My landlord gave me a key to our super creepy basement underneath our building, a building on our small town Main Street that's over 150 years old. He had to go out of town, and wanted me to refill the water and food he left for a kitten he spotted. This basement is OLD, the wooden floor was crumbled to dust and the old bricks were disintegrating. Tons of cobwebs and ancient plumbing and coal remnants. After several days, I finally found the kitten. She's so little! Filthy, feral, and never having been in sunlight...she has a bad case of fleas, a swollen belly (worms?) and the most gorgeous blue eyes. She has teeth (boy howdy, does she, my fingers look like I was attacked by a mob of miniature vampires). I bathed her because, omg...poor baby was matted with dirt and flea shit. |
I know she's a girl, but have no idea how old she is. I can't get her to the vet until next week. I have her wrapped up in a tee shirt and snuggled to my chest, and she's no longer shaking. I need help guessing her age and some advice. And cheap, CHEAP options until the 1st.

How old is she and what are some reliable websites to advise on feral kitten care? Especially flea treatments.
