Default Guess what Bamm found today... It squeaks and its furry

Took Bamm out on our usual walk. There are trails behind my place that go down by a lake.

We were out walking and he starts whining and sniffing in an area. He then pulled hard on the leash and was wagging his tail considerably. I went to investigate and saw a little dark furry bundle but since I didn't know what it was at first I poked it with a stick to get it to move.

As soon as I poked it I heard a mew and it moved its head up to look at me. It was a TINY little kitten and freezing since it is cold out right now. I think its male and he fits in the palm of my hand. Looks maybe 4-5 weeks old and VERY vocal. I got him some formula and he gobbled it up. Not sure how long it had been since he has eaten. He also looks a little wormy.

Cricket thinks she is mom and will not leave his side. Right now I have dubbed him Whiskey since he chugged the bottle of formula like an alcoholic needing a fix.

Hoping to get him into the vet on Monday to make sure he is in good health. He is a little stumbly when he walks. Not sure if that's normal at this age or not.

OMG he is adorable!
How does Bamm act around him? I'm glad Cricket is playing momma bear.
I hope you keep him!

Asweet!!! I think stumbly is spot on for this age.

Right now the idea if keeping him is more than likely a no. I do want to make sure I have him healthy before trying to find him a home though and I definitely won't pass him off to anyone yet while he is so little. Bamm really likes him. He is a sucker for cats though... Always has been. Honestly Bamm would be happy to live in a house FULL of cats if he had the opportunity lol.

The little guy is sleeping now. He seems to stay quiet as long as Cricket is lying near him but screams otherwise.

Thanks. I think I have my dads luck. Homeless animals always find their ways onto his path and this is the third kitten I've found in the past 5 years and the youngest one so far.

His stools are pretty watery. Is that normal as well while he isn't on solids yet? When is a good time to start transitioning him off of formula and onto canned/solids?

He just shot liquid stools all over me and started crying. Also his butthole looks a little irritated to me. What do I do until I can get him in to see a vet this upcoming week?

Oh god I sound like a first time mom

I wouldn't say it's normal, but probably from malnutrition. He should be able to eat solid/canned food at 6 weeks or so.
