Special needs kitten on craigslist

This is killing me. I do not have money to take this kitten to the vet, but those who do work with rescues, do you think a rescue would pay for his care, at least to find out what is wrong with him, if I offer to foster him?

Poor baby. Why not try calling? I know cats in the cradle in Alpharetta and Furkids are pretty good about taking animals in. Both do special needs work. Let us know if you find something out?

Awesome, Furkids is supposed to be the largest no kill in the state, so hopefully if they cant take the poor baby they know someone who can. Thats actually where I adopted my newest baby, Kieran.

Someone from Furkids has already responded to me and has contacted the current owner about taking him. She said she also coordinates the foster homes and she will let me know if the owner turns him over to the rescue.

I have heard back from a second rescue that said if I can get them from the current owner and foster them, they will pay for a vet/specialist for both and list them on their site. Oh, and yeah, them...there is a healthy littermate, they would like me to try to get both. I emailed the guy, I just hope he will let one of the rescues help.

I have a feeling I should have thought this through a more, if I end up with two kittens tomorrow I may be freaking a little bit...we will see.

Here is the link with both kittens:

The ad has been removed from craigslist, so I don't know what happened. I tried to call the guy this morning and left a message. I hope one of the rescues got him, or possibly an individual with means to help him. I know the rescue I have been talking with definitely did not get him, but I have agreed to foster another cat for them since they just pulled 39 cats from a shelter today.
