Good morning - I'm Dr. Sara. I'm a licensed veterinarian who works exclusively with dogs and cats. I'm sorry to hear that your kitten hasn't been doing well.

I understand that you may no longer need our help, but I just logged on and see that your question is available. Please forgive the delay.

I'm very worried about your kitty based on what you're describing. It's possible that he could be having hypoglycemic episodes (low blood sugar), in which case applying karo or light corn syrup to his gums will help bring his blood sugar up.

Unfortunately since little babies don't have a great capacity to fight off diseases on their own, I would suggest that you have him to the vet as soon as you're able. I'm very concerned about what you're describing. Please let me know how he's doing today.

~Dr. Sara
