I could use a little help with a kitten that i have.

I got Chance a week before Halloween and he was around 9 weeks old. He's a long hair Cat (his picture is attached). Today I was goofing around with him and noticed this large ball of poop stuck to his backend. I tried pulling it off, but it wouldnt budge. So i took him to the kitchen sink and wet him down with warm water and proceeded to take it off. I had to cut away alot of his hair down there to get it all off, but as i was pulling the dried stuff off, there was fresh poop coming out of his backend, as if he was impacked. So after i got him dried off and settled down, i looked at his anus, and its all stretched and has clear fluid coming out and he doesnt want to walk at all. I did get him to drink some water and eat a little bit. I don't know what to do with him. I cant afford to take him to the Vet Any suggestions or help you could give would greatly be appericated.

He may have just been stressed from you handling him. I have a long haired cat whose hair I have to trim to keep him from getting poop in it. I would keep an eye on him and see how he does in the next day or two. Sometimes when cats struggle they will defecate in the process. Let us know how he is doing.

How far is his rectum stretched? It could possibly be a prolasped rectum. Was the stool extremely hard or lose? Does he seem to be straining when he goes to the bathroom?

He seems to be doing ok, it looks like its went back into place, but it looks a lil gross on the outside, I dont know if its blood or just poop. He's eating now, and running around playing with his sister kitten.

That happened to my 9 week old, long haired kitty

I felt so bad! It was a lil ball of poop w/ litter attatched! I put her in warm water and then cut the rest off.

It only happeend that one time and I haven't had to cut any hair since.
