Hi Mghnwa8

I'm Dr. Kris.

Your girl could be having diarrhea or it could be anal gland fluid. She may need a fecal exam and maybe blood work and radiographs to figure out what could be causing the diarrhea (if that is what she has). She could have ingested something she should not have, she could have a foreign body, bacterial or viral infection, intestinal parasites, cancer, organ dysfunction or hormone imbalances.

For now, don't give her any food for 24 hours. If you can, get some pedialyte and make sure she drinks it. He'll get dehydrated quickly if she has diarrhea so you need to make sure her fluid intake is adequate and the pedialyte will replace any lost electrolytes. Generally, cats should drink 50 ml per kg per day so you can work out how much she needs to drink per day based on her weight. After 24 hours offer her small amounts of a bland diet like unsalted tuna in water, boiled unsalted unseasoned skinless chicken breast (or hamburger meat) and some white rice (1 part meat to 1 part rice).

If the diarrhea does not improve in a day or so, if she begins vomitting or becomes lethargic or anorexic then get her to the vet.

I hope this helps.
