Sad tabby cat

      Hi Michelle.
      I'm sorry that your kitten is unwell, but I highly recommend that you take him to the vet. I am not a veterinarian, and I cannot recommend any medication.
      To remove fleas you can bathe it with warm water and a cat shampoo (do not use for humans, as it can cause problems). Dry it well, thoroughly, and keep it covered with a towel or blanket to prevent it from catching a cold.
      Feed him very soft food, such as boiled chicken for example or cans for kittens (wet food), and well chopped.
      Much encouragement.
