As witnessed by a cat rescuer from Bosnia (ex Jugoslavia).
In any case, the best alternative milk-recipes are based on goat-milk.
Another reserve recipe is, as I remember:
gruel, preferably on low-lactose milk, preferably full-fat, not fatreduced.
some corn(=maize-gruel) may be added
some dextrose sugar,
I know a forumist used this for kittens in her ward with good results. She didnt had KMR nor Royal Canins kitten milk.
If it is waiting till the shops opens, you can probably give them lukewarm water. Should do OK.
If you want to elaborate this reserve, so add also dextrose sugar + a little salt.
1 litre water
1-2 soup-spoons of dextrose sugar (or honey)
1 tea-spoon of kitchen salt
Cook it up, let it cool till lukewarm.
It is same as you use if cats or humans are dehydraded.
