New City

I've always rescued cats and dogs, kept some, found home for others, but then we relocated, and this new town doesn't seem to have one decent vet. It's a different environment, different weather (tropical) so pets here catch diseases that I'm not at all familiar with.
3 weeks ago, a tiny kitten came up to our door. She was frail and skinny and didn't look well. Her eyes were discharging and she had a big scab-like thing on her chest and her tail was just a small stub that also looked broken. I took her to the vet who said the kitten is a 3 months old male, and that the scab was just a healing wound and the tail must have been injured during a fight.
I did some research and found out that there is a breed of cat in the region (Philippines) that has no tail, and its descendants sometimes have tails like this one. It also turned out to be female, which I pointed out to the vet who was surprised.
I suspect I will be posting here a lot for questions, because of the 2 vets I saw, neither seemed remotely competent, and the kitten is not doing too well
