    Handling kittens is never a bad thing, even when you give medicine. They get used to being handled, as long as you are gentle and kind, even if they don’t like the meds. However, you can also get ringworm along with your other cat if you aren’t careful. I will post a couple of links for you for information. There are over the counter medications that will kill ringworm, for the cats and you–the only one I can think of now is Lotrimin which is a cream or salve.

    I put them in a cage infront of my house and i cannot let them roaming in the house yet and they keep meowing loudly to let them free..they also seem to be unproductive in the cage..i feel so bad to cage them and if i let them free at the porch i afraid they will go to the street.Any suggestion?

    If you get a large dog crate/kennel and put a litter box in with them, a soft comfy bed or blankets, and some food and water they will have everything they need. Of course cats crave attention and handling so you will need to provide that. Just make sure you wash yourself before touching your other cat. I would get them to a vet and see what they recommend for treatment, especially for the swollen eye.
