Q. I found a kitten in my garage he's 4/5 weeks old I was giving him milk replacement for couple started giving wet food why does he cry when he's poopin

Answered By

A. Does the kitten seem to strain when he's passing feces ? Did you introduce wet food gradually ? Has the kitten got plenty of fresh water available all the time ? Is the food a good quality food ? How are the feces : dry and a bit hard or loose ? If the kitten is crying when passing feces, he must be in discomfort, wether it is his tummy or just the actual passing through because for example he is constipated it is difficult to tell without seeing him and being able to get more details about his daily routine and medical history.
