    So my kitten is about 2 weeks old. A friend of mine was handing them out so we took one in. His name is Cheeto and he is an orange tabby!!
    Anyway, Cheeto so far has been doing GREAT at eating and peeing but unfortunately not pooping. We are feeding him milk replacement formula and we are stimulating him like I read we should but all he is doing is going #1 . There was once where his pee came out browinish, it wasn’t chunky nor did it look like diarrhea but it was more like liquid. So i don’t know of that was poop or not but other thank that we aren’t getting any solids or toothpaste looking poop. We put a few drops of olive oil in his formula so hopefully that will work. But if anyone has any tricks or anything that might help us make him poop that would be amazing!! PS: we are thinking of giving him back to his mom (hopefully she takes him in) and take him back when he’s old enough to potty on his own. Is that a good idea???

    Concats on adopting wee Cheeto. It’s not unusual for kits to not poop the first couple of weeks since all they’ve had is milk.

    Here in TDKland, we recommend Goats’ milk for kittens. Cats are lactose intolerant and can’t digest cows milk. Goats’ milk is full of nutrients, probiotics and gentler on their tummies. This can also regulate the poop. You can find it in the dairy section or the concentrate in the baking aisle. Mix the concentrate 1:1 with water or pedylite. Continued with the olive oil in his formula because it will help them poop.

    I don’t know if you’ve seen this video but many find it helpful.

    Once the kits have “left” the nest, moms don’t usually take their kittens back.

    Good luck

    How do I know I should be worried? It’s only been 4 days (starting today) since he’s come and won’t poop so I don’t know if I should worry or not. We tried looking at tricks on youtube to make kittens poop but so far, no results.
    I don’t want to worry yet but I would like to know when I should start.

    First, don’t panic. It’s not going to help you or Cheeto. I would give him another day. After feeding, gently stimulate and rub his belly. Since you’re on the edge of worrying, go ahead and call a vet. I’d rather you do that then stress yourself out.
