Customer Question

i have a new kitten that has an estimated age of 5.5 weeks. she is currently eating kitten formula mixed in to soft canned kitten food. I fed her some leftover turkey today at around noon-ish and I haven't noticed a significant bowel movement and she hasn't eaten anything else today. she is still very cuddly but cries when you pick her up. her belly looks and feels a little distended...should I be concerned or will it pass?

How long have you owned her?

Did the crying occur after the turkey meal or before?

Any vomiting or diarrhea?
