Kitten Development Stages – Pet Tip 249

When we bring a kitten home for the first time to adopt it as a pet, it should be between nine and twelve weeks old. This is so the kitten has a chance to spend time with its mother and so that the kitten becomes socialized with its littermates and learns proper kitten behaviour. But what happens before the kitten comes home? This article will outline some of the important milestones in kittenhood in an effort to familiarize you with some of the stages of kitten development.

Kittens are born blind and deaf and they remain that way for around the first fourteen days of their lives. They use their sense of smell to find their way toward their mothers for nourishment and heat. They really need to stay close to their mothers for these first few weeks as they are unable to regulate their own body temperature. The umbilical cord typically falls off after the first few days of life.

Tigg is my name. I have had a few owners, or feeders, in my life (I think he likes living with the current one the best). Someone declawed my front paws, it hurts when I jump down from a window sill, I cry out a little just to let Jim know that it hurts. I was adopted from the Edmonton SPCA on the 5th of August 2003. I get fed Medi Cal cat food, only found at my Veterinary Clinic. http://www.hermitagevet.com/ , probably found at other clinic's but that's where Jim takes me.
I like to play with a cheap mouse toy, but only if it is attached to a string and then pulled around a room so I can chase it. I hate getting washed so I get washed with a damp cloth.
