I just got a 6 week old kitten and I've had her for a week now. Just suddenly the other night she started to throw up a lot and become very tired. She was throwing up food, but this morning she is throwing up white foam. I also noticed she walks kind of funny, her back legs are a little shaky and instead of walking she'll sit on the floor and j just look around. She is usually hyper and full of energy, I don't think she got into anything, I keep a very close eye on her and we don't have any chemicals lying about our apartment and she's never been outside. I can't really afford a vet right now, and so I'm not sure what to do. The other cat we have in the apartment is fine. The only thing that could have caused her to possible throw up is, she likes to eat the older cats food which is Purina Indoor Cat Food. Any Suggestions?

Kittens are very susceptable to infection or injury during these early stages, especailly before their shots. The problem is how can you treat for something unknown, it could be posionibg, it could be a stomach bug, it could even be that she has been squashed somehow ehich has caused her some internal injury, there is no way of telling without the advice of a vet. All i can say is that she really does need to get to a vet as soon as possible, check to see if there are any animal charities in your area that can help with cost.
