Nimh has been making "softer" poop these days, and today I'd totally say he has something alike diarrhea.
Excuseme for the details (?) but his poop got much more softer (not liquid, but quite) and a softer shade of brown too. While it was dark brown and quickly hardening before, now it's more red-tinged... not really red, I mean: there doesn't seem to be blood, but its shade is more reddish, if you know what I mean.

I've been feeding him a hamster/rat seeds&so popurri, taking sunflower seeds off, and mixing it with peeled apple bits, pine nuts, almonds, and some other nuts... I wonder if there is something I could feed him to help "solve his poop's state"? Kinda like when people had tummy issues and get boiled rice... not sure if that one whould be good for him either.

I have the sensation I'm always here talking about Censored.. xD

Have you recently changed his food? If you have added anything new it could have upset his tummy and cause softer poops. If the apple is fresh that could be why his poop is softer as there is a high water content and if he is getting a lot of it could be again causing his poops to soften. Maybe stop feeding the fresh fruit for now and see if that helps.

Plain oats should help with the diarrhea. Make sure he stays hydrated.

You also want to stop feeding almonds as the small amount of cyanide they contain is harmful to most animals, including rodents.
