I hope this is the right place. . .

Sorry I haven't been very active.
Well I think I found another stray.
He let me pet him. I'm worried about it. His tongue sticks out all the time, his eyes are really nasty and the cat looks really rough. Unfortunately my mom can't take me to the vet. If I could drive I would take him myself. I was just wondering if there is anything I could do in the meantime until I can figure out an arrangement to get him to the vet or someone that could help him. I'll try to get some pictures up tonight. Thanks in advance.

Maybe a warm washcloth to wipe gunk (gently!) off his face, food and a warm/safe place to sleep until he can get to a vet?

My kitten had an inflamed eye with discharge coming out 'cause of his cold. This is what I did until I could get him to the vet.

Mixed a quarter of a teaspoon of sea salt into one cup of distilled or filtered water. Stirred and then dip a cloth or cotton ball into the mixture and clean his eye area gently with it.

Hope the kitty feels better!

Not sure if you should use salt as that might sting. But wipe his eyes with a warm clothe. Might be nice to gently wipe his whole body down with a warm clothe. Do you have somewhere he can stay (garage?) Mauybe try to make a house (like a dog house) and put down lots of blankets. Give him some food and water.

Thanks everyone.
I haven't seen him all day but yesterday I had a large carrier and put a couple towels inside. I also fed him yesterday also. Thanks for the advice everyone.
