Ok, my baby sister's cat had kittens 5 wks ago. My sister is on vacation and I am taking care of the kittens. One of the baby kittens eyes is completely shut, at first glance I thought it was dead. It is alive, but I can't get the eyes open. It is a sickly kitten and I have given it extra care, I used a wash cloth and water and it won't bulge, what do I need to do? Any suggestions?

Thanks, it died on the way to the 2nd animal hospital 40 miles away. :( had an upper respiratory infections.
I am so sorry to hear. Make sure the others get a checkup in case they have it also and just aren't showing symptoms. Some cats can go a week or more before the symptoms show up.
I will Monday it will be quite the adventure the otr cats are fiesty. Last car ride was memorable! The mom cat was looking at me after I returned like she knew, I apologized to her. She cuddled the otr kitten.
