Feed her strictly canned cat food, and give her 2 tablespoons of canned pumpkin daily. If that doesn't work she needs a vet.

Expert:  Lynn replied 8 years ago.



I would not recommend giving her prunes as I believe they can be toxic to cats. You can give her Metamucil and a cat laxative product intended for hairballs (such as Laxatone or Laxaire) in addition to feeding her only canned cat food (no dry) and the canned pumpkin. If she's already been constipated for some time its possible that nothing you can do at home will help. Here's a link to a page about constipation in cats;
