i used to give my cat 1 baby aspirin every other day for arthritis pain (as recommended by his vet)  THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES HOWEVER -  my cat was about 3 YEARS OLD when i did this and it was for CHRONIC PAIN.  Now he takes cosequin for the arthritis.  I WOULD NOT medicate a kitten without being examined by a vet.  There are lots of questions raised when a kitten is hurt.  Can you provide more information?  Maybe someone can give you better advice.

Don't give a kitten aspirin without checking with a vet. Aspirin is used to regulate temperature, and kitty's temperature will vary over a two hour period by a few degrees normally. They also don't process it quite as well as we do, so unless instructed, it's not a good idea to do.

Unless a cat's temperature spikes above 102.5 (high normal) to about 105-106, aspirin is best avoided.
