My name is***** have been a veterinarian for 11 years. I am sorry to hear that Silver is having issues. The swishing sound that you are hearing may be a heart murmur. In some cases, heart murmurs can be very loud and you can hear, feel, and see them. Some murmurs are problematic and some are not. Many will go away on their own. It is important that you get him in as soon as you can, to see what is going on, but if you will not be able to afford it until Saturday, you should wait as they will likely need to do diagnostics, such as x-rays or an ultrasound of the heart. Unless you can borrow money and a car for sooner. In the mean time, you will want to keep the kitten warm and make sure that it is getting enough food from the mother via nursing. You can clean the area around the eyes as needed, but allow them to open naturally.
