    Awe, your poor kitty. Is she loosing weight? Does she drink okay?
    Maybe you can get a second opinion from another vet?

    YES she is loosing wieght she is very bony, she does drink water we are trying everything we give her poland spring water, we hand feed her pedialyte about twice a day, and bought her eukenuba kitten she seams to like it but eats very little maybe 10 kernals a day or less. we brought her to two doctors and neither of them could find anything, we just recently changed her type of cat littler to yesterdays news which is suppose to be 100 percent newspaper we figured it was the safest?

    Hi. I'm sorry your kitty is so sick and also that you are having trouble finding a good vet. You may want to try a 24/7 emergency vet clinic. They have some of the bests vets there. Those people really know their stuff. It's more expensive, but at least they will be able to help your kitty. At this rate your kitty can't keep going on like this. Kittens can go downhill so fast and needs proper vet care. I hope your kitty hangs in there. (edited for a spelling typo)

    I wonder if you could get her to eat some Nutri-Cal. It is a nutritional paste often used for sick or recovering animals.

    Hi, I just wanted to tell you I have 2 12 wk old kittens and at 9 wks they were around 1 lb 7oz.they do not sleep all the time however,Cats do sleep alot tho.also did you change the food they were eating at the breeders? That should be done slowly,that could make him sick.also the change just moving to a new home can cause stress.I would try canned
    kitten food most cats love it! mine chow down on it morning and nite and hav dry food down at all times that they eat during the day.I really think the kitten will eat canned food.

    Poor baby girl! I'm really glad you took her to the vet, though. I'm sure she is in very good hands and getting the best of care. I wish your kitty all the best. Please keep us posted.

    Ok :wink: the test day two(CBC)came back vet found that she has a virus so I must now give her shots of an antibiotic

    Why would the vet prescribe antibiotics for a viral infection? I thought antibiotics are for bacterial infections.

    :eek: Hooray!!! I'm so glad she's doing better. You're going to need to use a waterproof baby blanket/sheet if she keeps giving you presents.

    Hi. I'm glad to hear she is eating now.

    I realize you were just at the vets, but if she's urinating outside of the litter box she may have a UTI (urinart tract infection). I'd take her back to the vet to have this checked. It's not expensive to treat. It could also be due to other medical problems and even behavioral problems (i.e. being upset with you about the injections), but it's best to rule out medical problems like a UTI first, before you try anything for behavioral issues. If she does have a UTI they can be painful and she will associate her litter box with pain and opt to urinate elsewhere.
