I am sorry the baby is not feeling well.

It is fine to feed tuna to a kitten. If he has diarrhea Add either one tablespoon of rice cereal or boiled white rice to a can of wet food or baby food chicken with no onion or garlic.

He may have a sore throat so give him a drop of honey every 4 hours to sooth it.

For his eye, apply a damp teabag. The tanic acid in the tea will bring down any swelling.

Please let me know how he is doing. Just reply her or if you prefer we can speak on the phone.
