My four month old cat shakes once in a while and he has diarrhea should I be worried?
My cat sometimes shake and has diarrhea he is four months just got him three days a ago should I be worried? I should mention he plays a lot and eats a lot and is not dehydrated
Have you taken your cat to the vet to make sure it's actually a healthy animal? That's one of the most important things you need to do when getting a new pet.
If you just got him three days ago there's a good chance he's still nervous about his new surroundings. A kitten than young needs to feel super safe and secure - which means having people around who are calm and loving and make him feel safe and secure.
A change in his diet could cause digestive problems.
Only a vet could tell you if you have reason for concern. If there's a way to ask whoever it was you got him from whether he had the problem before that might help you figure out if this is something new for him. Cats that I've known often eat a lot when something has gone on that has made them nervous. Eating too much can cause a cat to have digestive problems. Based on cats I've known.. I wouldn't give a cat any of the foods/treats out there that have "greens for cats" in them. Every cat I've ever run into who has been given "greens-for-cats" food/treats tends to get digestive "issues" from eating that stuff. I only mention that because someone not too familiar with cats may think the "greens-for-cats" kind of food/treat seems like a healthy idea; so I thought maybe that could be ONE possible cause of the diarrhea "issue".

Why does my cat eat grass?My cat chews on grass when I take him outside (yes he walks on a leash!). I don't know if he swallows it or not. I usually pull him away before he has a chance to swallow it. Is he missing nutrients?
