final update update2 :/. update 1! kitten help!!! i dont wanna watch her die

Posted by   + Show Post
We found a kitten (which is about 4 weeks old according to vet) and I'm fairly sure she is dying.
We were feeding her milk replacement. And water.
She still wouldn't perk up so we took her in and she got dewormed and got fluids. They said niy much else they could do short of a long stay in their care which we couldn't afford :/. Any advise anything to help her? Ughhh I'm a wreck! I wish we could have had her put to sleep. But they wouldn't do it until we could pay in full (Thursday) one day and this tiny
thing has my heart.

Update 6/12 6am central time.
She made it through the night!!!! :)
I'm.tired but we made it! All I keep asking for is just one more
hour!


Update 2 6/12 5pm
The kitten cant even swallow :( we called around and found a place willing to put her to sleep for 40. So dh is pawning the TV so we can pay the fee. I'm not complaing about money because this little girl is worth more then a TV. I'm just sad and happy that she wont
suffer anymore.

Final update: at 6:02 penny passed away.

oh yeah see, that ain't right.


Quoting BeverlyKaye9878:

No it isn't. Yes they pass out, but it also puts them into cardiac arrest.




Quoting js321:

hmm that's goo info to keep in mind , had NO idea. I know it was a suggestion, no judgement =] just never heard of itt






Quoting acaisha:

its not really... its actually one of the most humane ways to put an animal down short of shooting it.. they just fall asleep. I am only suggesting it over having the kitten suffer a painful death..

Quoting js321:

that seems harsh to me =[











Quoting acaisha:

if she is really suffering you could put her in a bag or a box..and put it against the exaust of your car.. she will go to sleep and never wake.. its a pretty painless way to go.. my mom did that for a sick rat once when we couldn't afford to put it down..

The only thing I know is the bottle feeding with the cat formula. Sorry.

I'm sorry, my bff is fighting to keep her little kitten she found alive. Same age. The feral momma dropped it moving it in the middle of the street and then refused to touch it after my friend saved it from a truck.

It had a bad night but that was because it got too cold.

Anyways op...please don't feel bad, the momma might have abandoned it because she knew something was wrong with it and it was gonna die. sadly nature just works that way sometimes and its horrible to watch.
