Wow, I hope that isn't the cause on this little kitten. The kitten is long-haired so I'm hoping the clumping is a gradual buildup of feces that is adhering to the previous mess that got stuck to his/her hair. I'm waiting on a new carrier to arrive tomorrow and then will do my best to get that kitten in it.Good luck! You may end up having to use the trap. I rescued a kitten a year ago that had feces clumped all over it. The poor thing was so weak it couldn't hardly move but still put up a decent fight when I grabbed it and put it in a carrier. I got it right to my vet and they managed to save it and the vet tech adopted it. It turns out the poor little kitten had some sort of problem with her colon and would have died if I hadn't gotten her in when I did.
