Any signs of vomiting?

Ask Your Own Cat Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I gave him a bath and he sounded like he was wheezing or almost about to throw up but didn't. But I could hear his stomach gurgling
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I took the food out of his cage about an hour ago but made sure he still has plenty of water

Ok. Diarrhea is common in young kittens especially if they have come from less than ideal conditions. Did the store give you any indication when he was dewormed and what product they used?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It did not.. but the store seemed primarily organic product based. The worker sent me with organic kitten hard food and pumpkin pouches. If it is a worm or parasite could it effect my one year old female cat? She is fully up to date on vaccines and shots
Cat Veterinarian: Richard Rawling,

Parasites are readily transmitted between cats yes. In this case I think it would be wise to deworm Mufasa again. If you have an idea of his weight, deworming medication should be available from most good pet supply stores. In young cats I generally recommend preparations containing fenbendazole (often sold as Panacur) as it is a broad spectrum, good allround dewormer. It should be available in a liquid formulation which makes it easy to accurately dose the little guys.

Feeding a light diet for a few days while he settles in can help also, feeding plain white fish or plain boiled chicken can help things settle initially.

It would be worth treating both cats for worms at the same time, to prevent them reinfecting each other and give them both the best start together.
