ANSWER #3 of 7

Try giving it a variety of foods. Try feeding the kitten bottle formula, wet and dry food. If that doesn't work I'm sorry but your going to have to bring it to the vet. If you don't the kitten could die, its a serious issue and by becoming a pet owner you took that responsibility on. If you animal is sick you have to get it treated, it is a crime not to.

Try feeding him bottle formula I raised several kittens and I had a similar problem with a special one. The kitty is really young so is going to be a lite hard for you to feed it he really needs his mom. If that doesnt work you'll have to take it to the vet or it could die. Take the best care of it as you possibly can. The kitten needs a lot of care.

ANSWER #6 of 7

STOP THE ASPIRIN!!! You'll kill him!! STOP STOP STOP!!! Take him to the Vet, and make sure he has some clotting factors left!

Cats are much more sensitive to aspirin. Cats cannot break down aspirin as quickly as dogs (or humans), and thus, the cat can be easily overdosed with the accumulation of the drug in the body.
