    Found a stray on the side of the road.  Have done this many times, but this one is REALLY bad...

    off.  I have her isolated from the rest of my animals and after 3 days she can actually stand up.  Eating well, but her eyes look cloudy and her ?tear ducts? cover up about 1/3 of her eye.  Any ideas what I can do for her until I get her to the vet this week?  I have found her a home... sending her by a friend from Tennessee to Florida to my sister smile

    Sounds like you're doing fine. It also sounds like it's her third eyelid covering up a third of her eye. They come from the inside corner, and it happens when they are very ill.  The best you can do before you get her to the vet is keep her isolated, fed, and well watered! Sounds like you have a huge heart for critters  smile

    I usually take in dogs... this is only the 2nd cat.  The 1st one is my new house cat with pins in his hip and leg.  Found him in the barn after a huge storm.

    Can I give this cat milk replacer?  I don't know how old she is... I am thinking young, but not baby.  Has adult teeth, but they are clean... no buildup. 

    She is putting on a round belly, but is still all bones.  Took a stool to work (my major was Microbiology/Vet Medicine) and she doesn't have any worms that I could find.  One ear is hot and swollen... working on that.  The cloudiness in her eyes is clear... still has the 3rd eyelid covering part of her eye.

    Any ideas until she has her vet appointment on Friday?
