Awww poor baby.. :(
well done you for saving his life!!
firstly it is very important to get him checked out by your vet asap..
he may have any number of things wrong with him..
ie: fleas, worms, ticks, plus other worse diseases :cry:
your vet can advise..
plus the vet will advise the age and a suitable diet for the little mite. :wink:
Keep him issolated with a covered hot water bottle and a few teddies to snuggle into..
try and spend as much time with him as possible.. and slowly ingroduce noises..
the radio is a good place to start..
keep it very low for afew days gradually raising the volume..
make sure you wash your hands properly & a change of clothes before you handle your own cat, until your sure he has a clean bill of health oh and piccies please xxxxxx

good luck with the little one :D

i can't add anything more than what sue has already said, just fingers crossed that he's in good health & that he's old enough to eat solid food, it will make it easier for you.

let us know how you get on :wink:

well last night i left out some solid food and was sryingin cimicat to him and i woke up this morning went into bathroom and all the food had gone... so im puzzled and also looks asthough he has been in the litter tray scratching around .. but wat is puzzling me is he is soo small he cant be more than 5 weeks very fluffy a reall sweety. but very muddy and his coat isnt in great condition so i definitly think hes feral. i just hope he will make it, but me and husband have decided we probably wont keep him as we would like to get another bengal at some point... and he wont let me hav 3 cats in the house lol ... but i jus want to get this lil one fit and healthy ..

When I moved house, I had a feral living in my garden, I fed him outside, (We had a cat, she had been with us 10yrs at that time) He wasnt agressive at all, after a year I seen him out of the corner of my eye sitting in the living room doorway, the back door was open as it was warm. I fed him in the kitchen, he still kept his distance. After about 2 wks he came further into the living room. I had a cat bed and pointed to it and said get into your bed....he did!!! :shock:

I noticed he was long hairded and full of excrement and knots. I showered him (under protest, but i wasnt scratched) I even used pantene...lol

I took him to the vet, he was healthy apart from bendy legs...he lived with us for over 3 yrs. At that time, another cat started to cry up at our window and when the door opened it ran in...my hubby was adamant we are not having 3 cats. He chucked a bucket of water over her. She reappeared on the sill, soaking and shivering...he said...oh let the blooming thing in...hehehe

the first stray has died, my family cat has dissapeared..she was 16yrs old. and the soaking cat was named Clint and now lives happy with my daughter.....I get my two new furbabies on Monday and cant wait....

If your kitten is really young it might be best to try kitten milk, as she/he should really be still feeding from mother, and its great it uses the litter tray...looks like you have a new addition :lol:
