Thanks so much for requesting me. I am sorry the kitten is ill.
Rub a drop of pancake syrup or honey into her gums in case she is hypoglycemic. That should perk her up.
Drain the water from a can of tuna into a bowl and see if she will lick it up for hydration.
Make sure she has no fleas making her anemic
Let me know what is happening.
We can speak on the phone if you wish.
