Found 3 kittens on the side of my grandparents' house. The mother is feral, and we brought them home and are fostering them until they're old enough to be put up for adoption. This is one of the grey ones and it's eyes are still closed. Using kitten formula. Observe the milk mustache.

FIX YOUR CAT! Don't let it have kittens because you think it's "cute"; because of people like you, shelters are overflowed with cats, 70% of which are killed!!! There is a major overpopulation problem, so to cut down on their euthanization deaths, do the currently living cats a favor and adopt one of them instead of bringing more into the world so other unwanted ones can be killed! Cats that are also let outdoors without being fixed breed like crazy and before you know it, there's a cat colony! Feral cats, like the babies I rescued from, die from all kinds of things; people trapping and giving them to a "shelter" or "rescue" which kills them, killed by cars (including inside cars where they will go to keep warm), disease, drinking from polluted or poisonous sources, fights with other cats, and FLEAS which make them anemic.
The BEST THING TO DO if you see a wild cat in your neighborhood is:
first check to see if it's ear is tipped or there is any other sign it has already been fixed,
try to figure out if it has kittens (you don't want to take the mother leaving the babies),
if it doesn't, trap it, get it fixed, and RELEASE IT. Vitally important, there are several websites explaining in detail how Trap Spay Neuter Release (TSNR) is most effective in cutting down cat population. DON'T fix it and bring it somewhere else; it could die.
If it does have kittens, find the kittens, trap them all, get them to a rescue group, and then TSNR the mother. Don't wait when trapping kittens; they will grow fast and will become harder to tame as time goes on.
