Saved a kitten

Hello all
Here is my little story( I should also add we saved our dog from a crazy lady who was going to drown them. We got her when she was only 2 weeks old & was less tan 2 lbs also). We live in an appt complex in Panama City, Panama. Almost everynight for the past month or so. I have seen this kitten. But I was walking my dog so it would never come close to me.
Well last Monday my wife was taking our son down to catch the school bus. She came backup & was talking about this little kitten that was just meowing & looked sickly so this girl gave it some mashed potatoes from her lunchbox.
Pass to 11:30...
We go downstairs to get Liam & low and behold. The kitten is still there.....just meowing & barely able to sit up. So I crouch down to look him over & look up a my wife & ask her what she wants to do. SO I took him upstairs. Gave him some milk & dogfood. Let him sleep for 2 hours(meanwhile all the time Liam was extatic). When he woke up we took him to the vet. The vet said he was about 3 months old, but only weighed 1.5 lbs & has alot of parasites(which I pretty much already knew). So we got all the nessessary shots & medications. They gave him a bath, cleaned his ears(which were coated in black soot) & filed his nails. Later that night he pooped out a 6 inch tape worm & the next day a 2 inch tape worm. Fast foreward one week. He is now about 3 lbs, FULL of energy & just crazy curious...ofcourse this is when he is not sleeping 20 out of 24 hours of the day.
I still have to get him a good litter box, as I am using a paint tray. I have to find a good place to get litter also. A 10lb bag of generic litter here is $13. He goes through about one bag a week..$52/month in litter..YIKES!!!!
This coming month I am going to be building a cat "mansion" on our balcony/ It is going to be about 9ft wide x 7ft high.

Anyway, that is about all I can think of now. But here are some pics & a vid. In order from when I first brought him upstairs( our dog took to him immediately) to last night when I found him crashed out in our bed....

Oh, in the vid..NO he is not pooping. Just starting doing typical kitten things.

Re: Saved a kitten

WooHoo!! This is a great story! Thanks for saving the little fella! He's a little nut isn't he! Looks like he's already paying you back with lots of entertainment! Glad the dog likes him too. Says good things about the dog!!
