Hello, I'm new and I need advise. My son found a kitten the other day in our yard. At first he seemed fine, just a bit dirty. After close examination we noticed the hair on his back was clumpy with dried blood. Obviously attacked, or even hit by a car. We cleaned him up real good with soap & water, but just to find that blowflies had laid eggs around his hip area. We've been washing him off, and keeping the flies away, and he seems to be doing much better. I'm still concerned with his health though. I can't afford the vet bills, but I can't turn my back on him either. The eggs seem to be gone, but he won't eat much (only a bite here and there). He has "slime" in both eyes, and his nose, and has trouble breathing through it. He is skinny and weak, and sleeps all the time. If anyone has some suggestions, I'm all ears. By the way we named him Marv. Short for Marvel. Thanks!
