You mean like extra chewy soft or spreadable soft?

Have you suddenly changed the food recently? Animals should be slowly weened off of old food.

Has she been checked for parasites? You should take your kitten to the vet at this point; she’s at the age where a vet should take a look. Is she still weaning, because she should be? Take kitty to the vet, they’ll give her a once over to make sure she is healthy and disease free.

It’s common for a six week old kitten to have a soft stool. At that age, she’s still adjusting to changes in diet. But just in case, she definitely needs to have a fecal test to check for intestinal parasites. She should should now be able to handle a high quality dry kitten food and she’s due for her first vaccines. Schedule her spay for around 4 to 6 months of age.

Many people give their cats milk because we were raised to think cats should have milk, but truth is it gives MANY of them loose stools.

But DO take her to the vet to check for worms. Is she getting into food she shouldn’t be?
