We didn't know, how old the babies were and what we could feed them. We decided to just give them milk, at first. I had a couple of plastic syringes, and I used that to feed the kitties. One by one, Taka handed them to me and I squeezed milk into their mouths. When we tried to just put a saucer of milk in front of them, they would try to suck it, making a loud "!" noise, and get wet all over by wading in the dish.
