Got the call late in the morning: wish it had been sooner. The woman had found this little one at her doorstep (!) when she came from work late last night. So he had been at least 12 hours with no food, in the cold. He was breathing, but immobile. I put him right onto the heating pad, and warmed up some kitten milk replacer. He was about two months old; he'd survived this long...he had that going for him. He could barely swallow, but I got about 9 milliliters of the "KMR" into him, then gave him some warm fluids with dextrose and electrolytes in it, also some B-12. Cleaned his eyes and behind a bit...virtually no fleas, and he was pink, not the pale of an anemic cat. Also good. But usually they perk up after this treatment, and he did not. An hour later, called a homeopath friend, who recommended the remedy sulphur. She called back just as I'd finished giving it, and said she thought 'wait and see' was a better plan...but he did perk up a tiny bit...and got some more milk replacer...not as thin as I've seen them, does have scabies, but that's not too much of a drain. Unusual case. Please keep him in your prayers..
Here he his after the goo came off his eyes, resting up on the heating pad! Bless his heart...I've named him Gabriel.
