A. For injuries like this the main concern is was there anything broken in the limbs and if there were any injuries to the vital organs. If you are seeing any limping, difficulty breathing, inability to eat, or obvious injuries to the skin, then seek veterinary attention to address these. Howeve, there is a chance kitten could come out of this unscathed.

A. Purring can be a good sign, but is also a way of telling the handler " Don';t hurt me, I am harmless and helpless". Lethargy is not a good sign, your kitten may be in pain and have some internal injury. She needs to eat and drink. Please take her to a veterinarian tomorrow to make sure she has no serious injuries.
