I got a 6 week old kitten from a woman yesterday. I believe it’s too young to take away from the momma, they said she was eating hard food & everything... I feel like she should still be drinking milk. I have her on kitten food currently. Do I need to get a milk replacement for her? Or is she good on water?
ignore my face plz

Water is fine but if you feel the need to give milk replacer, then it's fine to include some. I had a 6 week old kitten once and only offered water. Not having milk replacer didn't affect his growth or anything.

Kittens should be ideally be kept with mom until they are 12 weeks old.

Kittens usually wean around 6 weeks, they're kept with their mothers longer to learn cat manners. She'll be fine on kitten food and water.
