I'm still a bit concerned that it seemed to take long for his poop to look normal (and it does look pretty good from what I can tell in the picture). He could have just taken awhile to settle, but I feel like there's probably something else going on. Though his food is the same the breeder gave him, it still could be dietary. I think it's good that you have a vet appointment set up.

And finally, here is the book twobytwopets mentioned. It really is a great resource, and it has a wonderful tutorial on choosing food.
Thank you! I thought so too! When I started reading posts here about green poops (Which I thought was normal.) normally they would say it'll only take 2-3 or 3-4 days to the poop to change so it's not so serious.

Dobby was having green poop for the last week which just freaked me out when I posted this thread.

But I think it's due to the interrupted sleeps because I always check if he's hibernating... and the new people visiting him everyday.

Yea I'll check out the book thank you so much for actually posting the link!

Just a suggestion on the diet. You can try switching to Royal Canin. It's one of the "high end" cat foods here in the Philippines

Royal Canin is actually a moderate brand, definitely not high end or good, but in some countries (like yours) there is simply nothing better.
