Dear Martha

I am convinced someone has found campylobacters in your cat's fecal 
specimens. We have found campylobacters to be quite common in cat feces, 
even in healthy animals. You may wish to refer to our publication in J. 
Vet. Med. B (1992) 39:175-180 on the subject. The evidence to prove that 
campylobacters may cause diarrhea in cats is very limited - diet is 
probably causing troubles a lot more often. Try to feed your cat dry 
pelletized food and water only.

Regards, Andre
