So over the course of the past month or so I successfully and gradually switched my 2 maine coons over from Friskies to Blue Buffalo, and they were doing well. (Previously in the past we had serious diahrrea issues when taste-testing new foods on them without gradually switching them over).
They've been doing just fine on the Blue for a couple weeks now but my bigger guy just came down with quite possibly the most disgusting digestive problems - poor guy. It was a huge mess to clean up this morning :(
My girl (his sister) is just fine. Historically, he's been one of those who can't free-feed - he just keeps eating and eating while his sister just nibbles at what she needs, and that's it.
I am suspecting that he's going overboard with eating, and this might be causing the issue since there've been no other changes to their diets. There aren't any plants or things that they could be eating - I've triple checked. Is it possible that eating too much (I know Blue is much 'richer' than Friskies) cause diahrrea?
I'm trying to figure out how to limit his food intake without depriving his sister. Someone on here suggested making a feeding area for the smaller cat that only SHE can get into (because he's too big to fit ;)) - I am seriously considering going that route.
Has anyone had any personal experience with this? I just want to get my kitty better :(
