    Hi all. Sable is growing so fast but it’s been nothing but a headache as far as her tiny kitty belly go. She’s been on goats milk and poops roughly every other day. Usually in the morning. I noticed her last stool was odd, a very firm nugget followed by a somewhat loose brown orange stool and a little bit of mucus. Sometimes the very last bit is a little red. I have no doubt there is a good chance she has worms, but as she is eating healthily I haven’t wanted to deworm her. I don’t fully trust that deworming a kitten who barely poops won’t hurt her. I’ve been dealing with her constipation by adding a few drops of mineral oil and a little bit of pumpkin purée. Here’s a picture of her poop this morning
    Do you guys think this warrants a vet trip?

    Another thing, her eyes haven’t really started opening yet. I can see that the very corners aren’t as sealed and there is a little bit of tears at the corners. No sneezing so far, only when she gets overzealous and splashes a little milk by her nose. I check her lungs every feeding, no crackling that I can hear.

    Yes this warrants a trip to the vet.

    We have an appointment for tomorrow, I’ve tried researching this and I never find any info about what can be causing this. Does anyone know?

    Hi Chaos, yes a trip to the vet is warranted. It is probably nothing except parasites like giardia, but if the vet can give you meds for Sable at her very young age, then the trip will be well worth it.

    She went today and has a clean bill of health so far. We’re waiting on getting a sample of her stool then he is going to test it for parasites and the antigens. He said with her activity level and weight gain she’s not in trouble. He checked her eyes and said they look like they’re getting there and there’s no puss or discharge. He said that while trying to relieve the constipation with mineral oil and pumpkin it could have caused the mucus in her poo but she’s healthy enough that she can wait until a fecal test is preformed.
