Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum, so please help me out a little Alright, well tonight, I picked up a stray kitten that can't be more than a month old. She's tiny tiny tiny. We have a lot of strays around our appartment complex, and I saw this one a few days ago, right before it got cold. When I first saw her, I knew that it was going to get cold that night, and I kind of freaked out. I came home and got some milk and a big bag to take her back to my place in. She was very hyper, and everytime I bent to scoop her, she would run off... but tonight, when I went to see her again, she just kind of sat there and let me pick her up... she was very sluggish and tired looking. So I got her, and brought her back to my house, where I fed her milk, and she's still sitting in the bathroom on a heating pad. Well, she went poo in there, and while cleaning it up, I noticed that it was runny and a little bloody. I talked to my mom and she suspects that she might have feline distemper or something like that... she suggested that I take the kitty back out to the place where I found her. I'm just wondering if anyone can tell me what they think is wrong with her. I mean, it might be nothing, but I just wanted to get some other people's opinion. I want to keep her here for the night, but I have a sugarglider, and my mom seems to think that if the kitty is sick, it'll get my glider sick. Does anyone have any ideas for me?! I don't know what to do!!!! thanks everyone.
