I'm taking care of an orphaned kitten about two weeks old. yesterday I noticed his urine is darker than usual. Today he was a bit weak and didn't drink as much as before. so I took him to vet and they gave him an enema with paraffin he has been worst ever since. He doesn't drink milk and is really really weak. his limbs are almost like noodles. please tell me if there is something I can do.

At two weeks old he is not getting the immune protection of its mothers milk, a good quality replacement kitten milk, fed with a shringe every two hours over the 24 hours... but scourging his tummy with parafin is very old fashioned Vet treatment and won't help him if his immune system is compromised already....... suggest you call cat rescues places near you and see if they have a mother cat who already has kittens who could potentially 'adopt' him and feed him herself

Milk is not the best choice for cats. Try giving it water.
