    Good morning everyone! Thank you for responding, I really appreciate it. I'm so glad I found this website. I really don't know what to do yesterday.

    I think she's in pain. But she's more stronger than last night. She's sleeping now.

    I'll try to call PAWS again. Their office hours starts at 10am. And I'll send another email.

    I'll prepare her some water with egg yolks. Sorry late reply, my head started to hurt last night. But I kept on checking ang giving her water every hour.

    The wound on her belly is now closed. But I don't want to clean it now, I'm scared it might open again.

    I'll search about pain killers to kittens.

    Thank you all so much again.

    Happy to hear that she seems stronger now. You already cleaned the wound on her stomach, so if it looks closed, no swelling/inflammation then you're doing good to leave it alone. How are the neck wound and her ear looking?

    Hopefully you got some rest. Bless you, again, for helping the kitty. Praying that someone from PAWS can come get her and pay for her to go to the vet.

    Also...I could be wrong, but I don't think there are any over-the-counter pain medications that are safe for cats. She really does need to be checked by a vet.

    Yes, she can walk again. Last night she can't even lift her own head. Her right ear is not bleeding same as the wound on her neck. But I think the pain in coming from her ear/head.

    Yes, I tried to search some pain remedies for cats, but I can't find any. It's 8:22am here, I'll try to call PAWS at 10am. I really hope they know someone who can help her near here.

    Yes, let's hope PAWS can help. I worry that she may have some bleeding in her brain, particularly if her ear is still bleeding some. Only X-rays could tell for sure. It's a very good sign that she is able to walk though. :hugs:

    The only pain medicine that my vet will give to cats is meloxicam (Metacam), and only 1 drop for a full grown cat - it takes a prescription here to buy it. It can be rough on the kidneys and liver. Before the days of ibuprofen, the treatment for head injury was darkness and silence. Also, we were given sugar water - the electrolyte replacer recipe at www.kitten-rescue.com is similar. I would give her old newspapers nearby or even underneath her, so she can pee on them without having to walk to the litterbox. Have you tried making a gofundme account that takes PayPal?

    I tried to call PAWS again on their landline but I can't reach them. PAWS replied to my email saying I can bring the kitten in their office so they can treat her for free. But I can't. It's far from here and I promise, I don't have money even to pay for the bus.

    I'm panicking. I'm sorry. I want her to survive. I really do. But I don't know what to do now.

    She seems weak again, and doesn't even want water. It's making me sad.

    Yes, I'm giving her water with sugar since last night. I hope it works.
    I'm scared to give her any medicine, and I don't know where to buy them here or If I can afford it.

    I'll try to make an account, I hope it will work here in the Philippines.

    Gofundme doesn't work here in Philippines, I'll try gogetfunding.com.

    I'm so sorry everyone if I can't bring her to a vet.

    How long is the bus journey to PAWS. Do you think the kitten can take it.

    If so, it might be worth ringing the bus company and speaking to someone in charge, explain everything and ask if they would waver the fare on this occasion due to the circumstances. Failing that, get back in touch with PAWS and ask for help to get there.

    Is there no one you could adk to drive you there?

    Hello! It will take more than 3hours to get her to PAWS from here. I don't know. She's hurting even the just a slight move.

    I don't have any contact number of any bus companies. And I think they will just laugh at me.

    Btw, the kitten is sleeping now.

    PAWS offering free treatment is good progress. Now you must find a way to get the kitten there.

    Here are some ideas:

    Do any of your neighbors have a car? Or are any of them able/willing to take the kitten by bus?

    Find out how much a bus ticket is and ask a friend or neighbor to loan you some money that you could pay back over several weeks or months.

    Reply to PAWS and ask if they have a volunteer close to you who can come pick up the kitten and take it back to their clinic.

    Good ideas above. It doesn't sound as if the listen could cope with a 3 hour journey but borrowing money for painkillers or contacting PAWS and tell them it is not possible for the kitten to be taken to them but could they pay for painkillers that you could pick up at a nearby vet or chemist.
    Is the kitten still taking water?.
    You are going a great job.

    Perhaps PAWS knows a veterinarian who would volunteer to make a house call?
