4 week old kitten

me n my mate are havin to hand rear a kitten she been doin well for 2 weeks but we noticed over the last 3 days shes coughin and snuffling ,shes still eating but just worried what should we do and what do you think it is thanks

Hi sounds to me like she may have caught a cold, the trouble is it could turn into cat flu which can be very dangerous for a kitten. please my page about this here

A kittens immune system is not up to full stregth yet and so they do need a lots of extra care.
To be honest with you it really is worth taking this little one to see a vet just for a check up the vet will be able to advise as to their general health and how best to take care of her current condition.

I also have lots of pages on my site about bringing up kittens which you may find of further interest too here

best wishes and good luck
