So my husband and I rescued a baby kitten about a week ago and the kitten has been doing great! I’m worried due to the fact he hasn’t pooped today? Is this normal? Should I be worried?? He is eating and peeing just not pooping. At the moment he is sleeping in his box with his teddy. I love this little guy I don’t want anything to happen to him! Please help me. Oh by the way we named him Casper! He is all black and loves to purr! It was love at first sight! He has to be ok!23 May, 2013 at 5:55 am #775178
Hi HJ welcome to TDK. Bless you for rescuing Casper.
Here are some links for raising kittens. I hope they help.
Young kittens don’t poop every day, it can be up to 3 days sometimes. The links will tell you how to stimulate the kitten after feeding to encourage it to eliminate.
There will be others along who may be able to add more than I have.
I’m guessing that Casper has already stolen a piece of your heart, kittens will do that.23 May, 2013 at 5:57 am #775179
Yes he has! I’m in love with him 🙂23 May, 2013 at 6:06 am #775180
LOL, they do that to a person. Check out the poop tags on the top right too there will be some good advice there too and do let us know when Casper has pooped as we like to celebrate that milestone here.23 May, 2013 at 6:09 am #775181
Ok thanks!!! I will update you as soon as he does!:)23 May, 2013 at 6:14 am #775182
Yay, do join in on the other threads. We have a ‘Cafe’ thread, usually started by someone in the US as they wake up and there are various other threads on many topics, not all to do with cats either.
I’m in New Zealand and it’s coming up to dinner time here so I will be disappearing for a while. The Thursday Cafe should open in the next hour or so.
There is also Introductions where you can tell us a bit about your kitten and yourself if you want to.23 May, 2013 at 7:01 pm #775183
