Oh their poor eyes. They look older when their eyes are half shut with infection, but when you see how small they are next to Mum...  :'(

they look like they have cat flu, the synulox should sort it out. they would probably do well with fulcithalmic for their eyes too - did the vet suggest it?

they can be off the food because they can't smell it with snuffles, try something very fishy.  although some bottle fed kittens just like to be lazy and get you to keep feeding them, you are probably kinder with your paws than a mummy cat! will they lap at the milk if you put it in a bowel? get them lapping and then much some jelly food in it i'm sure they will get the idea

they look lovely - and i'm sure they will be looking much better soon too

I don't know what sort of container you are putting the milk, milk/food mix in, but on the couple of occasions I have weaned kittens I used a hamster food bowl which seemed to work well as they are small enough to get a small distance between bottle, bowl and kitten to encourage them to use it by the usual methods. I used to dip my finger, but maybe you would need to dip the teat on an empty bottle in this case so it get used to lapping.

They are lovely Ron  :Luv2: :Luv2: :Luv2: hope all goes well with weaning the little one  :hug:

Have they been checked by a vet Ron? Just wondering if maybe there could be a medical reason why he isn't eating?
