My 1 month and 2 weeks old kitten poo issue

by Diana B.

My cat doesnt know how to poop right and i think he's having a hard time pooing. He sits down while pooing which is always a mess. He ends up having poo all over his butt and legs. Everytime i try to wipe him up she always meows as if he's hurt. What do you think the problem could be? Well i started feeding him when he turned a month old with cat food then dry food. His butt is kinda red, his poop is also brown and liquid.

Answer by Kate
He may be constipated higher up in the bowel but only a vet can diagnose any problems in this area. he may even have an infection in that area that makes it painful to go, kittens are prone to illness during their early months.
If i were you i would get him checked by a vet, just to rule out anything nasty that could be wrong. they will also be able to advise you of how to deal with any further constipation issues.

I had a cat this young and the same thing happened to me. I just gently washed her legs every time there was poo on her and waited until she was old enough to control it herself. She also had worms which most kittens are born with and that made it tender for her butt. I gave her worming medicine and it cleared right up!
