peanut poops ALOT (i have yet to monitor it)... and her poops are very, very large. i say this is strange because she is smaller than my two so you'd think the piles would be proportionate!! and they REEK. tim was feeding her natural balance dry and he was drastically over-feeding her. he began gradually lowering her intake of dry about 5 months ago. i've begun feeding her nature's variety wet in addition to her dry for about three weeks. the other day, when scooping solids, i found one of her poops with a brown slime around it. i freaked, thinking it was a worm, but i think it was just mucous.
Colitis. You are describing stools typical of colitis.
This cat needs a grain-free canned diet to start with. No dry food, no canned food with any kind of grain. Only easy to digest food thay will produce much smaller stools and not more often than once a day.
You should also take her to a good, caring, competent vet and have her checked for urinary problems and get an X-ray of the intestines. At this point you need to find out whether the instestines are thickened.
Also, every veterinarian who deals with behavior problems and every behaviorist will tell you that bringing more cats into the household will only make elimination problems worse. It never ever goes the other way.
If I were you I would also put a great deal of effort into trying different cat litters for this kitty. Among other litters make sure you also try Cat Attract.
While you experiment with new litters leave the one she is using in place.
Just add to it, in one or more extra litter boxes, don't replace it until you find one she will want to use consistently.
Digestive problems are an important reason for litter box avoidance.
With urinating outside the box as well you need to find out whether a urinary problem is also involved.
For the record, cats are incapable of doing things because they are mad.
That's human reasoning and cats are incapable of human reasoning.
You have a sick and in all likelihood very unhappy cat. Both the health issues and the psychological issues will have to be dealt with. With patience, love, understanding and kindness.
from what i've observed, it's done out of spite...
No, it isn't. Let me repeat, cats are incapable of human reasoning that would result in angry or spiteful behavior.
We can start working on these issues in earnest after you have the results of the physical. Please be sure that a complete chemistry profile and CBC is also included in the exam. Get a copy of the results for yourself when they are in, you'll need it to look at certain things.
Make sure they do the urine test from a sterile sample. If her bladder is not full when you take her in, leave her at the clinic for a few hours until there is enough urine in the bladder for the sample.
That's the only way to get reliable results.
