Default 2 week old kitty needs help!

Hello all,

I have had this sweet little grey kitten for 17 days now and he was maybe 1-3 days old when i got him. He was found alone underneath my mother in laws sisters home. on the first day i had him he let out a big brown healthy poo but after that he was always constipated and i would have to give him water enemas to get him going and he would squeeze out hard yellow poos. Then he started goin on his own just two days ago but it was orange and mucousy in texture, then brown mucousy now orange again ( and he goes quite often, almost everytime after he eats). I took him to the vet and they tested his poo and said there were trace amounts of blood in his poo and the mucous is b/c his colon is inflamed and irritated. He said since his tummy is bloated he suspects something wrong with his colon, maybe it is underdeveloped and cant push on its own.We cant be for sure unless we do alot of testing, x rays, and some invasive procedures costing about $1500 which i just cant do. He said kittens can grow out of it sometimes we just have to see. So right now hes drinking KMR and antibiotics from the vet and I just bought nutri cal with taurine as suggested from a pet store employee who seemed knowledgable on orphaned kittens. Now i read some things on feline colitis and it soiunds similar to him but cant find anything about it for kittens.Everywhere i read says orange poo means kitty will die, i hope this is not true. Has anyone gone through anytrhing similar or know what could possibly be wrong and what i can do to help him? He is honestly the smartest, sweetest kitty i have rescued and purrs, plays and licks himself so other than this he is healthy. Please help, I would do anything thats possible to make sure he survives and is healthy. HELP!

Thank you and bless you for working so hard to save that sweet little boy!
I cannot help with the questions, I will pray for you both. I have no doubt someone here will have ideas! As long as that baby seems happy and in no pain, do not give up!!

You might try getting a second opinion. Search your area for a feline specialist or vet school. Nothing against your vet, but a specialist is more likely to have seen these issues before.
You and your baby are in my prayers!

Ask if the specialist takes Care Credit. It is easy to sign up for and gives you 6 months to pay before charging any interest. I have used it for my animals and myself!

Hello and welcome and thank you for caring so much about this little baby!

I hope you can find a vet with more experience with this sort of issue, I don't have any answers either. Go easy on the nutrical, it is high in vitamin A which can be toxic if she gets too much. I wouldn't use it more than once every other day, and very tiny amounts.

Keep us posted on the baby girl, what's her name?

thank you all, and thanks for letting me know about the nutrical i will definitely keep that in mind. I will call on mon and see if Care Credit works with them also. His name is Chanko (it is a japanese food that sumo wrestlers eat to get fat, hisbelly is big so thus the name). his poo is now runny and more brownish than orange. i hope this is a good sign. he is at 3 weeks now and im wondering if he should start weaning with his stomach issues. I tried giving him a lick of some kitty mush but he didnt really like it. is it still too early or not good for him to start weaning now?
