We have a problem with our cat which, apart from everything else, is a little embarassing. He is about 2 1/2 years old and we have started noticing small pellets of pooh here and there around the house every now and then. They are about the size of a rabbit dropping and initially we thought it was a blob of mud but now we're sure it's coming from him. He and his sister have a litter tray permanently available which they do use particularly at this time of year as the catflap is locked from dusk till dawn to keep them in. Cats are normally so clean and we've owned cats for many years but never had anything like this before. Any ideas anybody?

Sure its not mice or rats? Sounds too small for cat eggs
#2
Have you changed their diet recently?
#3
If you have more than one cat then why are you 'blaming' one in particular?:? and as said above...are you sure it isnt something else :?
#4
Do you own a rabbit?
#5
Cat eggs??? :/
#6
For example, we've found them in the morning in his bed and it seems that he doesn't even know he's done it. Almost like it's just dropped out, so to speak. Their diet hasn't changed and its definitely not mice or rats. They are terrific mousers and catch anything with a pulse that comes within range! And no we dont own a rabbit.

Bizzare :?

If you've got a good vets, maybe you could give them a call and ask to have a quick chat with a nurse cause you;ve got a quick question about your cat, and then ask the nurse if this is 'normal' or a common problem, then go from there.

Interesting. Seems I am not alone. Found this I guess I should have googled before asking, but might help others.

Now here's a thing, we had the same with our kitten (well cat 18 mos) Trigger, just two weeks ago. We knew it was him and not his sister btw. The vet said he was probably stressed (yeah I know!) and possibly it was the firework noises, got to say he always runs away from the hoover so it's quite probable. He recommended a product called Feliway , which is a natural spray to prevent and reduce stress (I know, I know) and before that to clean all cat level entry areas with surgical spirit. It was quite expensive £23 for 60ml but worth every penny. Now it may have been a coincidence but the little cat poos have stopped (for now and I hope I'm not tempting fate here). So worth a pop. There was a post earlier today with 20% off at Vet Pet or something, can't remember the company, hang on and I'll put a link in and they may have it or I normally use VetUk who definately will have it. Hope this helps, you are not alone as they say!

Kingy withoout knowing age/ health history of the cat, i would say these are in effect "cling ons". If not then it could be behavioural.
I suggest trimming around the cats backside, otherwise if they becomes a build up, you will have noend of problems such as maggots, infection etc. If you need any more help i'll try my best. Although i am qualified in Feline natures my profession lies soley with canine but i will help as much as possible.

Also i have NEVER heard faeces referred to as eggs.

Yes, though oddly she never seems to suffer from, hairballs or anything like that.
