Currently she's laying on a heating pad but isn't doing great. She/he apparently has a pretty bad cold and is very congested. We're hoping she makes it until Monday when we can take her to the vet. She hasn't eaten much, a couple drops. But I'm hoping she's exhausted from being sick and left on her own and when she gets rested will eat more. If anyone has any suggestions of how to care for this sweet little baby I would welcome any thougths. Little prayers would be good too...I hope she doesn't die.

About a day or two after we first found the kitties, Mama moved them to a "safer" place. We kept our eyes open but didn't see any of them but occasionally thought we heard a little "mew". Tonight when I went to feed the horses I was sooo sad to find a little one had apparently been stepped on by one of the horses and was dead. Then as I reached to feed Meg (my haflinger) I realized there was a sweet little grey and white kitty laying in the stall. When I picked her up she didn't look good. Her eyes are matted and she has discharge from her nose. When I picked her up she/he let me know she was frightened, cold and hungry. I tucked her in close to warm her up and headed to the house. After a few phone calls we washed her eyes with a warm cloth, wrapped her in a towel and headed to Wal-mart to get some mama milk replacement.
