Get some milk, kitten replacer if possible and be ready to spend a very sleepless night, as he's going to need to be checked on every hour and probably fed then as well. Keep him warm and away from drafts. Good luck!

Unfortunetly, kittens this young have a hard time surviving the night when away from mamma.

No. Don't feed him regular milk. It's not good for cats.

You really need to pick up some kitten formula right away. I'm sure Walmart has some and they're open 24 hours. It really can't wait, if he even misses one feeding it could throw him off. Little kittens like that are so very fragile.

Please call up your vet in the morning as well and explain the situation. He or she can tell you exactly how much formula to feed and how else you should be careing for the kitten.

In the mean time, follow the directions on the container. You'll also need a plastic feeding syringe which you can get at the vet, but a small kitten bottle might do the trick for now (I'm not even sure if they have those at walmart...).

Do you have someone else with you that can take you? How long before you can get formula for him? Do you know how long it's been since his last meal? Where did you get him from? How did we start playing twenty questions?
