Either way, after consulting Dr. Google, I have determined that the best course of action is to withhold food for 24 hours, while providing plenty of fresh water. If the diarrhea doesn't clear up, I will make an appointment with our actual vet (no offense, Dr. Google). If it does clear up, I will open a new bag of dry food and start them off with just that until they seem like they are back to normal.
You know, normal for them.
In the meantime, I feel like such a heel. As I type this, both cats are staring at me pathetically from the doorway of the mudroom, where, on a normal day, they would currently be enjoying their morning can of wet food.
Thank goodness I leave for work in a few minutes and won't have to look at those pathetic faces.
Anyway, fingers crossed that this will work and that they will feel better, soon; I really am not a fan of cleaning up liquid poo. I know, who is, right?
Please don't tell me if there are freaks in this world who are fond of that particular chore; Guinness is, as you can see, a long-haired cat, which, requires that I assist in the cleansing of the butt area following a session in the litter box and, frankly, I am already grossed out enough for one day.
Feeeeed us....we are starvingggg....
