Customer Question

He's a 7 week old and his poop gets stuck in his bottom. I cleaned him good this morning. And now the poop is stuck again. When you touch his bottom he meows. He's eating good
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the cat's name?
Customer: Milo
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Milo?
Customer: His mom appeared on my steps two years ago. I have been feeding her ever since. She's never been touched. This is her second set of kittens. I took them to the vet two weeks ago they all had eye infection. I got the treatment for that. Their eyes are clear now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 2 months ago.

What food is Milo currently being fed?

Is the stool hard or soft?

Is the stool stuck within the anus or in the fur?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
It's stuck in the anus! He's eating fancy feast cat food and kmr milk. Sometimes moms milk

Kitten food I meant to say
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Kind of soft stool
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 2 months ago.

If you add some pure canned pumpkin to the food, this should help with the solidity of the stool. It should provide enough bulk to pass it more easily. The best solution for stools stuck in the anus will be to soak the back half of the kitten which should soften it and allow him to pass the stool.
