Hi. Check out the yahoo IBD group. Great info there. 
It's possibly a food allergy. You might try the canned foods suggested at 
www.catinfo.org if making home made feels overwhelming.
Depending on size of stool and frequency, the vet should be able to determine 
if upper or lower intestine and treat accordingly. 
It sounds like your vet has a good plan.

  For her diarrhea, the old vet used Metrondiazole and Albon. No parasites were 
found.  The new vet tried new food (Science Diet ID) along with Clavomox. She 
also dewormed her again just in case. Ashley has gained 2 pounds in the last 
two weeks since the visit with the new vet, but her poops are the same. 
Possibly the dewormer helped.


  I just got off the phone with the vet, and she suggested that we put her back 
on her regular food that she's used to for 2 weeks. No meds. Then I'll have a 
stool sample sent to a lab for further testing (once all the meds are out of 
her system). Then we'll see what could be in her. If that doesn't work, the vet 
said we might have to do a scope. We'll see. Time will tell.


  I guess this is really not the time to try to find a home for her. I'm 
probably the best one to keep her since I know what's going on, what's been 
done, etc.


  Maybe I could just find a home for Nonie (healthy) to alleviate the stress.

  Also, what has been tried?

  I saw a nice list the other day, but can't remember where - will have to 
look.  Never heard of FORLs, what's that?   Have you tried any of the recipes 
in Dr. Pitcairn's book for her?

  Hi All,


  Just wondering if anyone knew of sanctuaries that will take special needs 
kitties. My poor Ashley (foster kitty) still has diarrhea, and they suspect she 
has feline odontoclastic resorptive lesions (FORLs). I want to find a good home 
for her, but right now I'm not able to find anyone around here who'll take on a 
special needs kitty. I just want her to get as much attention as she deserves.


  She's not FeLV (tested twice), and she seems healthy otherwise.


  I don't mind taking care of her, but we have 5 kitties in the house (2 that 
need homes), and now we're expecting (me, not any kitties). I'm not sure how 
we'll all fit into the house down the road. There's constant wrestling and 
fighting all night long (play fighting), and I just need to alleviate a little 
stress. I love our two foster babies, but I know we can't handle 5 forever 
(financially or emotionally) until we have a bigger home and more $!
