Customer Question

I have a 4-5 week old Male kitten, and this morning he started to have white puss on his penile opening.
His BM are normal, but he's urinating on his bed and clean towels, and normally he doesn't do that.
The vets are closed till Monday, and I don't want this to turn into something like threatening.

Thanks so much for requesting me. I am sorry the baby is not feeling well.
He most likely has a urinary tract infection.
Give him 3 drops of cranberry juice to lower the PH of his urine.
Up his fluids by draining the water from a can of tuna into a bowel. See if he will lap it up.
Dip a towel in warm water, wring it out and wrap it around his bottom half. Or fill the sink with warm water and dip his lower half in.
If he becomes blocked (God forbid)and cannot urinate it will be a life threatening emergency.
Please write back and let me know how he is doing or if you wish we can speak on the phone.
