Cats/poorly kitten


I have a kitten about 3months old, he was fine till Saturday night when he became very lethargic, won't eat or drink, he has had 1 poo and 3 or 4 wees. I have tried him with a bit of tuna and cooked chicken but still won't eat. I can't get to the vets today because it's bank holiday is there anything i can do till then

no there is not much you can do really until you can get him to the vets. Make sure he somewhere comfortable and quiet to sleep, make sure he has plenty of fresh water near by at all times.

Hopefully it is just a virus that will clear up in a few days (best to the visit the vet any way though when you can)

i hope the little guy is ok again soon
best wishes Kate
