firstly make sure you do not give the kitten normal cows milk. only give the special cat and kitten milk you can buy.
It sounds like you will have to take over the care of this kitten for now. You could keep it warm and feed it with a small spoon warm milk every two hours. All through the night I’m afraid as it sounds like this little one needs some serious tlc. Also take him to the vets to get him checked over, he may need some extra medical help to get him through this tough time.
lets hope the little guy can build his strength up.
