First of all, thank you to all who supported me with advice in the diary.  Not every bit was germane to my situation, but the support was very comforting.

Quick back-story:  Kidlet noticed a feral kitten on her college campus.  The kitten was successfully trapped Friday night.  I woke up early Saturday with a feral kitten and freaked out a bit.

Update:  We took the kitten to the Vet yesterday.  Julius WeeBeastie is a 4.5 pound male, about 5 to 6 months old based on his teeth.  He is free of feline leukemia and FIV (those may be the same thing - he is free of two scary diseases for cats).  He has a cut, so he is on antibiotics, which he seems to be tolerating (we had a cat who was allergic to amoxicillin, which is rare).  He has been vaccinated and treated for fleas.  He eats a lot!  He uses his litter box and buries his poop!  The vet suggested letting him settle in for a few weeks, then he can be neutered and micro-chipped.

Best of all:  He has started purring!!!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
