Answer by Kate
kittens are very prone to picking up illnesses and they can go down hill very quickly too if not treated.

it is impossible to say what is causing your kitten to be ill but the symptoms do sound severe and he needs to see a vet as soon as possible. dehydration can kill very quickly especially in a kitten.

please get him to a vets as soon as you can

i hope he recovers soon

best wishes Kate
