Keep a kitten in a cardboard box or plastic bin. If you have one, put a lid on the box and place it in a dark place out of direct sunlight. Place some hay inside to keep them from getting too cold. Put more hay on top at night for insulation. A good rule of thumb is to keep the temperature between 65-70 degrees during the day and 68-70 degrees at night, with temperatures dropping around 10 degrees below for every 10 inches north of your house (i.e., 60 degrees Fahrenheit).
What do kittens eat?
Kittens need plenty of high energy food that’s close in value to their body weight: formula milk replacement which they can drink through a syringe; canned kitten chow/canned cat food; hard boiled eggs will work as well if mixed with water; yogurt is also an excellent source of calcium when mixed with water before feeding time or yogurt raisins sprinkled on top! You may want to add small quantities once per hour until they are about 5-6 weeks old, then add small amounts twice per day so they don’t get sick from overeating solid foods too quickly (overfeeding can also cause diarrhea.) We recommend switching over gradually by mixing wet, semi-solid food into full solids such as mashed up egg yolks and tuna fish (from leftovers), scrambled eggs and chicken broth (from cooked bones), etc., until your kitten is ready for regular solid kibble twice each day
