    Constipated? Watery poop

    I heard a strange sound I honestly thought my cat was throwing up but he wasnít. I checked my snakes and found watery stool in one of their tanks. I just cleaned their enclosures so I knew it was her she had her tail bent like she needed to poop more. I thought if I put her in the bathtub in lukewarm water it might help her release it she didnít poop but she just let out gas does this mean something? I didnít see anything in her previous poop. Could she just be gassy?

    By picking her up when her tail was "bent" upwards to put her in the tub, you probably interrupted her "release", but maybe it was just gas she was waiting
    for. No big deal, doesn't mean she's constipated...in fact, with watery stool already expelled, it's unlikely that she's constipated at all. Constipation usually
    results from the stool taking too long to be expelled resulting in more water being absorbed, making the stool too dry & hard to expel. For future reference,
    I wouldn't have picked her up as you did.

    Yep. They can fart dramatically and put you to shame in a contest of noise. Will never forget the first time I experienced it. I laughed so hard. LOL.

    Fart? Like an orchestra depending on how many you have. When my kids first heard it, they almost died of laughter. Is was around 11 at night and the house was quite, well was quite.
