I'd like to appologize for what is going to be a pretty long post. 3 days ago while I was at work We cam across a little kitten in the bathroom that someone had brought it without anyone noticeing and left there she's a cute little thing and accually was pretty tame. So I put her in a box and brought her home with me. she's pretty under weight and a little dehydrated but other wise pretty healthy I had a close friend of mine ( she's a vet tech with only one class away from being a full flegged vet) look her over pretty good and the only thing we can tell is wrong so far is she has worms I have an appoint to see the vet in a few days I couldn't get in any sooner. she's 8-10 weeks old I followed all instruction that the vet gave me over the phone when I called for an appointment so far so good she likes to be held and purrs almost instantly when she's touched and is eating well she won't drink and water just yet but i do have some kitten formula that she's been drinking and i'm adding some water to it and her kitten food hoping in the next few days i could eliminate the milk all togeather. At night I keep her in a box so I can hear her and she's seemed to be just fine. this morning I woke up to a missing kitty. she couldn't get out of the box yesterday but must have figured it out over night. We searched my house from top to bottom and finally found her in a crawlspace like hole in my basement (no idea how she got there ) there is only one way in and one way out through this square cut in the wall about 2 feet tall and 2 feet wide no one can fit in there to get her out with all the pipes and insulation thats in there (it's a very old house with some new additions made to it by it's previouse owners so the only thing I can think of that this hole was for is the water lines for our kitchen sink and I plan to cover it as soon as I get her out from this type of thing happening again) but for now I'm stuck she just won't come out on her own ( i've tried food milk treats, and toys I even went so far as to send my other cat in to see if maybe she would follow her back out unfortunatly she didn't and my cat as wonderful as she is doesn't understand to pick her up and carry her out) so now i'm stuck and am just out of ideas I know that she's scared but it gets really cold under there at night and if it rains it does get pretty wet I'm terrified that this little kitten is going to get sick or worse from being under there. I'm not sure what to do. Does anyone have any ideas? anything at all would be very helpful and much appreciated.
