Bless you for saving Princess and her sister Buttercup.

The problem is caused by the goats milk. It is not good for cats and has upset her tummy.

A 5 week old kitten does not need any milk. She should be weaned and eating canned kitten food.

In the meantime go out and get a few jars of chicken baby food with no onion powder. Add one tablespoon of rice cereal or boiled white rice to each jar.

Feed ONLY that till the stool is normal for 48 hours. then begin canned kitten food.

Please let me know how she is doing. Just reply here or if you prefer, we can speak on the phone.
