Sick mama dumped. Experience help
I wish I had a camera but then you guys might kill me for gross pics. So a friend found a matted bundle of mats in some mud and guess what...SHES PREGNANT!! On top of that, she looks to have really bad teeth. I have no idea what happened to her but she looks terrible.
So I'm hoping to adopt out her and her babies...hopefully she will deliver them and be ok. She is semi feral so I made an appointment with the vet's groomer who thinks "she will be a fun experience!" Only thing is...her teeth are so bad that it is getting hard for her to eat. My regular vet suggested wet food only and shes going in Thursday for her check up at the cat hospital. I haven't named her but call it project Phoenix (so I will probably just name her Phoenix) in hopes that she will rise from her ashes and become something beautiful in the end.
I'm worried and I know the vet will give me some help but...any ideas on how to keep her fed? I'm not sure they'd give her a tube or anything since she is quite frightened by strangers. No dental work till she pops.
