tiny kitten acting WEIRD
i've had these 3 little kittens for about 2 weeks now. my boyfriend found them stranded on a job site. although when we got them they all three looked fairly healthy. one kitten in particular is the runt. She's always acted a little funny since day one. the other two kittens play together and run around and have a good time. but the other little kitten (i'm not sure how old they are but they all have little teeth now but they're like really young) kind of keeps to it self. looks like it's going to die when it's just sitting there. but if you pick her up she purrs some and will meow and she does eat. i try to feed all of them about the same amount. but she's just not really getting any bigger and the other two are growing good. what could possibly be wrong?! because like i said she eats real good but it seems like she's getting worse. we give them store bought milk that is for kittens but my boyfriend lately has been trying to feed them some wet kitten food. could this be it? but like i said she's always acted a little funny. could it be something mental?? is she retarded?!?! PLLLEEAAASSSEEEE help me, around where I stay the closest shelther puts ALL cats and kittens down. i don't want her to die. please helP!!!!!!
p.s. also one thing i notice is that she shakes her head more than the others.....

well if she is the runt then it is always possible that she may have something wrong with her. But I am not a vet and no one can really tell you what the problem. The best thing you can do is to find a vet and get her checked out. Kittens can be prone to illnesses especially if they were taken away from their mum too early. In fact all your kittens probably need a good looking at by a vet, he will also be able to advise about vaccinations etc for them all.
Looking after kittens is a real responsibility and vet care will have to be high on your priorities.
i wish you every success with your new furry family.
