Tiny wounded kitten rescued!

I'm sure it seemed like a good idea, she wanted a kitten, and here was a cute one for sale on kijiji for $75, so she took it home, thought it was 9 weeks old, went to the store, bought food, a brush, shampoo, kitty earwipes, and then discovered it had wounds on its legs and was having trouble walking.

Having no money to take the kitten to a vet, she posted the kitten on kijiji, saying she needed vet attention.  So what did I do when I saw this, you know the answer, I got in the car (and with Susan as my bodyguard) drove to Jane and Finch to get the kitten.  The girl came out with this darling baby in a little bed.  An hour's drive and $50 later I had myself a kitten but one who first of all was not 9 weeks all, and secondly desperately needed medical attention.
We took her immediately to our vet and she only weighed 500 grams, I could feel all her ribs and she has two infected wounds on the joints of the inside of both her back legs.  I wish I knew how this happened or maybe I don't want to know.  At least she is safe and is on pain meds and antibiotics, and one of the vet techs took her home for the night to monitor her.
