Smeagol is insanely cute... He's going to be brown tabby when he's older, right? 'cause now all I see is kitten fluff!

I've been reading through your thread and I'm thankful for all the links provided, and your experience as well.
Yesterday a neighbor asked if I would care for an abandoned 10 day old kitten. We already have 3 cats, a puppy, and a Chinchilla so I was hesitant to do so... but the neighbor (who's alllergic) had called everyone and no one would take it unless it was at least six weeks, so being the kindhearted person I am, I took it. Okay, that was a horrible run-on sentence. Sorry.
Anyways, I'm having the same problem as you initially did. I can get him to pee no problem, but I can't seem to get him to poo. I've tried everything recommended in the threads and links but nothing seems to be working.
However, I did not find if it was safe or not to give him karo syrup or something like it... Do you happen to know if it's safe?
|Unfortunately, all my cats now have fleas.
Smeagol stays with his adoptive family on Sundays while I'm at the festival and they have an indoor/outdoor cat and a dog. Both have some fleas from going outside although they are treated. So he tends to pick up a few and brings them to my house.
I know I have to be careful what kind of chemicals I use around Smeagol, but I'm not sure what I should do. Treat the adult cats, treat the house, flea comb the hell out of all the kitties??
I got several fleas off of Pippin (who is in love with the flea comb) and several off of Simple. I haven't tried Sparkle Boo or Morris yet.
I comb Smeagol on a daily basis but have only gotten one flea so far.
Anyone have any ideas?
