Unhappy New Kitten- pics added

Hi! I am new here. I just adopted a new kitten from a rescue at a vet clinic. She got her spay on Wed. Which is the same day we took her home. Since she has been home, she has not eaten and is very lethargic. She is drinking and using the litterbox, however. She is 3 months old. I have made an appt with the vet this afternoon, but until then does anyone have any ideas about what may be the problem? She has had her shots and medical care etc... I am worried about her.

Hi & welcome!

Don't be worried. It happened to many of my kits after surgery.
I remember the vet give them a special Hill's wet food & instantly began to eat.

Good luck & pls make us posted

Thanks, I hope so. I made a mistake in my post. We got her on Tues, not Wed. so it has been 2 days with no eating. I will post again tonight with an update.

Welcome, and thank you for giving another unwanted kitten a forever home. I think you are wise to bring her to the vet today and will watch for an update. Hope everything is okay.

What's your new furbaby's name?

We named her "simmer" like "simmer down" because she has been so calm and quiet. We have a dog and a 3 yr old and she has been amazing with them both.

Took her to the vet. He will be keeping her overnight to force feed her, check her for parasites, and upper respiratory illness and get her back on her feet. I'll post again when I hear anything else.

Vet called, no parasites. He thinks she may be getting a respiratory infection. He gave her an anti-inflammatory and fluids and got her to eat a little food and I will check on her again tomorrow to she if she perks up.
