I recently got an orphaned kitty. I'm assuming she's around 4 1/2 to 5 weeks. She's playful and when I scartch behind her ears she purrs really loudly. But, My kitty well hasn't gone to the restroom. She's gone 1 but not 2. I'm scared her insides may rupture or something. I keep running to the restroom to check on her. And the other thing. Is food. She's eating about 5 TBSP. of food everyday. And seem to be fine. But when do I make the change to a regular food or even ground tuna or something. Anyone have advice?

My kittens are 4 weeks old now and for the past 3 days they have been eating wet food. Try it now! However some people said it took a day or two for the kittens to get the hang of it. Mine chowed down the first time lol

I havent had to do anything with my kittens. However their mama cat has done everything. I did have them poop on the floor twice but other than that I guess their mama is cleaning it.

If they have no mother and they aren't going on their own you need to stimulate them to go. And start quick before something inside does back up. Take them to the vet too and ask, they really should go be seen by a vet. Feed them wet food and KMR warmed up. Keep a litterbox there but realize they might not know how to go on their own yet. And as far asd litter goes, nonscoopable only or try Feline Pine or Yesterday's News.

My kitten is 4 weeks old and I have had her for a week. I put her in the litter box and she will go pee ... but I have to stimulate her to go poo... My trick is i hold her and rub her belly and then put her in the box and then take a paper towel soaked with hot water and just sort of dab her hiney... after about 30 seconds she starts to go... Snowball (my baby kitty) actually had a hard piece of poo that was blocking her way from having bowel movements... and I took her to the vet and he gave her an enema and everything has been good since then. If the dabbing ting doesn't work, I would take your kitty to the vet ... Taking my kitty to the vet was the best thing I could have done cuz he really taught me how to be a kitty mommy and I feel less stressed out now! GOOD LUCK!

That is great advice. A vet can tell you the exact age, and advise you how to care for the kitten.
