It sounds like his anus could have prolapsed. You need to get him to a vet ASAP! He is likely to be in pain and needs to be seen NOW!

I managed to phone vet and she told me that it was a prolapses. She told me to try and push the res ball back in with oil and keep it like that and I managed to put it back in. But he is still taking deep breaths and looks like he is in pain. Vet told me that if he makes it through we can operate him when he is older. I hope he makes it through. Pray for him pls

Poor thing. Isn't there anything the vet can do for him now besides shove the ball back in?

I would definatly take the kitten to the vet. We had a dog that had puppies when I was younger and that happened to one of the pups, and they were able to fix it when she was a couple weeks old. The vet told my mom if she wouldnt have brought her in and had it done she would have died on us. Please get the baby to the vet ASAP.

Vet told me on the phone that their was no use of taking the kitten to her because he was too young to be operated. Vet told me that at that age nothing can be done. He told me to do what I already posted and if he pulls through he may have to be operated at an older age.

However today I am taking him to my vet because the other one was not my normal vet because he does not work on Sat and I coluldnt get him at home.

Kitten looks to be much betther though. He is feeding from his mum again and is breathing normally. But I will take him to my vet to get him checked.

For Your information
I am not exactly the kind of person that does not take my pets to the vet. Actually I am at the vet very often, cos I like to be on the safe side and dont like to see them suffer.
