well...capote had a bad night last night. He never poops in his crate, but last night was an acception. We've been fighting off diarreah all day yesterday...no clue why. He's eating the same stuff he's eaten since I've had him and I didn't change anything up yesterday.
I woke up at 4 to the worst smell..ever. (his crate is right next to my bed) ..and discovered him next to a pile of poo. Before I could get out of bed he'd already put 3 paws in it in his excitement that I was getting him out. So I had to wash off his feet (yae 4 am foot baths) and stick his bedding in the washing machine. He NEVER goes to the bathroom in his crate..he's done it ONCE since I've had him and it was just after I set up his crate and he wasn't used to it yet.
Well..once he was all washed up and I put in a blanket to substitute for his dirty bedding, we went back to bed. 2 hours later, after he was walking around all night (his nails were driving me crazy on the bottom of the crate) I thought I smelled the nastiness again..but when I looked down and didn't see anything.
Well..he hid it under the blanket. Cause when I took him out this morning, I came back to clean out his bed and it went 'plop' ..right onto my carpeting.
Lemme tell ya. I feel rather dirty right now.
I'm gonna keep an eye on his stool for today..if it's still loose we're going to the vet.. I haven't changed his diet..he doesn't have much of a reason for it to be loose.. Though I may have just put a wee too much water in with his kibble..
