Re: losing control of his bowels...
A few of the elderly Hooligans have had this problem, some worse than others. I tried to carry a papertowel in my pocket all the time and when it happened I'd pick it up without saying a word, they can't control themselves.
I remember one afternoon Too was napping in the living room, I was watching her (I love watching the Hooligans sleep), and all of a sudden a big turd started coming out of her poop shoot - I picked it up and she slept thru the whole thing and when she woke up she never realized what happened.
I'm not sure what to say about eating it when you're not there. They make stuff like FORBID that you can put in food that's supposed to stop poop eating, maybe you can try that if there's nothing in it that may disagree with him.
Does he have to be crated when you're gone? If not, it might be easier on you not having to worry about him laying in a crate with poop in it.
