Hole in cat HELP HELP HELP

Hi, Im new at this but I really need to know if anyone has dealt with this. My boyfriend got a kitten for me about a weeek ago and when i was bathing it today I noticed that it has holes hollowed or burrowed out around its tail and by its anus. I have an appointment for it late this afternoon, but I really dont know what I should be expecting when i get there. Im allready so attatched to the little man... ANYONE WHO HAS DEALT WITH THIS PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!

Sorry, I have no idea what you could be talking about. Please let us know what the vet says and good luck, hopefully it's nothing serious.

Where did your boyfriend get the kitten? If it was from a shelter or rescue, they may have addressed/cleaned him up and what you're seeing is the residual? In any case, the vet visit will tell you what's going on, the last thing you want is maggots...

He got him from a friend of his whose cat had kittens... lol clearly.... but i dont know why they wouldnt have told me that it was sick... The other thing that makes me nervous is it has had diareha since we got it.

Re: Hole in cat HELP HELP HELP

Well the diarrhea explains why it may have had maggots. How old is the kitten? What are you feeding it?

I'm really not sure how old it is... I would guess 5-8 weeks, but that is based mostly on his size which im sure has been compromised by whatever is wrong with him. I am feeding him science diet AD soft food mixed in with KMR milk replacer. I had him on Iams kitten but he wouldnt touch it!!
