Help, whats wrong with my kitten pleaseee :(

My kitten ate around 6 and seemed fine and now it's 11:30 and she won't eat, she's panting and won't close her mouth with her tounge out, she seems like she's shivering, she's staggering around and can't stand long, and when I call her name or put my hand infront of her face she doesn't acknowledge it. What's wrong with her?? Please help me :(

I can't bring her, I have no way there! I don't know what to do! She has little random spurts where she runs to another spot but then she looks like she starts staggering again and can't hold herself up. I don't know what to do, I have no way to get her anywhere and no money!

Okay, wow, in that case, the only thing I can suggest is to put her in a smaller space so she doesn't hurt herself.  Calm her and keep her as quiet as possible. This sounds like a possible poisoning...or a head injury.  If you don't have the means for a vet or to get her there, I'm so sorry, I just don't know what else to say.  It's late, but maybe someone may see this and have an idea.  Please keep us updated, okay?

Also...there has been a recall of Iams and  Eukanuba dry food.  You don't happen to feed your kitten either of those foods do you?  There is a link to the article below your thread.  There had been no reports of illness to date, but there is always a first.  Just a thought

A few other thoughts...was a flea product used today? Like an OTC one?  Do you have plants in your home she could of eaten?  Is there medication in the home where a pill could of dropped on the floor and was ingested? How old a kitten are we talking here?

Jade got it right...it was the OTC flea and tick shampoo...can cause neurological problems, the only thing you may try is to shampoo the kitten again with clear water and get that stuff OFF her asap.....this stuff is very harsh on them, if you have to use such products always get the ones from the Vet they are a little safer....hope she's okay♥
