Bowel movement stimulation?
i caught a kitten in the park today, probably has feral mom. anyway guessing the cats age is atleast 4 weeks(has all baby teeth, walks, has accepted some adult cat food)
do i need to stimulate the bowel movement still if it this old? i dont think it has defecated yet although it does jump in the makeshift litter box occasionally.
i have attempted to rub its belly and genital region with a wet paper towel, attempts were brief.
this is only temporary as i have a mild cat allergy, so i will be looking to hand the kitten to animal control or another person with in the week.
the cat is set up in a cage with a towel, kitten chow, water, litter tray. it is allowed to roam occasionally and is handled for attention during that time. is anything else needed?
