Hi there, I'm hoping someone on here might be able to help me think up some kind of solution for my sick kitten. I am so sorry this is such a long post but I wanted to get everything in! Basically I have a 7 month old Maine Coon kitten who has persistent diarrhea. He's had it since before his second set of vaccinations at 12 weeks old (they had to be put off until it got better). He was given antibiotics at this point, which cleared it up for a couple of weeks maybe if I remember rightly (long enough to be vaccinated a second time anyway) but came back just as bad. I took him back to the vet, who gave me more antibiotics, which helped for maybe a week. The third time he went back the vet gave me yet again more antibiotics, some panacur wormer and kaolin gel. This helped again for about a week. They also gave him a scan, tested his poo and did blood tests. Nothing showed up at all. Sheldon is TINY and it's really upsetting, I'd say he maybe looks about 4-5 months old, rather than 7. The vet seemed pretty unconcerned and suggested 'failure to thrive' and said this would mean they'd put him down, so I'm pretty reluctant to take him back at the moment. If I thought he were suffering I wouldn't think twice but he bounds around with my other cats, purrs his head off and is the friendliest cat ever. He's just so SO little. Since the vets back at the end of August I've given him Pro-Kolin paste, starved him for 24 hours, fed him only tiny amounts of chicken (not all at once... I spread out each try quite a bit)... different things seem to help one minute and fail the next, it's very frustrating. I've been all over google trying to find anything that might help. He is definitely growing, and he looks lovely, but like a very miniature Maine Coon! He doesn't seem bothered by it but I imagine that's just because he's used to it :-/ Also I have three other cats, I have tried separating him, it did nothing. One of my adult females has slightly sludgy poo but seems unaffected, my other female is completely normal, and my adult male ranges between rock hard and slightly soft. Nothing seems consistent and it's making my brain ache trying to figure out what it could be. I have also noticed as soon as people come in the door he heads straight for the litter tray to poo - is this normal? I wondered if it might be related to nerves/stress since he tends to settle down for the evening if it's just me but if I have visitors he is in and out of the tray. Does anybody have any suggestions? And I was also wondering if anybody has had any experiences with cat nappies? I'm reluctant as I don't want to upset him, but I'm moving next week and there's cream carpets throughout and he refuses to clean himself around his bum area. At the moment I bath him whenever he needs me too, and the marks are easy enough to clean up off wood flooring, but on cream carpets I'm dreading it! - (I don't see this as a solution just as a means to an end until he gets better?) Please don't tell me to go straight back to the vet, he's a happy kitten, he eats loads and drinks well, and isn't phased by any of it.
