Customer Question

my daughter, who lives in PA, has an 8 week-old kitten who is with a feral colony but who is friendly. The kitten has a red swollen bottom and is not eating and can't defecate. I don't think it is drinking either. I live in VA.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the kitten's name?
Customer: She told me his name is***** wants to take him to the vet, but they don't have credit cards, and she doesn't know if they have enough in the budget to take him to the vet especially if they have to get all the shots for it.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Luigi?
Customer: There is nothing else that my daughter told me about. Thank you for any thoughts you could give about this.

Bless your daughter for taking care of ferals!

Does Luigi let her pick him up and handle him?

What did he eat last?
