kitten seems ill

I've noticed my kitten (4 1/2 months old) being very lazy lately and laying around all the time, he is usually very active, but now seems to be avoiding walking. When he does walk he seems wobbly and almost like his legs are bending.

He has even fallen in the cat box well doing his business. His face looks almost changed as well. I fear he might be in need of going to the vet but I have no money to take him and worry he might die. Do you have any idea of something it might be? Or if its something that needs to be changed that might be making him sick?

No I'm sorry, your kitten sounds like they desperately need to see a vet and there is no way that a diagnosis could be made without a full examination.

Kittens are very susceptible to illness and can go down hill very quickly if not treated. So I'm afraid a visit to the vets is your only option.

telephone your local vet to see if there are nay organisation sin your area that can help with vet costs. there are often charities for animals that can help, especially during these difficult financial times.

I wish you all the best.

best wishes kate
