Hi There,
There are a few things you can try to help move things along. Don't try all at once though. My favorites are whole milk or canned pumpkin (not pie filling,just straight canned pumpkin) once a day. If your kitty becomes lethargic, starts hiding, or crying, or is in pain when you touch him, he will need to go to the vet. Other things you can try are: Laxatone ( can be bought at most pet stores), fiber supplements such as citrucel, or 1/4-1/2 tsp mineral oil in his food. Each remedy should produce a bowel movement within 3 to 4 hours, so try one in the morning and one in the evening if you still get nothing.

Warmest Wishes,
