My little kitten

by Nora

I found a kitten, decided to home it for awhile till it's old enough to fend for itself. But my kitten is too skinny! And its saliva has a strong bad odor to it. Why is this so? And due to this problem, my parents don't feel happy taking care of her as they say maybe i'm causing her more harm than good by bringing her in and not knowing how to treat her. And perhaps having 3 other older cats may be the cause to this problem? Please do help me:(

Hi unfortunately stray cats can pick up all sorts of things and they really do need to have a check up from a vet. there could be so many things which may be wrong, from mal-nutrition, fleas, worms, tummy upsets etc.

Kittens are particularly prone to illness and do need a lot of care. if you want tot make care of her properly you will have to make sure she gets the best kitten food, that she is flea and worm treated and also gets any shots she may need in the area where you live.

It really is best to take her to a vet though. Poor little thing, I do hope you can continue to care for her but if not please take her to a animal shelter rather than letting her go.

best wishes Kate

Today I bathe her, she seems a little better compared to that day. I'll definitely take care of her. Putting her up to animal shelter is my last resort, really. I'm feeding her with vitamin and wet food. Hopefully it'll help her. Booking an appointment next week for her to visit the vet. Thanks dear.
