A couple of days ago, I acquired a tiny little kitten, maybe about four days old. My friend had found him and kept him that night, feeding him human infant formula, as nothing else was available in the middle of the night. That night, the kitty had a bowel movement. Once I got him, I bought KMR and I have been successfully feeding him that for the past two days. He eats about 5cc every 3-4 hours. Normally, I attempt to stimulate elimination after each feeding, but so far, he only urinates each time. Then I put him back in his box (box is on top of heating pad, also has a towel, ticking clock and a stuffed bunny) and he settles in and after a few minutes he goes to sleep. Today, however, he has not settled in yet and remains active and crying. I'm wondering if he is uncomfortable not having a bowel movement in two days. Is there anything else I can try to get him to go? Does anyone have any other suggestions for me?
