I caught our cat George today just as he was gobbling down a piece of cooked onion. It wasn't a big piece but it didn't stop me from getting worried!

Within an hour he was in the bathroom meowing and I found that he's now got diarrhoea. I've been on the phone with the out of hours vet and they told me to keep an eye on him and come in tomorrow if he seems out of sorts. They also told me to feed him some bland food and suggested chicken and rice.

We've given him this previously when he had loose stools due to food sensitivity (grains we suspect) and found that it didn't help his diarrhoea - more like the opposite!

This might be a silly question, but does rice count as a "grain"? I don't want to give him chicken and rice if it's gonna worsen his diarrhoea, but is the rice needed to "bulk it up"? Is there anything else we can give him as bland food?

Any suggestions are appreciated!

Geoffrey used to be sensitive to food with grains (might still be but we don't feed it!)... Anyway, we fed boiled chicken with the broth for a few days until he settled down then introduced his usual food again and by trail and error now have a gat balance of floods and no more tummy issues.
Try boiled chicken and broth for a few days and I hope he's better soon! :D
