    So I have been lurking the forums for a few months to try and find advice for different issues my 7 month old kitten Yoda has been having (and there have been ALOT of issues...lol but thankfully they've mostly all been fixed) One of the biggest was his constant mushy bordering on the line, and often times past the line, of diarrhea no matter what type of kibble/wet food he would try from Friskies to Royal Canine etc. Vet recommended the Hills w/d fiber food which really helped the most out of all the other kind of regular kibble/wet food combos I tried and produced pretty solid poop about 85% of the time. I had him on it for a months or so but it says it was recommended for weight loss/weight maintenance and I was worried he wasn't getting enough food in him despite me feeding him well over the recommended amounts. The ingredients were pretty horrible too and basically just tons of vegetables and meat byproducts but hey IT WORKED. After reading up on here about raw diets and different peoples success stories for kittens with mushy/stinky poop I decided what the heck might as well give it a try. Purchased some Stella and Chewy Duck Duck Goose and solid picture perfect poop for the last month usually about once a day and ZERO smell. I have to say raw really does work for those kitties with sensitive stomachs/digestive issues, at least it did for my kitty, and I would whole heartedly recommend it to anyone who feels they've tried everything and can't seem to find anything that works.

      Hi Gary,

      Thanks for coming out of lurk-mode. And giving props to raw. It's not for everyone, but when it is... yeah, it's awesome!

      Do you want to tell us a little about Yoda? Or post some pics?

      Cheers.

      Here’s a few pics of him. He’s currently 7 months old.

              Yes, that's the one I feed him. I usually feed him about 3 times a day. 1/2 to 2/3 a cup in the morning around 8am. Another 1/2 to 2/3 at 5pm then about 1/4 to 1/2 a cup around 10 or 11pm. Weekends He usually eats a bit more 4-5 times but smaller meals.

                @Gary
                Thank you for the feeding tips too!

                (I called the k9cuisine rep tonight -( down to earth service always by the same person answering the phone to help - small town feel amd really go the extra mile )
                They carry the Stella and Chewys chicken.

                She checked and is updating their site to stock the duck duck goose for me to order
                Thank you for the advise! Hoping my picky boy Batman will like it !
                He is impossible with getting him to eat anything wet !

                  @Gary welcome to sphynxlair. Yoda is a very handsome and adorable boy.

                  My elf girl Jade feels a little bit shy and embarrashed because of the shout out of @Yoda mom and @Xandria, but she must admit Yoda is very handsome. So a special hi from her to Yoda

                      Hi, sorry for not replying been busy last few days. I have not tried any other flavors but did just order the smallest size of the turkey one to possibly try.

                      Wow, pretty girl. She might be even bigger than Yoda is, although he's still a kitten. How old is she?

                        @Gary , look forward to Yoda's review of the Stella and chewy s turkey
                        If you don't mind me asking can you tell me where you order from?
                        Always like to have an alternative in case the source I buy from from is out of stock and need to get during hurricane season extra bags of food

                        Jade looks big on the pictures but she is really tiny. Yesterday people who saw her thought she was still a young kitten:). My sphynx boys are twice her size! She's 4 years old!
