I have a new kitten about 7 weeks old, i feed her wet cat food and kitten formula, at about 3 am i woke up to her crying and vomiting, she was cold and a little lethargic, so i put her in a blanket and gave her sugary water to get her blood sugar higher, she's been sleeping from that time and occasionally getting up, it's 5am here now and i will be bringing her to the vet, but i want some advice, since the vet is only there at about 6pm and there isn't a vet emergency close by, do y'all think i should try to feed her? Or any ideas what could be the cause? Also it is possible the formula was a little less warm than usually so maybe from that? I am worried and won't be able to fall asleep

I think she's fine to not eat anything just yet. Keep her warm until. If she acts hungry, offer her a small portion .

Good this with sugar water, or pedialyte. Continue with this.

Goats milk or kmr are mild too...

Good you are going to the vet, what it is I dont know, but its surely more than a coldish formula.

If she wants to eat you can give a small portion to see if she keeps it down. I hope she is better today! Let us know what the vet says.

The cold may have upset her a bit, but unlikely. A kitten cannot regulate their temperature as well as an adult so make sure she is warm. they refuse to eat when cold too. A heat pad on low is good, just make sure she can move off of it if she gets too warm. I would offer her a small amount and see if she can keep it down, make sure she gets water/infant pedialyte too.
