Thank you for your query.
As you dont know the immunization status of the kitten, you should start taking antirabies vaccination from now .
The schedule is on 0,3,7,14 and 28 days or as advised by your doctor.
Take TT injection also if you not updated for TT previously.
Observe the kitten for 10 days and if the kitten is healthy afetr 10 days you can skip the remainig 2 doses of vaccine on your doctor advise.
Hope i have answered your query.
