Feeding 3 kittens while I wait for the shelter

Thread starter #1

My wife found 3 tiny little kittens last night begging by the back fence.

I have pretty good reason to believe momma is dead, saw a fresh carcass on the street my way out yesterday that matches their patterns.

What's the best thing to feed them while we wait for the shelter?

I'm certain they still need mommas milk, but that sadly is not going to happen.

Thank you.

Purina kitten chow softened with milk.
Yep, that worked for the kitten we found. We heated it up to body temperature. He lapped it right up.
If they're really tiny, it's good to give them a light rub down after they eat. Supposedly it stimulates their bowels like their mother giving them a bath.
