Runny poo

Myfanwy has runny poo but she is only eating dry food.
Is there anything I can give her?

Are you givign her the same food that the previous owners did? Sometimes the sudden change of food can cause their little tummies to get upset and the can get diarreah (sp). It may take a few week for her to get settled for future referance when you change her food first start out with her regular food then a little of the new food then a little more of the new food and a little less of her food then more of her food and a tiny bit of her old food then her new food

They never eat the whole thing straight away so it is hard to feed them seperate.
I will try and make sure she does not go near his bowl though.
He eats her food too

do you feel them at certain times? I know my dog Lady is sorta like a cat you can feed her in the morning and she nibbles on her food. She isnt fat or anything shes weighed the same all her life. but my grandpas dog would over eat so we gave him a cup in half (this all depends on size) twice a day. So i wonder if you put them on a schedual where they get the set amount of food at like 9 in the morning and at 6 at night they will either eat it all. Or if they dont just give it to them later that way you dont have to worry about that. Also i know this is true for cat food, i get this kitten/cat food called health wise, so that way there eating the same thing myfawny is getting the nutrients she needs and so is Indi

I will give it a go.
But I think Myfanwy needs portions about 4 or 5 times a day
They do not have any type of weight problems or health problems other than they smell like cheese

You can give her a nice bland diet of cooked rice and boiled chicken. That will help ease the upset stomach and hopefully stop the diarrhea.
