I am sorry to hear about your kittens. How high is their fever? Normal rectal temperature is between 101 and 102.

Are they eating and drinking? If so, the fevers are probably not too high.

Most over the counter pain medications and fever reducers are not safe in cats; Tylenol for example can kill cats.
