First of all, you really, really need to take it to the vet for a checkup. The vet will give you the best advice on caring for it. Since it is dehydrated the vet may give it a shot of fluids to help - again, I strongly urge you to take it to the vet.
Secondly, how old is it? If it is under 4 weeks the you need to get kitten milk - two brands are KMR and Esbilac - and a syringe with mL markings. The packaging will have directions on how much to feed. Do NOT feed a cat cow or goat milk, ever.
If it is 4-6 weeks it wouldn't hurt to give it milk formula, may help it get stronger and gain weight if it's malnourished, but you can start feeding it softened dry food or a spoonful of wet food. Older than 6 weeks and it can eat normal cat food.
Feed the little kitty either some warm milk, or beat up a raw egg. You could even combine the two :) dont worry raw eggs are essential to the feline diet. It wont give them salmonella, or any other disease.
DO NOT GIVE IT MILK! If it is indeed dehydration it can be very serious. How old is it, if it's very young then you need to get kitten milk (PetsMart) Also get canned food made for kittens as it has many important nutrients that it will need. See a vet if you can

DO NOT feed a kitten milk! It can cause stomach upset and diarrhea. If the kitten is already dehydrated it can be fatal! That goes for evaporated milk too. Read that on www.kittenbaby.com. If you can afford it go buy some milk supplement at walmart (it's in the pet aisle) or pet store. It comes in powdered or liquid form. It's what I use. Then when it can eat solid food I add alittle of the supplement to soften it in the beginning then gradually decrease till it's just the cat food. Good luck.
