Why my kitten poops watery?

My kitten is 5 weeks.She had been pooping this way for almost 2 days.I m not being gross but her poop is kinda yellowish brown ,runny and sour odor.Am I over feeding her.She drinks milk(not cows milk).She eats three times.She does her business (if u know what i mean) more often than usual.She's still playful.
I'm sorry if its gross.

Kittenhood takes several weeks for the kinks to get ironed out.Maybe she ate something that her stomach isn't ready for yet. Or maybe it's worms, but probably nothing serious, Kitten-siblings may vary in their individual development, but how are the other kittens doing these days? .

I take it the kitten is still with her mom, right? Experts don't advise for kittens to be weaned till they're at least 6 preferably 12 weeks old. First then they'll have the skills and constitution to appreciate a new home. There may even be a law about this.

Advice: describe the symptoms to a person at a pet store if you cannot afford a vet.

Hope this is helpful.

I'm assuming your using milk replacement....that always causes diarrhea. ...its ok....make sure she continues to eat......at this point start incorporating kitten food and start to wean her off the milk...the poops will get better

Milk, with the exception of its mother's milk and lactose-free cow milk, will cause this. Eating too much fibre will do this too. Read the labels and cut way back on food with fibre. Fibre causes the food to pass through the body too fast.

Its probably worms. You should take your kitten to a nearby vet, they will find out for sure what it is. I personally think its to soon to wean her off of her milk. You should wean them till about 6-9 weeks.
I hope you find a good solution.
