She is not keeping down kitten food or kitten milk

She is alert. Not my cat btw, mum DMs

Thoughts?

Has she been wormed?

I'd have her down to the vet sharpish.

At vets smile

Well done.

How did she get on at the vet?

Sorry not been back - Christmas Eve Chaos. Thank you for asking smile

Vet said it may be worms or an infection. Has given anti-emetics, anti runs, and some worming stuff. She has put on good weight well since they last saw her. So watching brief. She has not thrown up again since the anti-emetic injection, and is now on a diet of just white fish or white meat, no cat food.

She is the cutest thing on earth. May try to put a pic of her on here tomorrow

Worms was always a possibility. Hope she does well over the festive break. Let us know.

I had this with ours, in the end I put him on cereal free food ie pouches because I realised cereals affect his gut.

He was throwing up and having a runny tummy.

I don't suppose she is feeding kitten cat food fresh out of the fridge? Twas a long time ago, but in our ignorance we did this with our kitten. Then it dawned on me... Now I keep food in the cupboard.

Kitten is fine after worming. Looks like tht was the problem

Glad she's better NormaStanleyFletcher. I'm sure you'll be keeping a weather eye on her nonetheless.

PS - and where's that picture?

PS - and while I don't generally like to second-guess vets, I'm just a little surprised that they didn't worm her the first time they saw her, given that most kittens have worms -which would have avoided your Mum's worry. (You implied that this was her second visit.)
