(oklahoma)

i found an abandoned 2 week old kitten in the barn... cold, covered in fleas, starving and barely alive!! i brought it home and have been bottle feeding him, which was going great!! he is now 3 weeks old, fat, playful and full of energy... until today! when he eats, he like attacks the bottle... and today when he did that, milk came out his nose!! he asperated himself!! that was around 4pm. then when i got home from the farm around 8pm i went to check on him, and he wasn't himself! he is very weak and hardly moves... i know it is because he asperated himself, i guess what my question is... what can i do for him?? i will take him to the vet first thing in the morning, i'm just affraid with the way he is acting he won't make it threw the night!! what does the vet do for an asperated kitten, and what can i do??? do all asperated kittens die?? plzz tell me my kitten, FELIX isn't going to die!!!

Hi
there isn't much you can do for your kitten until you can get the little chap to the vets in the morning. you can never be sure what has caused his condition. If he was covered in fleas he may even be suffering from anaemia which is common for kittens with bad flea infestations.

keep him warm, make sure he has access to some fresh water and keep things quiet and calm for him. Often rest is the best cure and the vet will be able to do more for him in the morning.

I wish you all the best and I hope your little fella pulls through, they are tough little guys you know.

i have lost of pages about kitten care which you may find of further help for the future. here is the first page
