[@349735,onestarrynight] thank you so much ❤❤

How old is the kitten?
If it's breathing through it's mouth then it's sick, they usually breathe through the nose..
Feed him soft food, no milk or cheese..
Watch the litter box, make sure that he is peeing.
And check his poop..
It shouldn't be loose or runny..
[@930795,exita]
If it's for kitties then follow the directions on the label or ask the people at the pharmacy..

I hope your kitty gets better soon..

If you have a baby with trouble breathing, or a kitten or any animal, then use a humidifier. You want warm steamy air where the kitten is located. If you own a humidifier put the kitten inside a very small room and run the humidifier. If you don't own a humidifier, boil water and put it in a bowl. Place the bowl on a table, and cover yourself, the kitten, and the bowl with a large towel or blanket.

Hold the kitten near the bowl so the steam can help him with his breathing.

If you have any Vicks vapo rub, or horseradish root in the house, place a tiny bit of the vapo-rub on the end of a Qtip and rub it on his upper lip.

If you have fresh horseradish root, grate about 1 tsp and place it in the palm of your hand and make a fist. Open your index finger slightly so the fumes can escape, and then hold your fist in front of the kitten's nose.

Other than that, make sure the kitten gets plenty of water, and he should be fine if he is healthy.

Do the steamy bathroom three or four times a day. Use tissue to clear his nose and eyes. If he's not better in a day or so or seems worse at any point, think seriously about getting him to a vet.

Use normal saline you can drip it in his nostrils regularly. You can buy saline nasal drops if you want easier application because it can be a real challenge.

Find a way to get that poor thing to a VET...there is ALWAYS a way!

I just googled it and it says, humidity (which has been mentioned), make sure it has warm bedding and use a cotton ball dipped in warm water to wipe it's nose and eyes. Also it recommends heating up their food as they don't have a sense of smell and the warm food will be more appetizing. They duration is usually around 10 days.

[@423488,curiosi] Also, having seen what they do at the vet, she can try taking the warm food and putting some on the tip of her finger. If the kitten is able to eat at all this will be similar to being fed by his mother.

He can only breath from his mouse?
exita · 26-30, F
[@1001706,OhKelsey] yes ,
Have you tried steam or a humidifier? It's hard since he can't do the work himself.
SoulKey · 26-30
[@406636,causernamebemyusername] Also, make sure he drinks chicken broth to stay hydrated.
[@544672,SoulKey] You have good ideers:3
SoulKey · 26-30
[@406636,causernamebemyusername] It's from experience. Hope your buddy cat gets well soon ^^

When I was in Turkey the cats all appeared homeless and very hungry, so your kitten is lucky to have a home. I hope you can find a vet to examine him.
I'm not a vet but is your cat in too much stress that his throat is closing down? Check it's nose. If it's wet then it's not sick. If it's dry? it's sick
exita · 26-30, F
[@860047,GoMilkMeARiverForMyNippleFloat] what else can i feed him please ? Because i dont have dry food now
[@930795,exita] yes. It's healthier for their teeth than eating wet food or human food all the time
exita · 26-30, F
[@860047,GoMilkMeARiverForMyNippleFloat] yes,i will bring it later

You need to get the kitten to a vet, urgently - little kittens can rapidly go downhill & if you don’t get the right help as soon as possible, you could lose him

[@930795,exita] Just keep him warm and keep him in the steam. Prayers for Maximus are on the way.
exita · 26-30, F
[@387713,4meAndyou] Amin..thank you so much :) ❤

[@930795,exita] Don't freak out...remember that Maximus might have a cold for about 10 days.

Keep him warm, wrap him up, let him sleep.

Since you can't or won't take him to a vet, that's your only option.
When you shower, take him into the bathroom with you, the steam will help him. Also wipe his face with a warm wet flannel.
If you have any eucalyptus or olbas oil put some on a tissue near his bed.

Thank you for best answer!

Of course he can't breath. That's because "breath" is not a verb.

[@406205,Babylon] What's that in Babylonese? Lol :)
[@999755,Backtoscratch] babbleabbledabble :)
