I think the worms are bad enough that we will just hit the vet in the morning.
Probably not a bad idea, but take note of the active ingredient in the dewormers you have on hand and the mgs/mL on each and make sure your vet knows what you have available. Fenbendazole and pyrantal are the most common broad spectrum for cats/dogs, and I'm betting you at least one bottle of safeguard/panacur laying around somewhere. Granted most vets aren't going to charge much for broad spectrum wormers (especially for an itty bitty little kitty!), you'll probably end up paying more for the fecal. Most likely they're going to want you to do several doses though, so you might end up saving a few bucks. If she has tapes you'll probably be out of luck, depending on what type they are. If you have Albon or sulfa on hand you might want to take note of that too.
You can use plain Ivomec injectible for the ear mites- you don't want to put more than a drop per ear, and you want to be VERY precise with the dosage. Cats can be pretty sensitive to ivermectin, and honestly I probably wouldn't recommend it for a kitten this age/weight. You'll want to make sure you clean all of the gunk out of the ears before you apply any medication (kitty is going to REALLY love you before this is all over!). You might ask if she's big enough for Revolution- it's a topical product similar to Frontline, but it also treats ear mites, heartworms, and some intestinal parasites- you could kill all your birds with one stone, and would probably be a lot easier on you both. It's a fairly expensive product but I love it for our cats and dogs.
Good luck! (Oh, and if Kitten needs company we've got at least a dozen barn kittens I'd be more than willing to send your way. We'll even pay for the shipping!
