Get kitten formula and your going to have to hand-rear him.

My advice is to get in touch with a rat breeder and ask for information on when to intervene with a baby, how to hand rear, etc. I've never hand-reared a baby but my understanding is that it is very specialised, and an experienced rat breeder (or maybe a rat rescue place) would probably have specific information to help. All the best.:)
