I came home tonight to find Ditch Kitty outside my door again. I thought she was dead. It took much prodding to get a response from her.
I went to the local pet supply store and got a small cage, food, some kitty litter, and a litter box. I find my allergies don’t bother me so long as I keep my distance. If this works, I’ll keep her myself.
I cleaned her up and offered her some food, but she wasn’t interested. I put her in the cage and set my heater nearby to keep her warm. She cried a little at one point, but it was so weak it was barely audible. I took her out and put her in the litter box. She urinated, but she’s too weak to stand, I had to hold her.
I held her for a while before putting her back in her cage. She’s been sleeping for about an hour now. She’s utterly emaciated and her breathing is quite laboured. I hope she makes it through the night.
