Found a feral kitten

Last night we went to my moms house to visit and have dinner. After dinner we were walking out to the car to leave and my stepdad said he thought he heard the sound of a kitten crying. We all got quiet and listened, then I heard it and followed the sound. It was pretty dark outside but I could see it behind a small bush, I reached down to get it and it scooted along to a rose bush on the other side. I went inside and got a flashlight, when I came back out it was quiet and I shined the flashlight all over her yard but couldn't find it. Then I heard it crying again and I followed the sound. It had crossed the street and was on the inner side of the wheel of the neighbors car. I reached under and scooped it up but it bit me on the finger and hissed, the poor little baby was so scared. Today we asked all the neighbors if anyone had a cat with a litter of kittens, three of the neighbors have cats but they're all spayed/neutered, nobody had seen any momma cat or babies around either. Sorry for the long story but I'm so glad this kitty found us. She (just calling her she for now I guess) hasn't shown interest in kmr but after the first taste of wet food from a spoon has went crazy for it and now is eating from a tiny bowl. She has also calmed down a lot, she hasn't hissed since the first time I picked her up, she purrs when I pet her, she is soooo tiny and adorable! We're keeping her in a separate room from our other cat until she gets vet check and tests

Good job Jamie! Thank you for having compassion on this little soul. Looking forward to hearing about her progress. Keep an eye on the bite. It can get infected fast.

Try looking up recipes for glop. The kitten looks old enough to be eating soft food. Keep giving it as much food as it will eat. Any more pictures of this adorable kitten?

PS the kitten isnt feral just abandoned.

She has beautiful markings. She may be lost. I am amazed at people who think they can let a young kitty out by themselves or sometimes they just sneak out...

Thanks everyone She's doing great, she's been eating a bunch, running around and purring nonstop. I looked up the glop recipes and I'm gonna whip some up and see if she likes it. And I'll definitely take some more pics when I get home this evening

A calico!! How cute Name suggestion-"Heidi"...little orphan girl in literature, rhymes with "bitey" and you found her hiding (kind of sounds like Heidi). So glad that you are able to help her. Any idea how old she is?
