Hello all,
I am currently raising a bottle kitten. I rescued him when he was 1 week old. He is now 3 weeks old and doing great for the most part but he hasn't pooped in 5 days. He eats great every feeding and urinates before and after each feeding when I stimulate him. He is eating about 8 tablespoons/120 mL a day and weighs around 13 oz. He sleeps great and for how old he is he is strangely super strong and pretty active. Should I be worried? Is there anything I can do to help him?

Maybe try a warm wash cloth and wipe his tummy. My daughter did that with baby rabbits. Maybe a little water . just guessing .I really wish you luck.

I know with bigger bottle-fed animals, giving enemas is not uncommon. with something as small as a kitten you'd have to be careful, but I think that might be your best bet if normal stimulation isn't helping.
