soft stool/minor diarrhea

I have two adult cats who have had been having soft stool/minor diarrhea since day one in my home. It doesn't seem to bother them, both of them are chubby (one being 14 lbs and the other one 16 lbs) and very playful. They are 2 years old and I asked their previous owner they tend to have soft stools ( the previous owner feed them dry food). The thing is that their stool easily stick to their rears ( they are short hair) and not only their butts stinks but also they stains where they sit.. I am feeding them my homemade raw diet for almost 1 year now. Any suggestion?

Any change when you feed canned food instead of raw?

Pumpkin puree works for diarrhea and constipation

Have you tried plain canned pumpkin puree (not pie filling or with added sugar or spices)? Pumpkin works well for both diarrhea and constipation. Start with 1/2 tsp. and adjust amount until stool is at desired consistency.
