Well, I just got this 5-week old kitten added to my little home. His eyes are a bit gunky so I was told to use warm water to clean it and a little neosporin to help, even. I don't know if it's because he doesn't have his mom now but he meows a lot
and I haven't really seen him eat or poop a lot. He eats the dry food (I moisten it up with water) that I give him but I rarely seem him actually drink the water.
I guess I'm a little nervous. I don't know if I should take him to the vet or how much it would cost. Can anyone help me? Maybe they know what's wrong? ;_;Edit
: I want to thank you all for all your help so far. :) I was crying out of fear but I feel a little more secure with some advice. Right now I'm trying to figure out what formula I should get and I will call the vet tomorrow.
My roomie and I also decided to let him sleep with us every night the moment we got him.. I keep him curled against my chest or let him burrow in the pillows on top of my head. He'll wake up meowing in the middle of the night but I guess that's part of not having his mommy and siblings now.Edit 2
I got KMR for Kain (His name) and he just went berserk! He sucked that stuff right up and has calmed down for the first time since he got here.He got a little bit messy with it but he seems very happy to have it in his system. :D
I'm going to call that vet place tomorrow that leatherfemme
gave me, since it seems that place has high approval ratings. The reason I asked about price was cause my next pay check has to go to a lot of rent. e_e Can't give the kitty a good home if I don't have one! XD
Someone wanted pictures. Instincts told me to nest him up yesterday, funnily enough, so I had him nice and burrowed in. Here's so shots.( Collapse )
