Sick kitten after rescue

Hello. My father recently rescued three little kittens from the middle of the desert on a corner street, who seem to be about a couple months old maybe three months. Two of them seem to be doing fine, and growing normal, but their is one that has been sick from day one that she was rescued. She has a runny nose, watery eyes, and does not seem to be growing at all. Whenever I feed her, she turns into a monster though. She eats so much, way more than the others do, and always seems really hungry. My concern is her health, and right now I can't afford a vet. I was wondering what alternatives I can use for the kitten to get better. I love my little kitten, and she seems to love life. I really want her to get better, and start to grow, especially healthy. If their is anything I can do will you please help me with some advice?

Hi well it could be that this kitten was the runt of the litter and that is why she is smaller and sick. Now the ill health may be able to be over come if it is not something congenital. To be honest there really is no alternative way to find out what is wrong with her apart from visiting the vet.

All I can suggest is that you take a look at my web pages about kitten care which will advise you to their needs and how you should look after them. here is the first page
