I found them in my yard, the mother ditched them.. but 3 of them died and another looks like hes going to also.. hes not going to the bathroom very well and hes got a stuffy nose... the other kittens kept sucking on his "no no" spot so i separated them

is there anything i can do for him besides take him to the vet? i cant afford to pay for it

you better take them to a humane society or shelter where they might be able to get help. since you can't afford to help them that's their only chance. please do it right away. let us know what happens. good luck.

it seems they need medical attention. medication. this is beyond the scope of what we can provide. that's why if you can't afford a vet then maybe a shelter or humane society can help.

How old are the kittens? Also are you stimulating them to use the bathroom?

Check around your area. Maybe there’s an animal organization by you like there is by me. Search on the Internet for one located where you live, I'm sure they'll gladly help. Other then that, I agree with catman, take the kittens to the humane society. They'll be able to provide what’s needed for the kittens, medication and such. Good luck and let us know what happens.

Oh okay. I know how you feel. I've had little kitties before, as well and I know it's tough. :) Hope everything turns out for you and your little babies.

Awe The poor little babies. That is so wonderful they have you to take care of them! That is a lot of work and very few people would do that! Good luck with the kits!

I'm sure thats hard on you! Take it easy and know you did all you can. It's part of nature. Not all babies are going to make it. Bless their little hearts and yours too!
