    Ok so most of you know me from my battle to save my prescious(sp) Red. I have been having kittens just seem to disappear. Now I have 3 left out of 7 and one is sick guys. But I have no idea what it could be. She won't eat, Her tummy seemed like it was hurting her yesterday and it felt like her bowles were backed up. I am syringing vit/electrolytes in to her when I can. Any ideas on how to unclog a kittens bowles?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Sounds like worms to me. But if you want a laxative get hairball medicine.

    Can I put a drop of Ivermectin on her to kill any parasites that are on or in her? She is about 12 weeks old.

    Poor kitty. The hairball treatments at a store like walmart might help. It could be worms, too. Can you sequester the cat with its own litter box to make sure it is pooping so you know that it is not a complete obstruction. If it ends up looking like a complete obstruction, it is probably time to take the cat to the vet.
