i have an orphan kitten. hes' about 5 weeks old. Only at night he gets really sick with the glued eyes, discharge from eyes and nose and will not do anything but sleep. He is so sick right now I'm not sure if he'll make it thru the night. Is this serious because I really donot have the money to take him to the vet. Thx

Sadly cat flu can be serious especially for a kitten. if not treated they may die. Sorry if that sounds harsh but i have seen it happen before.
really they do need to see a vet so that the symptoms can be treated and managed to try and get the kitten through it and also prevent any lasting damage(my sister found a kitten who had cat flu and although he got through it he had eye problems his whole life).
Dehydration is a danger and you must make sure that the kitten gets fluids.
i have a web page about cat flu which has more details about the condition.
i really hope the little guy pulls through and if you can get them to a vet it really is their best option.
best wishes Kate
