Squirt is losing weight again. He'd been doing very well, and was maintaining his weight, and I weighed him this morning. He's back down to 13 1/2 oz. I started syringe feeding him again. Squirt is the kitten from the rescue where they cleaned his cage with Windex with ammonia. He finished his antibiotic 3 days ago. How do I keep weight on him? What do you guys recommend? My husband suggested euthanizing him, as we have had him 3 weeks, and while we see some improvement in that he's not coughing anymore... I really don't want that for him, but I don't want to prolong his suffering either. He doesn't act like he's in pain, more like he just doesn't care. I get the feeling that maybe if I could get some weight on him, he'd get stronger and he'd improve. I am feeding Natural Balance cat food, should I switch him back to the Purina kitten chow? Should I start him on kitten formula? We estimate him to be about 6 -7 weeks old.
