For the past 2 weeks George has had EXCESSIVE diarrhea. At first, it wasn't frequent, but now it's several times a day. I had him on Wellness Core(he still had some diarrhea with this brand), but I ran out and Shawn picked up Wellness Salmon. After having to bathe him more than once daily from him being covered in _____(well; you know) and having to clean the carpet, several of his blankies, and my bedsheets I decided to go to the Petstore one night after class and purchase another brand of cat food. I ended up buying Spots Stew for Sensitive cats and I have been mixing it in with his Wellness Salmon. It hasn't helped though, and he is still having diarrhea. I, at first thought it was the change in food, or possibly that he sneaks the other cat's senior formula food at times, but now I really think its something else. Its crunch time now at school and I have been extremely busy studying and working. Shawn has also been very busy. I'm just at a loss, and I'm hoping he doesn't have anything serious. He has been growing a lot of rougher hair lately; which made me freak out about the possibility of FIP. He's 6 months now. If he contracted FIP from his cattery wouldn't it have shown up earlier? I have a feeling I'm probably over freaking out, but he's my baby. I'm going to try to take him to the vet tomorrow between finals. It will be tight, but he needs to go to the Dr.
