This morning, a beautiful little kitten that appears to be maybe 8 weeks old wandered into our courtyard in a big city in Africa. We are in a poor area and there is NO vet care and NO cat food. The worst part is this: one hind leg appears badly crushed and the other appears at least broken, though kitty used it to drag himself into our courtyard. It seems the injury must have happened at least more than a couple days ago because the open part of the wound seems very dry and crusted over. Most cats here in my country are strays. He's most likely been wondering the streets begging since the time of his injury. Please help! What should I feed him? How can I help him to be mobile, even though one of his legs is probably completely lost? My wife has very good medical experience (and we could get some human medical supplies) and we wouldn't be outside considering amputating the bad leg so he can learn to walk with three (it appears far beyond salvaging). Please, any nutritional or medical help would be greatly appreciated!!
