Okay, so I've been reading online all over the place about home remedies and other things that can help a cat pass his stool. I've tried almost everything; Mineral Oil, Stimulation, Changing his food to Wet, Giving him milk, Massaging him, and nothing is making him poop. Occasionally, he'll move to the litter box and pee; not a lot, but it's there. He eats regularly, and he stopped drinking water, but I've been force feeding him water. I've considered using a finger to remove the stool, but I fear injuring my cat (He's only 5 months). I also read that it's best to take him to the vet, but I haven't any money to pay for this kind of trip. Does anybody out there have any advice about how to deal with an impacted cat? Has anybody attempted the finger thing? Did it work? Also, how long can a cat survive with out any bowel movements? Please, I need help!
