Kitten Catastrofy!!

Tigger has weird gunt in his eyes. I can't take him to vet either he's only at most a week or so old. Is there some sort of way I could give him an examination?

Heya Zoey;

If Tigger's eyes are a little gunky, try very gently wiping them with a cotton pad lightly dampened with plain, warm water.  His eyes are likely still closed, kittens do not open them at least a week, sometimes as much as 2 weeks, after birth.

If momma cat is not available, you'll also want to gently wipe his behind with a dampened washcloth (a little texture is useful) to stimulate his pooping.

Good luck!
