Your Kitten Needs to Poop
When kittens are first getting used to using a litter box on their own, it’s not uncommon for them to be a little fussy about pooping. Kittens under 8 weeks old will often meow before or during defecation, and that’s okay as long as the kitten is not straining or uncomfortable.
If a kitten is crying out every time she poops, or is pushing and struggling to use the litter box, bring her to the vet to make sure that there is not an underlying medical issue. Constipation, diarrhea, and other gastrointestinal problems must be taken seriously, especially in a young kitten, so don’t delay if you suspect that the kitten is unwell.
