Aaaw geez! Kitten at my door... The most expensive cat EVER

Just at my daughters bed time, I hear a cat crying. At first I thought it was one of mine stuck out in the garage or in a cabinet or something. Its happened before. NO, no, its a little grey kitten crying its head off outside my kitchen door. Naturally I pick it up and as its being so very thin I bring it in. BIG mistake. My older male cat proceeds to FREAK out and starts attacking ME!! He actually drew blood on my ankle. I got the kitten into my garage with some food, water, blanket and a cat box. I can NOT keep this little guy. I went and put up a sign at the mailbox and I will walk around tomorrow to see if I can find his home, or Any home really. And I am totally scared of my sweet sweet Rufus (My big male cat) He was Screaming at me after the kitten was gone from the house even.
BAH! what a mess!!

Thank goodness you gave the poor little thing some food and water. Hope you find his home or another home for him soon!

Find a local foster group in your area.
Someone will take the kitten in, socialize it, get it healthy and take it to adoption places and find it a great home. Since it is not kitten season, the kitty will get adopted quickly. I suggest going that route because people will have to pay a high fee to adopt the kitten which means they most likely really want it (as opposed to just taking a free kitten because its free)

Your local animal hospital will be able to assist you on finding it a home as well.

I called feline friends but naturally I can't get a hold of anyone. I was going to walk around the neighborhood to see if one of my neighbors will take him in, but he really needs to see a vet. He is sooo thin and I think he has a cold in his eyes. Rufus has somewhat forgiven me for the time being, but if I don't find a place for the kitten by tonight, I am moving him from my garage to the office. I wish I could keep him

There are ways to try and acclimate the kitten to the rest of the house and your cat:

Call up a petco or petsmart and ask if they have an organization that comes in to adopt animals and you might get several different foster groups and their phone numbers.
