Thanks for the question

In direct answer to your question : Amoxycillin is a commonly used antibiotic in the cat, and many vets would use it for upper respiratory tract infections in both cats and kittens.

I personally would use an oral dose rate in the region of 10 mg per pound of your kittens's bodyweight twice a day for five days.

If I have not answered your question fully enough or if you would like to ask more I will be on line for the next hour or so and I will be pleased to discuss your question further.
