, ranging from parasites to food allergies to other internal problems. You really need to take your kitty to the vet for a full checkup.

    Your little buddy does need a full check up if he hasnt had one with some fecal tests. But if all of thats fine, try switching to a raw diet. It's not an easy task but I had the same diarrhea problem with both of my kittens (minus the house soiling.) You can get info here and and It cleared up with the diet change. Regarding the leaving piles everywhere. He may be cramping up, getting those diarrhea urges and just going. If he's peeing in the litterbox then he's still box trained I'd say. Something isn't agreeing, sounds like his gastro problems may be allergy related. You should join Catster if you haven't already, we can really help you here with this. They did with me.
