Question: My cat is constipated and wont let my cat help him, how can we help him? My cat is constipated and wont let my dad* help him The poop is sticking out only a tiny bit, so we cant use enemas or pull it out.

Get some miralax and sprinkle 1/8th a teaspoon into the canned food 2x a day Want a healthy cat and not to have a blockage that can kill? Stop feeding kitty crack (dry food) www.catinfo.org

You probably need to improve your diet as you seem to have a constipation problem. For constipation, castor oil is very good for a one-off remedy as in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22c... but it is unsuitable for regular use. For constipation, suppositories, laxatives and enemas are all totally unnecessary if you eat the right foods. All fruit and vegetables in very large amounts are laxative. You need to permanently change your diet or you are likely to get colon cancer. Constipation can make you extremely unwell and can lead to colon cancer as it causes a build up of carcinogenic toxins in the system. The intake of foods such as milk, cheese, white rice, white flour and red meat should be restricted, because they tend to contribute to constipation. Any food that has had the fiber stripped out, the nutrients processed out or slows down the digestion is a constipation culprit. Here's a list of foods shown to cause constipation problems: •Meats, especially fatty meats, red meat and processed meats, •Dairy Products, such as cheese, ice cream and whole milk, •Fast Foods – burgers, French fries and other fried foods, pizza, etc., •Refined grains, like white rice or any refined white flour products, •Highly starchy foods – white potatoes, corn and all refined grains, •Pastries and other high sugar products, such as cakes, cookies and pies, •Deep-fried foods, chips and other foods that are high in bad fats. You can see lots more in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22n... which tells you "Natural Ways to Relieve Constipation" and the right foods to eat.

You may be eating to much fiber. Despite popular belief, a surplus of fiber is not good for the body. Try to lay off of the fiber for a while honey ;)

I'd check with your vet to see what is recommended. Pumpkin might work but your vet may believe that a medication is more suitable. If it's more serious he will probably need an enema. Your cat should also be checked to determine the cause (unless you already have a diagnosis for this).

mix some canned pumpkin into wet food. It won't take much--maybe a tablespoon or so--& he'll get things moving. If he's really in pain now & you can't wait, take him to the vet. They'll probably use a suppository or a little enema to get things going.

Not trying to freak you out but it's a possibility that you might have hemorrhoids (if you don't usually drink water--like when you where a kid or something). hemorrhoids are wads of veins that sit and the end of your rectum. so theyre pretty painful. you may wanna grab a mirror and check down there. they can be very painful because they block the flow of...poo...and cause constipation if thats not the case you probably have a regular (sorta) case of constipation. try laxatives and avoid things like cheese and ice cream. well, wait, you already did that. um...try going in for a colonoscopy for your doctors to view your colon. you can also try a colonic. a colonic is where water is released into your colon and sent into your intenstine with a tube that is inserted in your anus and the water would cause the muscles of the colon to contract and feces will feel the pressure and sort of flow out into a closed waste system. basically, you're getting cleaned out. you'll feel a bit of discomfort in the abdomen but you'll get cleaned out :] good luck!
