i have a 4 week old kittn and she is not acting normal. when you pick her up she goes limp and her tongue will occasionaly stick out. she stumbles when she walks. she gets this burst of energy then she stops and falls. i dont know what is wrong with her. will you help me please? her littermate is acting perfectly fine, but she isnt.

sadly sometimes in a litter there is one kitten which how can i put it, isn't quite right in some way. it may be neurological or their may be a physical disablement. Just like some humans are born with a disability so are some kittens.

However their is no way of knowing for sure without a vet taking a look at the kitten. So many things need to be looked at to determine what the issue could be. It may be something simple which can be sorted out if caught early enough, i were you I would not wait and book her in to see a vet as soon as possible.

I hope it is something which can be sorted out for her.

best wishes Kate
