excessive cat pooing

by rebecca

my kitten is just 10 weeks old and in the last couple of days she has been pooing constantaly. i have had no choice but to isolate her becuase i have a 9 month old baby and i cant have the kitten pooing everywhere around my child as they play together all the time. she had been using the litter bow for the first week or two after i got her but in the last couple of days she has not bee n able to control her pooing. everytime i go to her to give her some attention i check her bum and there is constantly poo coming out of it (you can see it) i dont think she has eaten anything ( ie human food or any chemicals) she is on solid food only............can anyone help and give me some suggestion

Kittens are very susceptable to illness and infection during the early weeks of their life as they have not built up anough of an immune system. It is important that your kitten sees a vet as soon as possible as dehydration can occur very quickly in a kitten. She may need some specail medication and may even have a illness of some sorts that will need specail treatment.
It is really very hard to second guess what the cause could be and to be on the safe side, especially as you have a young child, it would be best to get them to a vet as soon as possible.
