Cat's Stool

What does a brownish yellow stool in a cat mean?

hi Linda, you are feeding a very good food,( this IS CANNED I assume?).........however IF the change was done suddenly it would cause a change in bowel habits and appearance...don't know about the strange color, but if it all happened about the same time than I wouldn't worry about it, just keep a watch on..
a sudden change in diet can cause diarrhea, so thats likely the cause of him pooing more often. if its still formed and not loose than thats great that he made the transition without many problems...♥

Hi Linda and welcome to the cat forum.  This might sound like a dumb question, but I take it your cat uses a litter box and the looks of the stool is unusual?  I ask only because my cat pottys outside and if I saw what you're describing, I might think it unusual.  Have you fed your cat anything different lately?

Hi Jade.  Thanks for getting back to me.  Yes I have.  I have been giving him Natural Balance Green Pea and Duck Formula for cats the last few days.  Could this be the problem and is there anything to be concerned about?  I figured this food would be good for him as he may have IBS.  The food also has been having him go to the litterbox alittle bit more.  I hope your cat is doing okay as well and look forward to hearing back from you.

Hi Opus,

Thanks for your response you have made me feel a lot better. I am feeding Madison the dry formula from the bag.  I am glad it looks like he is adjusting quite well to the food.  Just out of curiousity, do you feed your cats this as well?

NO Linda I NO longer feed dry food ever!!..........after my one kitty came down with FLUTD. after alot of reading I found out how bad this is for cats...especially male cats.

please read this site I am sending, it really promotes raw diet...but also gives all the reasons why not to feed dry food and  tells you what brands of can foods are the best in commercial foods. there are a few very good commerical foods avail. and Natural Balance is one, however please change to cans if at all possible for your kitties health.

My one cat is now on homemade food the other I can't get him to eat it no matter what I try, so he gets a diet of canned food mixed 30/70 with the homemade....he will reluctantly eat it this way...lol

Thanks for getting back to me.  My cat Madison has been eating the Natural Balance Sweet Pea and Duck formula for about 5 days now still mixed in with his old food but is getting slight diarrhea about 3 times a day but goes in his litterbox.  I am afraid to just give him the new food b/c of this.  Should I be concerned?

how loose are the stools? if NOT loose/watery I would keep on mixing...dont increase the amount of new food until poops are normal....usually normal is once a day and formed. IF poops are loose/watery than cut way back on new food or may need to discontinue. When starting a new food it takes the GI awhile to adjust, but never rule out that it could also be an intolerance to something in the food....keep us posted. ♥

Thanks again for getting back to me.  The poops are mushed together at this point at this point and he is going about 3 or 4 times a day.  I am mixing the foods about 1/2 and 1/2 at this point.  I will let you know what happens.

I was wondering, do you know if Natural Balance Sweet Pea and Duck formula good at controlling IBS?  Right now the stools look like they are slightly more solid even though he is still going a few times a day.  Hope you and your cats are fine.
