Care of orphaned kittens.

Species: Cat
Breed: mixed
Age: Less than 3 mon
I have a ferral outside cat who just had kittens and was attacked...most of thr babies died except 2. We bought the kitten formula and we are rubbing their bellies to stimulate their bowels, My son and I have kept them alive for 3 days and want to keep them that way! Is there anything else we need to do or know about taking care of newborns?

I hope everything goes well with them!
