Is my new kitten sick?

I just recently bought a kitten for my children. I am the one solely responsible for him. He is 10 weeks old. The first day we had him he went to his litter box and his poop was solid. Ever since then, its been pure liquid and he has been throwing up the past two days. I don't know what to do...The throw up literally looks like it could be poop but I've watched it come up so, I know it's throw up. Am I feeding him too much...geesh I have no clue what I'm doing. Someone please help because this lil guy needs it.

well it all depends where you gor this kitten from. if you got him from a shop or a private sale then you will have no idea how his general health is and i would strongly recommend that you take the little chap to see a vet as soon as possible.

If you gor him from a shelter they should have given him a full health check before they gave him to you and in which case his symptoms could just be done to the change of food and

Lookinmg after a kitten so youing does take some time, he may not be fully weaned yet and this will mean that you will have to do this. can i suggest that you take him to see avet to make sure that he is not suffering from any illnesses etc and also that you read through my pages here about kitten care, they provide lots of helpful advice about weaning and general care which you may find of use as you have not done this before. here is the first page

I wish you every success and happiness with your new kitten, they really can bring a lot of love and joy into a family and its not as hard as it may first appear to take care of them, just a little time and effort thats all.

best wishes Kate
