6 Week Old Kitten Throws Up & Has Diahrea

Hey, my cat boots just had five healthy kittens until about yesterday. Athena, the biggest of the litter, has suddenly began acting sick. He has a little touch of diahrea, he threw up twice today, and is sleeping a lot. He doesn't want to play, he doesn't want to do really anything. I'm 99% positive I should take him to the vet tomorrow but really I'm just surprised by the sickness. Does anyone have any clue what could have caused it? Did he eat his own poop? Would that do this? Could the kitten chow be causing this? They are all still nursing but lately have began to eat kitten-chow and drink water on the side.

If anyone has any idea what could have caused this so I can prevent the other four from suddenly getting sick do let me know. I have 9 cats, I can not afford this going around. The vet bills would bury me alive.

You need a vet. A 6 week old kitten can get dehydrated and die very quickly.

I agree, we lost a kitten similarly:sad: , they get very sick very fast, you may even want to get to an emergency vet.
