Hello!

There are several causes that produce diarrhea in kittens, like dietary, infections, and parasites among others.

If your cat is not recently dewormed, it is recommendable to take her to a veterinarian to start with the deworming protocol, in order to eliminate any parasites he could have.

As for nutritions, take following precautions in changing her food. Young kittens are very sensitive to dietary changes. In order to change your cat's diet, you should introduce it gradually, mixing new and old food over a period of days. It will permit your kitten to get accustomed to a new food without hurting her digestive system.
Give your kitten several small meals a day. If they are feed a large amount of food, they can develop an upset stomach.

If you notice your kitten with lethargy, vomiting, and loss of appetite, or if a diarrhea doesn't stop after one week, you should immediately visit a veterinarian.

All the best for you and Pitusca.
