    So I just got a brand new kitten, he is about a week old (were guessing) he will eat out of a bottle (barley) but will not poop even when being stimulated, I’m very concerned, he has been sleeping most of the day, and he has only peed one time and it was not a lot. I’m very nervous! He was found in a field after being thrown out of a moving vehicle!!!

    You say you’ve been looking after her since she was born. Wee kittens will mew a lot, but there’s a difference between that and crying in pain. Is her belly bloated and very firm feeling? She may be constipated. Kits don’t poop everyday but since she hasn’t gone yet it’s a good idea to all a vet.

    KMR concentrate tends to give kits constipation and the liquid does the opposite. 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. If, at any time, they seem lethargic put a dab of Karo syrup or honey in their mouth.

    Also, a smidgen of mineral oil in their formula can usually help them poop. You can put a dab of Neosporin on his bum if he gets sore. He needs to poop but he doesn’t know how to do it on his own. Here’s a video showing how to help him poop.

    Good luck and keep in touch
