cats NEED... NEED... NEED... to be on a diet consisting of mainly wet food. Please read the link below about the differences between wet and dry cat foods.
Do not feel like you are spoiling your cat by giving him one can of wet food a day, he should actually be eating MORE. Thats why he acts crazy and sits by his bowl.. he's HUNGRY!
If your cat is an adult, feed him morning and night... if he is a kitten he should be eating wet food 3 times per day.
You should not on the other hand cut the dry food out entirely but do not make the dry food his primary source of nutrition.
Also if he has diarrhea check what you are already feeding him. My old cat Muffin used to eat the really cheap "KitNKaboodle" brand crunchy food and got diarrhea almost immediately after consuming it. Also foods like 9Lives or other supermarket commercial brands would make her go as well. Invest the 30 extra cents per can and buy either, Wellness, Felidae, or Petite Cuisine (which my kitten Rex absolutely loves).
