is it ok for my 5 days old kitten to be pooing now i dont no if its right or not and the other one has not pooed for 5 days

Answer by Kate
Of course its ok for him to be going to the loo now. In fact it is very important that their systems start to regulate themselves to do this on a regular basis.

As for the one that has not passed anything yet. His mother should be licking him on his lower abdomen to help him pass urine etc and so perhaps he may need a little more help from you in this department.

Please see this page and video for more on how to do this. there is a demonstration at the end of the video.


If he is still unable to pass anything then you should contact your vet for some advice he may need some medication of an examination to make sure he is ok in that area.

best wishes Kate
