So, here's the gist of it. My friend, while driving home from work, found a box containing a kitten on the side of the highway. Being a cat lover himself, he took it home so that it wouldn't die. Unfortunately, he lives in a house with three dogs and a cat who isn't very friendly with other cats, so he can't keep it long term. Since I've been looking for a cat, I agreed to adopt it from him so that it wouldn't end up in the SPCA.
Now, the problem is that this is very obviously an extremely young kitten, probably still too young to really be separated from its mother. This is going to require special treatment for the first little while, I know. Is there anything in particular I should be aware of? I've had kittens and cats before (grew up with a total of about six of them at various times) so I know how to deal with older kittens and full-grown cats, but never anything this young.
Just want to make sure I'm fully prepared for keeping the kitten healthy and growing properly.
