CAT POOP! WTH!? I am so incredibly grossed out right now! The sink was spraying water underneath into the cabinet, my daughter fed an entire package of fish food to the fish and then I looked over and saw my almost 1year old crawling around with something in his mouth. The floors are pretty darn clean but figured he had found a stray Cheerio or something....NOPE!

So, does anyone know if I need to call the ped or anything? It looked like he had had it in his mouth enough to let it 'melt' (OMG! ) so he probably swallowed some actual poop and maybe a few pieces of our corn-cob based clumping litter too. I wiped his mouth out with a washcloth that had Listerine in it, brushed his teeth and made him drink some water. YUCK! I had *just* scooped the cat box this afternoon and swept the floor in that room. Of course the moment a bunch of other things go wrong (the sink leaking, dd probably killing all our fish) he decides to eat CAT TURDS!? :Puke

OH MY! I have no idea what you should do (I would probably call poison control just in case). But, I wanted to bump this up for you again.

:Puke

I thought my kids were the only who did disgusting things like that. He'll probably be fine, unless your cat has worms or something.

How disgusting. What does the litter say on the package about ingestion?

I am only laughing because this happend to me about a month ago, so it's nice to know I am not alone! I have no idea where my DS got the poop, because he wasn't anywhere near the litter box, but he found some anyway. Since my cats never go outside and had seen the vet in the past year, I just hosed him down, scrubbed his mouth as best I could and kept an eye on him. He was fine. And I am sure your litte guy will be also.

I feel your pain . . . this morning, my boy proudly handed my husband a handful of cat turds. We have a maine coon that sometimes gets a few danglers stuck in her fur and I guess my boy found them before I did. My boy was so pleased with himself too, like he was handing over the keys to a Ferrari.

Thank goodness my cats have both tested negative for toxoplasmosis.

I think you should call the ped just to be safe. Poop has some pretty bad bacteria in it.

Dh says that poison control should have been called immediately.

I hope that the OP has gotten her child treatment.

WHAT is with kiddos, huh?

Me: "darling, would you like some of this organic quinoa and freshly steamed vegetables that I so painstakingly prepared for your tiny sensative gut?"

DS: ::muching on cat food::


Gag, kids are cute, kids are sweet.... but kids are also gross.
