    I worked at PetSmart when a lady came in with a 3 week old kitten. First speak to a vet to make sure they are healthy. You can always go to PetSmart and get kittens milk with a bottle. If you have any problems, you can always ask someone to show you the cats milk and bottles. Make sure you get the small nipples since he's a little guy/girl. If you get the cans, remember to put them in the fridge when you arent using them. they are good for about a day so make sure you cover them. you might also want to warm the milk up before you give it to them but dont make it too hot. Think of it like it's a baby. I also put my kitten in a big enough box for it to roam around but not be able to get out (then again mine was 3 weeks). put a stuffed animal in there from either a store or better if you have dogs. I put one of my dogs stuffed dog in there with him. They want to cuddle with something and since he is away from it's siblings, it'll be looking for a replacement. put lots of blankets in with it. If you need anything else, let me know!

    Beyond the kitten milk at Petsmart or another petshop, if you can't find the bottles use an eye dropper.

    If you can't get kitten milk, you can try to get him to eat small amounts of wet kitten food or dry kitten food soaked in warm milk.

    However at two weeks, he is probably not developed enough for this.

    Keep him warm and dry.  Kittens that young can't always maintain body heat and need to be some place warm.

    However, other issues. When kittens and puppies are very very small the mother licks them to stimulate them to poo.

    If your kitten does not have a bowel movement several hours after feeding, you may need to use a warm wash cloth and 'lick' it across the anus.

    The stimulation will trigger him to evaucate.

    Your kitten may be old enough not to need this help.  If he goes on his own, then you are fine.

    At two days old they cannot have wet kitten food, or really anything other than kitten formula. They will need to be fed about every 1-1 1/2 hours, and will need warmth and bowel stimulation. I wrote a hub on taking care of orphan rodents, and it's actually very close to the same process:
