It could be that he has worms.  I have been told that ALL kittens are born with worms.  I don't know if that's true, but worms will cause loose stool.  I would call the vet and ask them if they have any suggestions.  Most likely you'll want the kitten to be dewormed by a vet anyway.  I prefer for them to do it since it tends to work better than over the counter stuff.  And, he'll be needing his shots soon.  Good luck!  

Please let us know what you find out!

Hugs,
Janet

Has your kitten been vaccinated for distemper?It will dehydrate the little guy in no time and is deadly. Is it loose or liquid? Some kittens just have loose stools.Feeding them milk can make it worse....dry food helps. Worms is a big possibility. My puppy was full of them when we got him.so sad, but easy fix.  Dontget wormer over the counter...get it from vet or it may be too strong or not work at all. i love kittens and wish i could take them all home!

It could be parasites, or it could be that the food is causing an upset stomach. What are you feeding him? Have you taken him to the vet yet?

How old is your little guy now?   As others have posted, the likelihood of intestinal parasites is pretty high and could be causing the loose stool.  Most kittens develop roundworms and occasionally hookworms from mom and these are transmissible to you and your family, especially kids.

How is his activity level and how is his appetite?

There really isn't much of a  home remedy that I would recommend prior to a visit to the veterinarian.  Be sure to take a fresh stool sample in when you go and after you visit the vet, be sure to let us know what you found out.   If it is something unusual or even if you just have questions about the diagnosis, be sure to visit our veterinarians in the the Ask a Vet forum here!

Good luck!

Thank you for your response. He is very playful and he eats very well. When I was feeding the wet food he would eat that pretty fast. He's kinda slow with the dry food but he's still eating. Yes I give him milk so could that be the cause?

Milk can definitely cause loose stools in kittens.  So, keep him on a high quality dry food with canned food to help him grow and eat well.

Let us know how things go and don't forget to put some pictures up!
