My cat is under treatment currently with a prescription diet and Laxatone, but I'm wondering what would be considered normal. Once a day or once every 2-3 days?

varies from cat to cat according to individual health, activity, metabolism, and quality/quantity of nutritional intake, but I would say that once a day to once every two days would be considered normal.

Cats might have a bowel movement every day, but more commonly every other day.
