Help in telling kittens age

August 5th, 2007, 06:37 PM
Hey everyone, so our cat went missing and we put up posters for his return. In the process we came across a little kitty in the back alley and took her home. And don't worry our cat is back home and not liking the idea that he won't be able to go outside again ever. We think the little kitten may be feral or her mother was feral so we are slowly trying to get her used to being handled. I would like to know any tips on telling her age. She has all of her front teeth including canines and her bottom and top molars. She is about 10inches long and fits easily into my boyfriends hand. Don't know how much she weighs but she seems very healthy and all "functions" are normal. Will take her to see the vet next week if someone doesn't claim her.

Sounds maybe 4-5 months old... too young to be out on her own...:sad:

It's hard to tell if she is feral as they sometimes have stunted growth due to poor nutrition.

Good luck to the little kitty :angel: !
