White Poop?!

HI everybody....

I was just cleaning a litter box and I noticed a lot of white poop in it....Is it normal?

I have two female cats (7 month and year and half). Their behavior didn't change , they eat a lot , and I didn't change their food...

Thanks!

Hm... unless you feed a diet with a lot of bone or bone meal in it, I'd say its probably not too normal.

You may want to bring in a sample to your vet and have them take a look.

Well I don't think that's it.

I just meant that with a regular diet of bones and bone meal, after a while (like a day or two of drying out) the poo will turn whitish and crumbly. Plus, I've heard it with dogs and it might be different with cats.

I still think you should have the vet look at it. Especially since you saw "a lot" of it.

Ok... is a lil confused... I remember being told when I was little that cats shouldn't be allowed to eat bones cos they can splinter and choke them or something.... Sooooo are they allowed bones or not? lol

I feed my cats raw meaty bones, it's the base of their diet. Cats are well equipped for eating RAW bones since that's basically what they've been developed to eat, small prey contain meat, bones, organs etc.

COOKED bones however, I would never feed. Cooked easily splinters and do make quite hard and sharp edges that can hurt the cat.

Of course bones are always a risk, you can't get away from that, but my cats do really well on this diet so I have no intentions to change it. I no linger have to brush their teeth, they smell fresh from the mouth and they LOVE wotking on those bones
