Four weeks is very young, I hope your vet gave you some advice about care and feeding, and of course the members here are very wise and experienced. Welcome to the forum!

Hi and welcome to the Forum. There are lots of people here who have raised kittens from a very young age, so I'm sure you'll find lots of help. We'd love to see pictures of Olliver!

Ollie, hello!

The youngest I ever had was 6 weeks. She was eating by that time so for me, I didnt have do worry about that. But one thing I did notice, because she still had very much "kitten fur" is her need to make sure she was warm.

Talk the vet about things like keeping him warm, perhaps helping in keeping him clean (like gentle rub downs with a warm towel or something, but make sure it doesnt leave him wet because then he could get chilled)

If he really is that young, there are some "moma cat" things you may have to do for a few weeks until he is a bit older. Again, talk to the vet.
