Instead of worms, the poor little guy actually has a huge abscess on his stomach, which you couldn't tell under his fur
. Apparently, it looked like he was attacked by another animal at some point, but you couldn't see the wounds under his fur. We actually ended up having to go to the emergency vet with him, since the regular vet didn't have enough resources on the weekends. The regular vet thought he might need surgery, but he ended up only getting antibiotics, pain meds, and an ultrasound from the emergency vet for now. I hope he'll be okay, and that the emergency vet didn't just want to skimp on the vet care because of the owner (we got her on the phone for all the vets). I'm just glad he is okay for now. At that point, I was so afraid we weren't even going to end up coming home with a kitten.
