What a great thing you are doing, taking her in and giving her a decent life.
I am no expert, but even my adult cats have "good" days and bad...sometimes my big boy never leaves the bed and other times, we cannot get him in the house....just like people. Do keep us updated on how the little one is doing!

I just went through this exact thing with rebel. He wouldn't eat a thing!!! and he always beats me to the kitchen, even if he is sound asleep. he wouldn't eat OR drink. He had an upper respitory infection! After a few doses of antibiotics he is back to new.

Maybe you could take these interludes where all is well, and before the next round of vaccinations, to choose a vet that seems really in sync with your needs, and who you trust. With a baby so young, you will be going to the vet for things for awhile yet... and if you need help in the future, it is always good to have confidence in someone you have already picked out. I picked up on the fact that you might not trust the first vet, who seemed to reflexively/ unthinkingly inject a very young kitten (who could have been anemic from fleas and have low blood sugar from hunger)... just a thought...

Oh, that just made me wonder... do you have food out for the kitten all the time? They can get sort of sick-acting when their blood sugar drops... maybe the kitten's system is getting out of whack due to longer-term hunger and periodic meals. I think that idea is a long shot... but worth mentioning.

Who leaves such a tiny thing alone outside? You're wonderful for taking her in, and it's so nice to see a happy ending to her story
