Hello againI have worked out a reply for you below.1. I have to agree, yes time to see the vet. You see young kittens are very prone to infectious respiratory diseases, and the ones which come from the pound are prime candidates. More info via this link : LINK
2. Sadly there is nothing much you can hope to do in this sort of situation in terms of home remedies but your vet can give him prescription drugs such as antibiotics. These sorts of respiratory diseases are unlikely to fatal but they are uncomfortable for your kitten and in some cases can turn into chronic disease.
