Alright so one of my cats had kittens a couple weeks ago, this is the fourth litter of kittens I've been through so im not green at this by any means, but I'm unsure what to do right now given my options.
One of the five of the kittens in just this last week has been barely moving, he was walking around and fine about a week ago and seemed all good, but just in the last 3 or 4 days, he's been barely walking, still meows, but all of the other kittens are running around and jumping and all that, and this guy doesnt walk any further than a few inches. When he is standing, he's all shaking like crazy, and when i put him next to the mother while shes feeding them, he doesnt even make an attempt to try and feed off her.
In the last 48 hours, the cat has moved in total maybe two feet, if that.
So the last two days the kitten hasnt eaten and seemingly cant even walk anymore (it looks like he cant even stand on his back legs anymore, they just drag behind him, IF he even moves). I've come to the conclusion that he isn't going to make it out of this batch of kittens.
So what I'm asking is, what's my most humane option? I've got too many cats as it is and gotta get rid of as many as possible (as in give away), so I dont have the money or the time to take this single kitten to the vet or anything like that (i also spent 500 bucks this month fixing my other cats). So trying to save this cat isnt even an option at this point as far as I see it.
Do i just leave the cat to nature to die off from starvation or whatever it is that's killing it?
Do I grab a plastic bag and snap its neck myself?
Is there a better way to euthanize the cat at home?
What option do you guys think is the best? The most humane option i can really think of is snapping the cat's neck myself, but that's not a prospect i look forward to (I'll do it if i have to, but i would rather not). I guess what I'm looking for is an easier way to kill it, if there even is one.
So guys, give me some options, or just convince me to do it myself. I'll decide either later on tonight or tomorrow what im going to do.
