Obviously we said "Yes." We drove to the site in a miserable downpour and retrieved wee kitty. And she is wee. Eyes still blue, a bit wobblly on her feet, clearly not weaned. My vet's office is closed on weekends (the hell????), so off to PetSmart we went for Kitten Formula and bottle. After a bit of coaxing she began to nurse. She's only eating a little at each feeding, but then I'm not sure how much she should be taking in. I got her to pee twice; I'm hoping that means she's not dehydrated (at least not badly).
After each feeding and potty session, I give her an all-over bath with a warm, wet washcloth to mimic Momma Cat's tongue. Kitten looooves this, especially after the indignity (on both our parts) of my coaxing her bladder and bowels to release. So that's why I was up every three hours during the night. I got next to no sleep, and I have it all ahead of me again tonight. Yay! I do confess that the nightime feedings aren't just trying because she needs to squirm and mew for about ten minutes before she finally settles down to nurse; when I walk into the room, I'm terrified she won't be breathing. She's so tiny. I just want her to be okay.
I'll take her to the vet tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed and think happy, healthy thoughts for our little as-yet-unnamed girl!
The pics aren't the best quality, but she's awfully squirmy. This was her morning face:
Knowing she'd be missing snuggling with her littermates, I thought she might like some beanie kitty company:
