My husband brought home a wild kitten.

My DH came home with a wild kitten. He was walking out of work and he heard it meowing in the bushes. He said he picked it up and it was mean at first, but now it likes him. I don't want to touch it. Does anyone know about wild cats? Should he have left it alone? What do you do with it? Ugh.....my husband!!!!!

I would lock it in the garage until I could get it checked out at the vet.

DH made it a bed in the garage...he put milk, food, and water down. I don't even know if it's old enough to eat solid food. It is really tiny.

 It needs to be checked for worms and other kitty problems. Worms are the worst though becuase they come out in their poop. You also need to know how old it is before you just give it wormer.

you mean a regular feral cat?  lol just let it get used to you guys.  Take it to the vet as soon as you guys can to make sure it doesn't have worms or any other disease...

How old is it? If it is young enough, it'll be tame within a few days to a week. I had 6 feral kittens dropped on my lap about 3 weeks ago. They hissed, growled, bit, and scratched. Within 2 days, you'd have never guessed they were feral. Also, if you plan on keeping it, take it to the vet for shots and deworming.

Also, post pics if you can. lol

you don't have to keep it outside or in the garage. if it's eyes and ears are clear, bring it in. give it water and if you have dry food, mix with a little warm water or give wet food. NO MILK! it might be too late, but cows milk makes kittens throw up most of the time, so no milk. take it to the vet when you can, it's most likely just been left by mom is all.
