|How old was Minion when she was wormed, and what was she wormed with?
All kittens have worms, even kittens born to championship show cats, thats just how it is. Being where she came from, I suspect Tasha Belle is right, she might have issues with worms.
I also think, it has to do, with what she is being fed, and what she was fed. Kittens have very sensative little systems. The constant switching of foods, that young, will, cause tummy upset and/or diarea. Iams is full of grains, grains cause tummy upset, and even more so, with a young kitten, so feeding that, then going back to grain free, will cause tummy upset, in most cats, let alone a young kitten. If no one did the 2 week transistion, when switching foods, then that further upset her little system.
Kittens that young, need to be on one kitten food. Even with what you are feeding, the Wellness Kitten and the Wellness Core, your feeding her 2 different foods, which is further upsetting her already upset little system.
I would also ask your vet about an x-ray, to see if she has gas pockets and/or inflammed intestines, it would show up as dark spots, on the x-ray, they should show you the x-ray, if not, ask to see it. Also ask your vet about giving her Metronidazole. Thats what they put my kittens on, when the pet sitter gave them adult food, by mistake??? and I came home from a show, to 2 sick 10 week old kittens. One has a very sensative little system, and when he gets tummy upset and/or diarea, they do the x-ray, it shows his intestimes are inflammed, he gets put on Metronidazole, he shows improvement in 3 days, they take the medicine for 10 days, it comes in liquid or pill.
That she is playing like a terror and does not have diarea, is a very very good sign.
