This kitten (Wally) is a neighbor's kitten. She has never taken care of kittens before and did not realize that you do not feed 5 week old kittens dry food. He got some caught in his throat and was without air for awhile, another neighbor moved the dry food down his throat using a massaging action on his throat. But afterwards he still could not walk or hold up his head, he was just limp. So she brought him to me. I have used an eye dropper for the past three days (every half hour on the half hour, except at night) forcing nourishment down his throat. I still did not think he would make it but he surprised me yesterday morning. He was still a little wobbly but alert and so hungry he was biting on his blanket and later on the eye dropper as I was feeding him. Today he is playing and has his sea legs, somewhat. Today he goes back home!

i dont think i would give him back to someone who doesnt know how to care for him. be a shame to see your time and compassion go for naught if your neighbor just kills him a different way!
