Sick Kitty

My wife found this little kitten at the farm of an acquaintance. It was obviously sick and malnourished, so she took it upon herself to bring it home and nurse it back to health. We had it at the vet earlier today. She still has a lot to overcome. She is underweight and dehydrated. She has an eye infection (hence the goopy eyes). She has an upper respiratory infection. She is infested with worms. What she has going for her is that she has personality and spunk. We've treated her for the parasites and we've got antibiotics to treat her infections. I've got special food to feed her for the time being. The vet thinks she'll soon be on the road to recovery.

 

By the way, we've named her Flurry.
