my new kitten drags her bottom on the carpet every once in a while, i have checked for worms in her stool, and for signs of them around her bottom but i dont see any, do you know what the cause may be? she has a good appetite and nothing else seems to be bothering her.

Answer by Kate
Any signs of dragging the bottom is a sign of some irritation in this area. It could be worms, or some other parasite or even a slight infection. there are glands in that area that can also sometimes have problems and cause discomfort.

Kittens are very susceptible to parasites or infections and so it is probably worth having her checked by a vet.

best wishes Kate
P.S Cute kitten, I love their colouring :)
