how long is he eating raw kitten food?

It is very possible the raw food was too rough for Momo's stomach. He may also have a parasite like .

coccidia or giardia.

if you have a VCA animal hospital near you, you can use a downloadable coupon for a free first exam for new patients, so you wouldn't have to pay for the exam, but if medication is prescribed, that would be your responsibility but the exam is free.Bring a stool sample as he may have coccidia and need albon. https://vcahospitals.com/free-pet-exam

To cure diarrhea get a few jars of baby food chicken or turkey with no onion powder/ Add one tablespoon of boiled white rice to each jar. Feed until his stool firms up. Next, add the rice to a canned food he likes and eats readily.

he also needs a probiotic so give one half tsp of plain yogurt daily or culturelle or forti flora.

Use plain pedialyte for hydration.
