Poop,poop and more ppop

Very big problem over here... Kiwi and Kibbles have been pooping in the house at night for the last three days and the cat is starting to follow along.
They have never done this before and we haven't changed their food or given them anything new.

HELP PLEASE.... the house smells terrible even though were clean it as best as we can and the carpet is not stained in more places which my mother is now really pissed off about.

Weird that both the dogs and the cat are all doing it.

Did you change the time that you feed the dogs? I had to feed Kit late once and it threw off his normal bathroom schdule.

Are you cleaning the spots where the accidents are realllly well? If Kit can smell that he's gone somewhere before he'll try to go there again. I really have to scrub the area well to get the smell to go away.

Is it normal poo or do they have diarrhea at all?? Maybe they could be getting into some kind of food without you knowing about it?

If it continues to be a problem, and they are both healthy, maybe you could consider putting them in crates to sleep at night?

For the cat, is the litter box kept really clean? I use to have a cat who would poo on the floor if her litter box was even a tiny bit dirty, and she wouldn't use her box when she was stressed.

Good luck! We're finally to a point with Kit where he is being really good about asking to go out every time he needs too, but I know how much it stinks (literally) when you have to keep cleaning up pet messes in the house.

We haven't changed anything, everything is the exact same.

The poop I cleaned up today (they pooped earlier that my mom cleaned) was liquidy and disgusting (isn't all poop though?) I know that they have been getting into the cat food, but they always have and this has never happened before.

They don't do well in crates, and we don't have a crate big enough for Kibbles to be comfortable in.

Cats litter box is clean, I think he might just be following the dogs lead (he thinks he is a dog)

Oh and the spots are clean well, and with a carpet washer thing.

Well I definatly agree that all poo is disgusting, I don't think it's normal for it to be liquidy. I would say that that's probably why they are going in the house - When Kit had giardia he had liquidy poo and he had a much harder time holding it to make it outside as well as having to go more often than normal.

Maybe their stomachs are bothering them or they have some kind of parasite or something? If this continues and it where my dogs, I would take a fecal sample to the vets to check for parasites and bring them in to see if there's anything else it could be.

Or have they had poo like that for awhile? Maybe they have a food allergy or something?

When they do outside the poo is normal. They need to go in for there shots soon so I'll also have this checked out. The problem is its hard to tell who's poo is who's.
