Answer
Hi
Cats are intolerant of lactose which is in milk so it is not advisable to give normal cows milk to cats as it can give them diarrhea.

This is what has happened to your kitten.

Simply wipe his bottom with a warm wet cloth and the redding will go down by itself in a few days.

best wishes Kate
