Cat passing stools without being conscious of it?

My cat is 3 yrs old. Two days ago I noticed his inner eyelid was covering about half of his eyes. A day ago he started passing watery stools (yellow in colour and watery). He isn't conscious about this. It just happens. Still his inner eyelid is the same, with tears. He has not lost appetite. He still eats well and drinks well. Active as normal. He is an outdoor cat the only thing different is that he doesn't go gallivanting like before. We live in Sri Lanka which is a country in the Equator. It is very hot these days about 32C. Earlier I thought may be he has got dehydrated. I stopped giving him food for one meal then his stool passing stopped. But as I starter giving him food again, the diarrhea condition began. Also it doesn't stink (I mean the discharge). What is wrong with him?

Your cat is ill and needs to be seen by a vet, immediately.

There are many possible causes of the diarrhea which could have been caused by a bacterial or viral infection, inflammatory bowel diseases or allergic reaction from a certain type of food. It is important to have a vet examine him and give proper medication. Read http://pets.webmd.com/cats/guide/cat-diarrhea.

I suggest you get professional help. Anything read here is purely guesswork. I'm sure you don't want to guess about the life of your loved pet. Good luck

With all die respect, I rescue abandoned and abused kittens and cats. She lives in Ecuador and stated her cat lives outdoors. The cat could have lapped up contaminated water, gotten into a fight with another cat or
animal since she also stated an eye problem and most likely, doesn't have all the required vaccinations. You make a very valid point though, some members pretend to have a "medical degree". I posted my answer from experience. Enjoy your day! = )

You must be a very caring person helping abandoned animals.

Thank you. I think I am. Sometimes I
wish I didn't have such a sensitive heart regarding the welfare of all animals. Thank you for your kind words. Enjoy your day!

Marjorie, I meant "due" respect not "die". iPhone. Wish they would change the app so iPhones could rotate as they do with all other apps and features.

Marjorie, I hope you know when I typed "I think I am" it wasn't me being conceited. I meant to type "I try to be". I need to not be on here just because I am unable to sleep, recuperating from major surgery. Hope you had a peaceful day!

Living;
No problem!! I knew I liked you , I just didn't know how much ;) I didn't mean to offend you. I too rescue cats. Actually I'd have my own Noahs Ark if I could! That cat sounds sick I just personally don't take a chance when it comes to their health if I'm not pretty sure what it is. I suggested the Vet to her because it's impossible to diagnose without the ability to see the animal . You have a great day to and hope your on the mend soon.

Marjorie, why in the world would you ever think you offended me? When I reread my comment, since typed words can be misconstrued, when I saw "I think I am", it sounded as if I was being arrogant. This is why I clarified my comment. Your words meant so much to me especially due to this arduous journey I've been on since being backed over by a car. My "kids" eat better than I do at this time and G-d forbid when they are laying with me on the blanket and I have to get up should I dare disturb them. Crazy isn't it. You're a doll and I hope we cross paths here again. You made my day and again, thank you for your heartfelt comments. Enjoy your evening.

One other thing, it breaks my heart as I am certain it does yours that there are so many irresponsible pet owners on this site. One member asked a question regarding her dog being very, very sick for nine days. Nine. Makes me shake my head until it hurts. I've always said if I win the lottery (have been playing the same numbers for 15 years) I would purchase a huge piece of land and go to all the shelters and take all the animals and let them live "free" on the enclosed land with help, of course. I hope to "see" you again. = )

OMG, I have said the same thing SO many times re: winning the lottery and having lots of unwanted animals ;) how old are your children? Were you joking about ruffling their feathers( so to speak) and they get upset? What did you do spoil them so much they think everything is about them? Maybe it's just crankiness upon waking:) Anyway. Awful that you were hit!! By a car?
