How long has she had diarrhea? Have any tests been done, such as a microscopic exam of her stool?

A couple of weeks. Haven't took her to vet
Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

There are many causes of diarrhea in cats; dozens or more. It can take some detective work, and some trial and error to figure out why a cat has diarrhea, and the best treatment.

If diet change has not made a difference, you could try starting her on probiotics. I like Fortiflora and Proviable which are made just for cats, and they are available without a prescription.

She could have parasites, or an infection. Since she is so young, I would start with checking for parasites (not all parasites are worms and most are microscopic in size) under a microscope.

Has she had any vaccinations yet?
