    My kitten have obvious colds. They are from wild mother cat who i see has a upper respiratory cough too. Everyone says take them to VETS but some people have no money.. so that is why I am here asking. No kill shelter says they are full and room for sick kittens. What happens in nature with them? Maybe I should just cut them loose back with the sick mother cat and nature run its course or better.. get real ideas about WHAT I CAN DO myself.. I have limited resources and I am trying the best I can. I let the stray cat help with her kittens.. one at a time so I can keep them gentle and adoptable.. Doing the best I can and I sure don't like some of the answers like GO TO A VET. Because that is not possible. I made that clear before. So how about some solutions I can try and not get all high and mighty with me! They have head colds. Just like I get and get over it in time.. What happens in nature? DO they march into a Vets office? Should this cold run its course in a week like in humans.. I don't go to the doctor. I stay warm and drink liquids and eat healthy food. Why cant this work on Kittens too. They are not lethargic. They just have sloppy eyes. Mommy cat licks them clean or I use warm cotton balls to help them. I can try the chamomile tea in the water.. I was hoping that someone would say my Fish Amoxicillin 250MG would help.. in smaller doses or something.. Anyone still want to help me here or should I stop posting altogether? Thank you for your time and energy.

  • What can I buy to treat my kitten's cold and funky swollen eyes?

    I rescued 5 kittens with runny eyes.. stuck together eyelids, and a little milky discharge. Eyes are pitiful looking and pink. In two cats both eyes Swollen shut. The others have it in one eye.

    I rescued 5 kittens with runny eyes.. stuck together eyelids, and a little milky discharge. Eyes are pitiful looking and pink. In two cats both eyes Swollen shut. The others have it in one eye. I cant afford to take the kittens to the vet. But I can doctor them myself with some help and advice from others who have been in a similar situation. Can I buy antibiotics at the Feed store. I have some Amoxcillin 250mg i got a few months back.. or I can buy fresh. But where do I get oral suspension antibiotics for kittens without the cost of a vet visit? Suggestions? I need to have them well so I can find good homes for them.. Thanks
