You don't state the Age of the kitty or if the kitty will have his Mother with him
To help him grow up...?

Well,Our little,golden-striped guy "Tabby Allan" Is 13 weeks,4 and 1/2 days.
He has a lambswool-lined,litter-boxed sized,washable Kitty Bed.At that age,they Leap all round everything, so he can hold his Own on top of his "Big Dad's" bed.
We lay extra clean Towels inside his bed when it is too cold.At that age,you will
Still be needing to "Wet" his baby-kibble with a small amount of canned cat food.Dry food might choke the little fellow.Twice a day,we give Tabby (6 tea-
spoons) total of Milk-replacer in a very Low bowl.We use "Hartz" precision Nu-
Trition Milk Replacer.Also, GNC Brand powdered Milk Weaning Formula (from
Petsmart) is what he grew up on.Keep his water dish Very Low,as sometimes
Kits Strangle trying to Reach the water in a deep dish.We keep a Nightlight by
His bed also.Good Luck to you and your Kit! Jill.

Presumably these are pedigree kittens, as they are already 3 months old? You've missed 5 weeks of kitten fun, which is why I have moggies. At 8 weeks they are fully weaned and litter trained and happy with Whiskas Kitten food and a cardboard box to sleep in.
As with human babies, it's up to you what you want to spend.
