Young kittens (from a day to around three weeks of age) require a lots of attention and nurturing. Keep in mind that it is normal for a kitten’s feces to be soft as long as they are drinking formula.
Do NOT keep the washcloths in their dirty state for the next time you need to make a kitten poop. This version of How to Make a Kitten Poop was reviewed by Pippa Elliott, MRCVS on May 19, 2015. Kittens that have been abandoned by their mothers are quite helpless and cannot fend for themselves.
After your kitten has been feed, hold the kitten so that your non-dominant hand is under its belly and its rear is facing you.
You will be using this washcloth to stimulate the kitten’s abdomen and anal region so that the kitten can poop.
After the kitten has finished defecating, give its bottom a good wipe to make sure it is clean.

Reusing dirty cloths may give your kitten an infection, which could pose a serious hazard to their health. Even though you are placing a washcloth between your hand and your kitten’s anus, that does not mean that urine and feces won’t get on your hands. It is important to have a kitten checked out by a veterinarian as soon as possible to make sure it is healthy and get any vaccines or medicines that your kitten needs to get healthy.
Some kittens may squawk and complain as you do this, but don't give in to their complaints because this needs to be done.
They should be moderately-coarse textured (with hooked fabric), not smooth, as it needs to mimic the mother cat's coarse tongue when she cleans her kittens. Your grip needs to be gentle, but firm enough so that the kitten can't escape from your hand.
When the kitten starts to urinate, you will feel some added warmth to the hand that is massaging the kitten's bottom. Then using a dry towel or another dry washcloth, dry the kitten's bottom as much as possible.

Your grip needs to be firm enough so that it cannot escape, no matter how crafty the kitten gets!
Most recently, she’s been working on editing How to Tell if a Cow or Heifer Is Pregnant to make some improvements based on reader feedback and questions. If you rescue kittens that are under three weeks old, you will need to know how to encourage a baby kitten to poop. Keep massaging until the flow of urine stops, then check to see if the kitten is about to poop. Making sure that the kitten’s bottom is clean and dry will help prevent rash or infections.
Kittens under three weeks old need stimulation after each feeding to help them poop.[1] Keep reading to learn how to make a kitten poop.
