Thanks to all who responded: Tammy/CyclopsGrl, PHMadameAlto & Quill:

Spirit is EATING! He is amazing - he has come so far in just one short week. I force-fed Spirit for the first few days (after he didn't eat for 24 hours). I went to the vet and he recommended Hill's Prescription diet "a/d". I force-fed Spirit 50% water/food using a syringe. Within 2 days of force-feeding, he was eating with the other two kittens. He is frail and thin (compared to his twin sister Willow) but his appetite is back!

He has to go back to the vet again. He burned his tongue and mouth. His tongue is healing okay, but his mouth doesn't look good at all. He has almost finished up his antibiotic Cefafroxil, but his mouth is raw and sore.

Attached is a picture I took when he was in his "get well" room, to keep the other kittens away from him. He will try to play with a toy. But he doesn't run around with the other two kittens like he used to. I just hope and pray he doesn't have any permanent brain damage!
