Hi there I am hand rearing 2 kittens whose mother did not have enough milk and 2 others had already died. I have only had them for about 30 hours but they have not poo'd. They are about 3 and a half weeks old. They have wee'd when stimulated, drink the formula and walk, try to wash themselves and are starting to play fight. Should I be worried?

Wish I could help, but didn't want to read and run...

Maybe you should ask this in the breeders' section, they have a wealth of experience with kittens.

You should be concerned, yes. They should poo after every feed, if not every other one. Are you definitely stimulating them correctly? It should be a reasonably firm rubbing motion over the lower belly and anal region with a rough, damp cloth.
