2-week old Kittens

SV took into their foster care 2-day old kittens whose mother-cat was hit by a car and died. The volunteers found a nursing cat with her 2-week old kittens.  Two days later the cat did not have milk because she was too sick.

Now 2-week old kittens are much smaller than their then 2-day old kittens. They are suffering from staphylococcosis. The kittens now covered in oozing bumps on their skin.

The verdict of the vet is not very promising:

1. the kittens will die naturally,

2.  euthanize them,

3. treat them with antibiotics (which will cause further health issues that can result in their death).
