Hi,

I really worry when a kitten won't eat as they can go downhill very rapidly, especially such a young kitten. You can try feeding him some strained meat baby food (with no onion added) but a vet exam is still needed.

Chances of an infection would be minimal for neutering, although still a possibility. Can you tell if the incision looks infected? Does he feel warm, as if he has a fever? Do you know if the little guy has been tested for at least Feline Leukemia and what his vaccine history is? Most shelters will recommend a vet check as soon an possible after adoption, and provide a list of vets willing to do an initial free exam.

As another poster stated, your baby might have been exposed to something at the shelter and may be getting sick. URI can take a few days to cause symptoms after a cat is exposed, and the stress of having surgery can compromise the immune system.

If this kitten were mine, I would take him in first thing tomorrow. You can't be too careful.

Please keep us updated.

PHKitkat
