I am sorry Blacky is not feeling well.
Rub a drop of pancake syrup or honey into her gums in case she is hypoglycemic.
Drain the water from a can of tuna into a bowl and see if she will lap it up for hydration. If she does offer the tuna.
get a jar of baby food chicken or turkey with no onion or garlic.
Warm it to bring out the aroma. You can add a tablespoon of warm water to dilute it and feed with a dropper. Put it n the side of her mouth where there is a space between her teeth.
Please let me know how she is doing. Just press reply and I will be here for you.

Blacky and Snoopy died before I got an answer. Then the next day two more kitten came down with it and I took them to the vets. It cost me $105 but they are still alive and striving.

I am so sorry you lost Blacky and Snoopy. What a tragedy!
How are the two you took to the vet doing?
