    Hi there,

    I am in an island in Malasya. 2 days ago I found a small kitten around 6 weeks old on the road. He had his eyes stuck and all the face full of discharge. I took him (someone told me it is a he) to my accommodation and the owners allowed me to have it in my room. I cleaned his eyes with salted water. It looks like the eyes are getting a bit better, still discharge and stuck in the mornings but less discharge during the day but still redness around the eyes. He was very very thin but with good appetite but he just want to eat chicken and fish. What worries me the most is that the poo is liquid and clear green. I think once I saw a bit of blood coming of at the end of the poo but it was not fresh it had dark brown colour. There is not vet in the island. How can I help this kitten with the eyes infection and the diarea? I don’t know much about cats.

    Thanks so much in advance
    Toni

    This poor kitten really needs to see a vet. If you have access to a store (or an online pet store) see if you can get some canned cat food as it has vitamins and minerals that cats need for growing bones, skin and teeth. There is an over the counter medicine called L-lysine that you can grind up and add to the food that helps boost the kittens’ immune system and helps with runny, crusty eyes and sneezes. Sprinkle some on it’s food, it’s tasteless and odorless and most cats don’t mind it at all. This and goat’s milk, which is full of probiotics and we recommend highly here, help with the immune system of cats and kittens. You can find it in the refrigerated milk section (in the US) of the grocery, or in the baking aisle here in powder or canned form. The canned is usually concentrated so add water 1 to 1. These are the only things I can think of other than seeing a vet. Good luck!

    Agree that you should take your kit to a vet. I have no idea where you are in Malaysia but I “googled” “Malaysia and vets” and got many listings. Here are 2 with 4-star+ reviews:
    Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, UPM Serdang
    Animal Hospital
    Serdang, Selangor, Malaysia · +60 3-8609 3889
    Veterinary Care
    Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia · +60 3-7782 3553

    The following site has very detailed info and includes another link to a site with further info:

    Now I have no idea where you are located, how much travel/expenses would be involved, I am only trying to help by putting my research skills to (what I hope) is good use. I hope that you can come up with a plan. KJ
