Hi Kate, I just recently adopted a black and white kitten. He has been getting a lot of white stuff around his eyes and I haven't seen him poop in two days. He's been eating, but no sign of pooping. I don't know if he's constipated or not. I don't get paid until Friday to take him to the vet. Can you give me any advice on what to do until Friday? Thank you so much in advance!

Until you can get him to the vets clean his eyes up with warm water and cotton wool. regarding the possible constipation make sure he gets plenty to drink and stays active. you can also try rubbing his tummy to get things moving. I have a web page about cat constipation for some further information here /cat-constipation.html

best wishes kate
