Kittens - URGENT/MTL

*Crosspost*
A man in Ile Perrot found a deal mother cat under his shed with 3 little babies (a couple of days old). He has brought the babies into his house but cannot feed/keep them. Please post an urgent plea for someone who has a nursing mother to take this little ones in. They won't last 24 hours with nursing.

There are two kittens. I spoke with the guy who has them, he's fed them twice today. I am working on a nursing mom, if not then I assume tube feeding is the best route until a mom can be found? Rehydration with IV fluids as well?

Thanks BMD. Anything you can do to save these little ones will be great. My only other volunteers who does kittens if full right now and has no nursing/expectant mothers.

Update

Thanks to the posting on this board and another board, I had 2 people offer to help.

The kittens have now been picked up and are safe in a foster home with a nursing mother.

I just heard that the little gray kitten didn't make it. He was much smaller than his sibling (probably the runt of the litter). Fingers crossed for the remaining baby

The remaining baby has taken well to the surrogate mother and hopefully he will be fine (he was much bigger than his sibling).
