I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner and I regret that I'm not allowed to communicate with customers by phone. If Sassy Pants isn't eating or drinking there won't be anything in her to defecate or urinate. Her vet will need to thoroughly examine her and perform testing for the feline leukemia and kitty AIDS viruses because kittens found outside such as Sassy Pants are at a higher risk of contracting those viruses than when bred indoors. It's best that you don't administer mineral oil to address constipation - or any drugs for any purpose - until it's clarified what's going on with her.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
