15 days ago my husband found a little orphaned kitten out by our garbage cans. It still had the placenta attached. He has been doing very well. I am feeding him KMR formula. He eats 2and 1/2 teaspoons every 3 hours at this point. He now weighs 11 ozs. His eyes opened at 10 days old. Yesterday I noticed his butt was red and irritated as well as a little spot on his tail by his butt. Today it is even worse much more red and now he is crying when I wipe him after his feeds to help him potty. I bought him some of the pre-soaped baby wash rags to clean him because they seem softer than paper towels. Also, I have been putting vasaline on him after his cleanings. He has an appointment with the vet in 2 weeks for his first visit. Is there anything I can do for him now? Such as an antibiotic ointment? Would that be safe?
