orphaned kittens...help

so...4 the past 4 days or so...ive been hearing baby kittens...which really isnt that unusual 4 my house because the cats like 2 come in and chill in the side of the house...but this was like persistent meowing 4 several days...usually if a momma cat brings her babies inside...shell come back and get em, take em away 4 a while and bring em back...but it seemed like the momma was never coming back cause it was just constant crying...i kept trying 2 look 2 see if i could find where it was...i mean...i had a general idea but couldnt locate the exact location...

...so 2day...my friend came over and heard the crying cat...after i told her that it had been going on 4 a few days...and she set out 2 find the source ...well...after a while...she found them in a hole in my floor (my house is terribly old and hasnt always the best of care)...when i looked down there...i discovered that there were at least 3 of em...well i went off and got a box and a towel 4 the lil fellas...came back...turns out there were 4 of em

these kittens dont even have their eyes open yet and they still have the umbilical cords ...and there hasnt been any sign that the mom ever came back...the biggest one looks like its getting close 2 opening its eyes...but theres 1 that looks kinda runt-ish...and it was the 1 that was calling out...thats the 1 that im worried about the most

i cant say that ive raised kittens b4...so i was wondering if any1 had any advice...i mean...i found some general info on the web...but i was wondering what kind of helpful hints u guys could provide...also, we havent decided if were gonna keep em and try and raise em or take em down 2 the humane society...i just wanna do whats best 4 these poor little guys...

hmmm I think you should have a vet examine them.

agree - you don't know what the mother died of (if she did) and whether she has passed anything on to the kittens. It would be the wisest thing to take them to a vet.

The only thing about going to the vet, is that it cost money....money that I dont have at the moment. Which is why the humane society came 2 mind. Plus, by the time we got the kittens got it was 2 late, so I just bought some formula and so far it's been alright... hopefully this weekend I'll be able 2 go to the humane society and get them checked out.
