I recommend getting a specific formula at the pet store called KMR (kitten milk replacer). You can use this to bottle feed her, offer every 4 hours.
At 4 weeks of age, we can actually begin to introduce solid foods. Get some kitten food and make a mush with the KMR. Put it on a low flat dish - she will probably walk through it and make a mess at first, but she will figure it out!
She will be ready to go to a new home (if you decide not to keep her) in about 1 month.
Please let me know if you have further questions. I am happy to continue until I provide the service that you seek.
