Kitten Update

OK, I went to the vet this morning, and they gave me some kitten-formula, with a set of instructions that were, actually, in places word-for-word what I'd found on the internet. Which is kind of reassuring. I've got an appointment to take him in for a look-over on Wednesday.

He (or she, I can't really tell) seems to be doing fine. He drank some of the formula -- not much, but then he's just a tiny thing -- and I even managed to get him to poop afterwards. It disturbs me how triumphant that made me feel. Whoo-hoo! I got a kitten to poop! Go, me! Also, the umbilical appears to have mostly fallen off, or at least the white cord-y part did. There's still a stump. I think this is probably normal and fine.

I'll keep you updated, but I think at this point his life is mainly going to consist of sleep-eat-poop-sleep, so it probably won't be terribly interesting.
