blood from butt
i just got my kitten today hes only 2 weeks old and his mother died. he hasnt been eatinq much but i finally got him to eat at least 15 ml . i was rubbing his stomach so he could poop and all thats coming out is blood. i can tell hes pushing because his anus looks like hes trying to push . but only blood comes out. he keeps whining and he barely wants to eat. i took him to a vet today and they told me that hes healthy but the bleeding started after i left so i need help and advice.

Bless him he is very young indeed and so his insides are still getting used to a routine etc. the blood may be because he is constipated. As he is so young i would advise phoning your vets for some advice, i;m not sure that the normal treatment for cat constipation would be suitable for one so young. theyu should be happy to advise you over the phone.
here is my page about cat constipation anyway and also my pages about looking after orphan kittens i wish you all the luck in the world taking care of this little chap, its not always easy.
best wishes KAte
