Using a syringe is a sure fire way to make sure they take it all. Some might not like the taste of it so putting it in a small amount of food might not work.

"The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with
him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too."

I would not de-worm her with anything over the counter. Cats especially can be really sensitive to stuff like that especially when they are small. I would consult a vet before you worm her since she is sick and so young. If the eye boogers are green or she stops eating then she needs to go back on antibiotics. Ask your vet if he thinks she has feline herpies. If he thinks she does then ask about giving her lysine which helps boost their immune against the herpies.
Keep her eyes clean with the cotton balls and water like Kait18 said. Take her in the bathroom when with you when you take a hot shower. The steam will help her breath better. The humidifier is also a good idea. You can even put a little Vicks in the water.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Awesome. Thank you for taking the time to reply appreciate the information.

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder He carries me away from all my fears And when the world threatens to fall asunder His mane is there to wipe away my tears.

Just wanted to clarify, I meant put a little Vicks in the water for the humidifier, not her drinking water. Sorry, I write the way I talk.
