So about an hour ago Molly and I were going to walk to the river when Molly started sniffing around at the side of the highway.
I take a look and find a small kitten soaking wet and all in a ball. So he/she is in a box wrapped in a sweatshirt beside the computer
as I type. He (I'll call him for now) is all sleeping and breathing but I have no idea if he will make it.
Google is some help and we have no vet around so if anyone has some obvious tips fire away!

Ahh. Hope he's ok.
It is a he....and in the last couple of hours he has improved big time. I got him some weird milk and mushed up some food. He is dry and warm and has a name now.....Beep

Got your Bee Gees reference but am trying to figure out mut's. I'm sure he'll let us know.
btw that was a good one.
....Beep died this morning. He was eating and drinking last evening but then stopped. He started crashing through the night and faded away about half an hour ago.
I'm so bummed as he seemed to rebound when I got him all warmed up and dry. Anyway, it seems he was likely too young to make it without mom. I am really happy I found him
and he didn't die cold, wet and alone....and he got a name!
Mookiethedog, I’m sorry about Beep but you’re right.

Sorry Mook—be assured you did your best .

So sorry Mookie. But you gave him a good few days.

Better warm and dry.
that's not the happy end we ordered

poor Beep - I'm so glad he got some love in his short life
We had an incident once with a feral kitten. I never the knew the cat but it was suffering and we took him to the vet to have him looked at finally euthanized. The whole episode made me very sad. Life is precious.
thank you for taking care of him while you could.

Sorry to hear about Beep but wanted to echo what others have said. It was great of you to try and save him and it's good to know he died somewhere warm.
