Because it seems like lots of people are having a rough time and I've actually got a funny cat story for once...

So, this really nice lady brings in this 1 pound stray kitten, probably ~5 weeks old.  He's teeny tiny and has an upper respiratory infection, which is common in strays, but doing pretty well otherwise.  He has tiny sharp monster kitten teeth, so he should be able to eat either soft food or kibble with water in it, which we tell her.

She comes back in a few hours later because she attempted to bottle feed him and he ripped the end off the nipple and swallowed part of it.  We make him vomit to get the rubber out so it doesn't get stuck/cause problems.  He vomits up the milk, rubber... and about a dozen small feathers.

Cats are teeny tiny murder machines, no matter how young they are, and we humans seem to love them that way.

She believed us after that about him being able to eat solid food, and the kitten is currently doing just fine.
