Hi, I am new to this forum and very much in need of advice!! I found a female cat abandoned in a metal cage (in the full sun) Saturday night. The pet shop where she was left reported that she had been left in this cage for several days before I came along! “Oreo” (my son named her) is skeletal; she is literally a bag of bones!! I can feel every bone in her spine, hips, shoulders and chest with nothing on them. She is also pregnant and today I felt a kitten move, not kick, but the entire “sack” moved away. I felt at least two, maybe three sacks, although I am not able to make out kittens yet, just sacks! Oreo is VERY tired all the time (as would be expected), she just eats, drinks uses the litter box and sleeps. I have gotten her dry kitten food and am providing her all she can eat food and water. This is the sweetest cat I have ever met, she is so loving and genuinely seems to understand that we saved her life; she acts grateful! I have noticed fleas and ear mites on her and am not sure about internal parasites? I will be taking her to the vet in the morning (Monday), but am sooooo worried about her!!!!! Is there anything more I can do tonight? Should I be feeding her wet cat food? I have noted that she has VERY bad gas and when she does number 2 it is REALLY smelly; I have to change it right away and vent the entire house!!!! I am not kidding when I say it is like napalm went off, VERY bad smell!!! The stool is very loose, but not watery as of yet. I have not noted any worms! Any help that can be provided is greatly appreciated!!!
