Q. My 7 month cat is pregnant. She lives outside on an enclosed porch. She poops all over the porch and it's kind of runny.. What is wrong with her?

A. The diarrhea could be caused by any number of things; intestinal parasites, a bacterial infection, even being constipated will sometimes manifest as diarrhea because liquid feces is all that will get by the impacted fecal material. It could be as simple as a dietary indiscretion, meaning she might have gotten into the trash and eaten something that didn't agree with her. I recommend getting her seen by your vet for an exam and fecal analysis and broad spectrum dewormer, even if the fecal results are negative.
