Human sinus meds ??? Like liquid or crushed up pill?? Yes I know only 25% of human dose .... the apple cider vinegar has done wonders they look SOOOOO much better than they did a wk ago


Quoting rissamom224:

Its is a sinus infection!

My kitten had the same thing, look for disinfectant eye drops you can also give them human sinus meds but only give them a half 25% of what you'd take.

Ill try the baking soda ... but honest the apple cider vinegar has done wonders for them


Quoting juicebox.:

Don't use applecider vinegar.  To clean their eyes, dilute some baking soda in water, very mild and blot their eyes.  It most likely a sign of upper respiratory problems, I'd call a vet, you may need antibiotics.

ALSO an adult would know better than to keep those kittens suffering.  An adult would known what is past their limitation and do whats right for the animals.  An adult would know just because they are a step up from where they came doesn't mean its good, healthy or even safe  for them to be there.

Quoting ZakkarysMom:

There is no need to name call. Lets be adults here.


Quoting erinsmom1964:

I offered to help that cat's not you. There isnt natural cures for everything and what your doing is animal abuse and neglect. You make me sick. I work in rescue and with shelters that take animals from people like you. Hopefully someone you know has :few more brain cells and turns you in. It says alit that you think the only 2 options were you and the other guy. That's hoarders first BS excuse when we show up to gather all their suck animals up.



Quoting Had3girls:

So it would have been a better idea to leave them in the filth they were living in with some1 that has about 30 cats and doesn't take care of any of them??? I have 2 other cats and I've helped them without a vets help ..... 1 of them I've had for 8yrs ..... I posted about this to get help to help my new family members not to get critisized and told to give them to a shelter so if ur not gonna try to help stay off my post ..... there r natural cures for everything and I WILL find a cure and a way to help them without the help of a $200 bill from a vet






Quoting erinsmom1964:

You cant afford a vet but thought it was a good idea to take on 2 suck kitties? Your not helping your prolonging their suffering. Find a cat rescue and turn them over before you either kill them or cause severe eye damage that leads to blindness or even removal of the eye or infection that then the brain. If you really want ti help them you will stop bring selfish and give them to someone who can properly care for them. If you tell me where your at I'll help you find a rescue







Quoting Had3girls:

I've had them for almost 2 wks .... they are bout month and half maybe 2 wks old I'm guessin ..... no I haven't got them their shots I don't know if the other guy did but I doubt it he didn't seem to care much .... its so sad .... I can't afford a vet so I gotta figure out a vet free option










Quoting erinsmom1964:

Take them to the vet. The idiot you got them from lied and they could loose their vision. I know because I adopted a kitty that happened to also the URI can easily be deadly to small kittens. How old are they? Why haven't they had their shots yet?

I find it ironic this post of yours.  Someone PM'd me after seeing THIS post about the poor kitties.  Why didn't you just drink vinegar???
