I hope I am confused about your numbers.  Let's see if I got this right.  You 
say you put a 250mg capsule into 2.5 cc of water right?  The you give the cat 
10 cc (or is that 1.0 cc) of this so, that's 1000mg and you give this twice a 
day for a total of 2000mg a day? If so, WOW that is a LOT of amoxicillin.  
Recommended dosage for a cat is 50mg (5-10mg per pound) once a day, that would 
be .5 cc (point 5cc) once a day for 50 mg if a 250mg cap is disolved in 2.5cc 
of water.  Be sure to shake this very well before taking up the dose to be 
given as it sometimes seperates very quickly in water.  Here is a link to 
pfizer with dosages of their Amoxi-tabs.

  See, this is why this stuff confuses me. (fish stuff).

  I get a 250 ml caplet and compound it in 2.5 cc of water.  Then I give the 
cat 10 cc 2x per day (for a 10 pound cat, dosing it down for kittens) .  That's 
not 50 mg.

    I think my first try would be the amoxicillin.  If you are using the stuff
    you can buy for fish without a script be careful to dose it down, usual 
    for cats is 50mg a day of amoxicillin for 5 to 7 days.  If there is no
    improvement in 5 days, it isn't working.
