Kitten Help

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I found this kitten in my yard and since I am a cat lover I just knew it was meant to be. I believe that this kitten is about 3 weeks old. She weighs about 11 oz. I found her late day before yesterday. She if eating more and more every time. I am relived that she is eating formula that I have made her. How ever she hasn't had a bowl movement yet. She hasn't urinated very much either. I have tried a damp warm wash cloth in small strokes after she is done eating to no avail. I am not sure what to do at this point. Please help!!! Very scared and I can't really afford a trip to the vet unless I absolutely have to.

You need to take the baby to a vet ... call and see if you can make payments if $$ is tight//

If you are using a damp cloth its hard to tell if they have urinated.. ( i am hand raising 2 litters myself) the vet says they can go 2-3 days without a bowel movement by 3+ weeks old. Good luck! I know ive never been so excited to see kitten poop as i was with this past litter of babies

Well, I was more concerned this morning so I called a vet to ask what to do. The vet told me that I could give the kitten .5cc of Milk of Magnesia 2x a day. Then no sooner I hung up the phone the kitten went pooped I was so excited. Thank you for your help.

Congrats on the new baby! I'm glad you don't need to use MOM, but that is good to have as an option!
