We just took in a thin kitten last night, I'm guessing 8-9 weeks based on teeth, eyes, and size (she is 868g or roughly 1.9 lb) that was freezing and starving. Long story short a mother cat and kittens were dumped at a shop out in the country and this one and the mother seem to be the only two that made it through the recent cold snap. Anyways, we named her Freya and what I am wondering is if just kitten food (currently giving kibble and wet food) will be enough or if there is something else I should be giving her. Last night she was pale and cold to the touch (to be fair she was out in -30C temps ) , she wanted to explore but was also kind of out of it, mostly just wanting to eat, drink, then sleep. She is warm, her toe beans have pinked up and she is acting like a normal kitten today but you can easily feel her ribs and spine when you touch or pick her up. To be clear she will be going to the vet and dewormed, just wondering any tips in the mean time.
