Answer by Kate
kittens can have very sensitive tummies during their first few weeks and it is important that they receive the right food etc to keep them healthy. They can also pick up tummy bugs easily too, so diarrhea is not un commnon.

make sure you do not give your cat cows milk as this will cause diarrhea. Make sure that the food they are getting is suitable for kittens.

It may also be a good idea to see the vet in case they have picked up something and it is important that kittens are treated quickly for any possible tummy bugs as they can become dehydrated very quickly.

often times, wet cat food causes diarrhea. Also, if you are feeding it milk, it would be best to cut it with water. If its straight, mine has severe diarrhea.

Comment from kate
Some cats are lactose intolerant so the only milk they can have is cat milk which has the lactose removed. Adding water to normal milk will not make a difference.
