I have rescued a kitten. It was a little weak from the beginning. It didn’t show much interest in eating or drinking. However it has now completely stopped eating or drinking. I have fed the kitten an egg yolk and glucose solution today. However, it also has bloated belly. It is mostly swollen on one side especially. It has pooped four times in last two and half days. Last two time it was softer but not liquid. It also has vomited thrice today. It has now become very weak and not socializing. It is midnight at my place now. Any suggestion regarding what should be done would be helpful.
