I have tar-looking diareah
Today I was sitting on the window sill from the 5th floor of my apartment and I either decided to jump out or I fell. Now I have shallow breathing and when my mom found me I had black-tar diareah flowing out of me on it's own. I can walk but my hind legs feel very weak and wobbly. Now I just want to hide under the bed. I think I may have been a little constipated before the fall. What should my mom do? She is very worried about me.

I think Mom should take you to the vet immediately. Sounds like you may be bleeding internatlly with the black diarrhea. I wouldn't wait at all. Just get you to the vet. Please let us know how you are doing. We hope you feel better real soon.

Get to a vet ASAP. The black colour means that you have internal bleeding (the red blood turns black inside the gut) and you need emergency vet help urgently.
Even if your mum doesn't have any money no decent vet will turn away a seriously injured kitten. Your mum can negotiate payment terms once she's there.
