You know, from every angle, a vet visit is a good idea. In the wild cats eat all kinds of garbage. He could have parasites. And if he's old enough, he'll need to be vaccinated. Yes, it will cost you a few bucks, but at least you'll know he's in good shape and ready to enjoy his new life with you. Then you can start saving up to have him neutered! Please.
Thanks for taking him in, he surely would have died out there.
Does the little scrap have a name?

Depending on the age of the kitten, it may not be able to go to the bathroom on it's own. It may need stimulation. Definitely take the little one to the vet so they can get the BM's going and show you how to assist in that department for a time.
