Conditions that create stress for cats include new pets or other household changes. Try to devote some additional time to the cat under such circumstances. Withholding food for a meal or two gives the cat's system a break, but continue to give it water. Adding fiber to the cat's diet makes stools firmer by removing water from the colon. Metamucil is a safe option, states VetInfo.

Begin giving the cat bland foods slowly, in small portions once each four to six hours. Acceptable bland foods include plain mashed potatoes, white rice, and boiled chicken or ground beef, says VetInfo.
