My kitten will not eat or poop
I found an abandoned kitten 4 or 5 days ago and he appears to be 2-3 weeks old. He seemed healthy enough, if dehydrated and he was eating well and he pooped the first day we had him. All I can afford to give him right now is whole milk and he seemed to be doing well on it til now. My friend suggested I put honey in it which I did today but he seems to have had a bad reaction to it. He has not pooped in 3 days and his belly is round and firm. He is very lethargic, suddenly and has completely lost appetite since I gave him the honey. Earlier he seemed like he was going to throw up but nothing came out. I'm very worried!

Whole COW milk does not have the nutrition a baby kitten needs. Buy a can of kitten milk and introduce him to wet kitten food. Mix it together and always leave fresh water out. He may have worms or who knows what else. Call a vet and see at what age is the earliest they will see a sick kitten. Honey is not cat food and can choke them; I've never heard of that. Sometimes rubbing their butt with a warm wet rag helps them to poop. Banfields have coupons up front where your first visit is free and you only pay for the medicine; please get him some professional animal care as soon as you are able. ^_^
