New rescue. arrived about 1 1/2 hour ago

Hi guys
I'm still visiting Mexico and I get no rest. My parents found a kitten at the market
He's alert and responsive, eyes clear (just with sleep and some dirt) and ate but he's dirty, exhausted and I can see he's in some pain, not enough not to eat but enough to cause him a constant spasm, except when he sleeps. Right now he's deeply asleep and at ease. It's past 1 pm and I'll be taking him to the vet at 4.
I've been told he was hit by a bicycle earlier, his condition is not critical at the moment and there are no visible injuries however I am concerned and have him warm in a big carrier resting behind closed doors and keping an eye on him until we go to the vet.
Please send all your good thoughts this way so we can pull him through this. My first concern is his health and once that's clear we'll find him a home.

God I'm so worried. I love them always at first sight.

Aww, what a big heart you have! Thank you for looking out for the little guy, and my fingers will be crossed that there's nothing serious going on with him.

Koteburo, bless you and your parents for caring for this little soul. I'm sure with your love he'll pull through fine and then wind up in a furever home.

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

Thank you so much.
We're back from the vet. He didn't find anything severe except he has a lot of worms and some constipation (yes, again) the shaking or spasm could be due to the constipation. He told me to wait with the deworming medicine and that might help him go poop if not he'll be on lactulose. The little guy is so dirty he needs a bath, but not today, too soon, too much stress.
The kitten's about 3 or 3 and a half months.
He just ate again. I'm giving him small meals to prevent any reaction I don't know when was the last time he ate so better safe than sorry.
I'll keep focusing on the positive and we'll get through this, the cow and me and then his furever home.
I'll keep you posted.
