There are a multitude of problems these kittens could be facing.
Worms
Lactose intolerant - poor milk quality - what are you using?
Are they urinating and having bowel movements? No diahhrea? If not, do you know how to help them eliminate?
There are also the many different illnesses the kittens could have which won't show up without tests.

May I suggest, gently, that if you do not have the funds to take these kittens to the vet to be checked that you surrender them to the nearest shelter so they have a chance at life? Other than that, beg, borrow, credit cards, they NEED to see a vet.
Good luck!

They need to be on a milk replacement, not something like Whiskas which basically has nothing in it that is good.
A good pet store will have kitten milk replacer. I use Nutrience Transition. There are other kinds as well. It comes in a powder form and you mix it to the directions and feed.
The other issues still need to be addressed. We are not vets. We can't diagnose anything. I was just giving you some ideas of what could be wrong. Kittens still need to see a vet asap!

Hi
When I found my cat at around 4 weeks old I went and got milk from the vet, and he almost died. He was old enough to be eating solid food. So i went and got him jars of baby food, but the meat kinds. Also fed him tuna and that helped him perk up. He was just starving as there wasn't enough nutrients in the milk formula I was giving him.

I'm sorry, there must be a rescue group or an SPCA-type place in Trenton. I think you should call them, since you are in no position to care for these kittens. They need to be seen by a vet and since YOU HAVE NO MONEY (your caps), they could die in a matter of hours. Please do the right thing.

after each feeding the kittens should be stimulated to have pee, they won't have a bowel movement till they are on food, their mouths should be cleaned also after each feeding because bacteria will grow quickly from any milk/formula left there and the kittens will lick it off

cindylouwho - have you found a way to get the little ones to a vet? If you can't find a way to get them in the best thing to do for the health of the babies is to surrender them. You could always see about fostering them after the health issues have been cleared up. :pray:

That one works! :fingerscr she found a way to help the little ones. My feral momma's kittens were like that, it was a problem with the development of their digestive system, even with us helping the eliminate and vet help none made it past the 3 week mark. :sad:
