Hello. Thanks for the question.

If you haven't tried, make sure you're stimulating the kitten with a warm water gauze or cotton ball. You should do this a few minutes after eating to give the best results.

If that's not working, you can give an enema. I would only give 2-3 mL of warm water and a water based lubricant mixture.

If that is still not working, I would see a vet for further directions.

Hi Forrest,

I'm just following up on our conversation about Babby Kitten. How is everything going?
