I am fostering a momma cat and her 5 kittens. My best guess
I am fostering a momma cat and her 5 kittens. My best guess is they are around 4 weeks old. A couple of the kittens are having issues with a matted eye, which I've been cleaning with a warm, damp washcloth. As far as I can tell, they are not showing signs of nasal drainage, nor do I notice any color to the eye drainage. I've not noticed a decrease in appetite or activity level, either. Should I be doing anything else for their eyes, or to prevent this from being spread to the other kitties? I doubt the momma was UTD on vaccines, or ever vaccinated for that matter. Thanks!Brandi

My kitten (turns 1 year this month) isn't acting like
My kitten (turns 1 year this month) isn't acting like herself this morning. She isn't purring at all and she usually purrs at the drop of hat. She is eating.I noticed the trash can that hides the terro liquid ant bait was moved. So she may have eaten some of the poison. The active ingredient is borax.Should I take her to an emergency vet? Is there anything I can do for her at home?
I have 3 purebred burmese cats, the father and mother are 11View more cat veterinary questions
I have 3 purebred burmese cats, the father and mother are 11 months old, and a kitten that is 6 weeks old.The male cat is healthy and eats well. He is 8 pounds. But he is also a bully chasing and pouncing on the mother and kitten all the time.I came home a couple days ago and couldn't find the mother and kitten anywhere. Finally I found they together in the closet in a dark corner hiding.The female (mother) is only 4.5 pounds and isn't eating. I took her and the kitten to the vet yesterday, she has diarrhea and is dehydrated. They gave her an IV with fluids at the vets office. They gave me amoxicllin for her and the kitten. They also gave me special digestive care food for the mother to eat.The 6 week old kitten hasn't eaten food yet and is still trying to nurse from its mother. It has an upper respiratory infection and is taking the amoxicllin also.They told me to feed the kitten with a syringe using the Royal canine kitten patte. This works, but it's frustrating that the kitten won't eat the food off a plate. The mother cat still isn't eating her special digestive food either.My questions are:1. Should I keep the male cat separated from the other two, at least until the mother and kitten are both eating regularly?2. Since they mother cat still isn't eating should I feed her with a syringe?3.How can I get the kitten to eat food itself, without using a syringe to feed it? Should I mix it's food with milk?
