Well first let me start off saying , we have nursed kittens before , but with the help of their mother but this one was all on it's own when we found it. The cat was doing fine , and even opened its eyes. But my cousin was came over and wanted to feed it and unknowingly fed it laying on its side and after that the poor baby hasn't been the same , she hasn't been eating well , and her cries are soft. And to top that off , my little sister forgot to close the pet carrier that we have the kitten in and it climbed out of it and it fell off my bed !! Now it's really cold and weak and doesn't want to eat :( any help please ??!

I've asked a mod to move this thread to the pregnant cats and kittens forum as you'll get more specialist help there. All I can say is get the kitten warmed up as fast as is safely possible. Really hope she pulls through :vibes: :vibes: :vibes: :vibes: :vibes: :vibes: :vibes: :vibes: :vibes: :vibes:

In the meantime StefanZ StefanZ What else needs to be done?

1.  As Colombine said, its need warming up.   I dont know how warm it had earlier either.  Such small kittens cant keep their own body temp, so its not enough to have them in a warm bed. Tey must have a heat source.  Alike a heat pad on a low setting.

Or YOU carry it at your chest, alike Cangaroo...

You can massage her some!  If often helps.

2.  Put some glucose sugar on its gum.  If you dont have real glucose sugar, white caro syrup "Karo", or honey, are OK.  Tis can be done even if she isnt wormed up properly as yet.

It gives instantly more eneryg.

3.  Did you used bottle or needleless syringe / dropper?  Syringe is often easiest.  Tummy down head up,  in the corner of the mouth, cautious not too fast, burp afterwards...

EXACT what  kmr do you use??

Some water or pedialyte, bought or homemeade, may be useful.  Dehydration is a major danger, they easily lose forces if dehydrates...

You do stimulate her, and she pees and poos?  We had cases with dying kittens, which essentially didnt pee and poo, after a good stimulation, they eliminated, and suddenly get much better...

Lets hope she didnt got hurt by falling from the bed.

If she got pneumonia by faulty feeding, she will go, it cant be helped.

But hopefully, there is still live in her, and with a little luck and some vigorous work, she may be saved.

Good luck!

This post really sounds like vetranarian time. ASAP. She may have gotten some into her lung. Sorry that is the best advice I can give and what I would do with my own. Get her to a Dr. before it is too late.
