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.

Echo is extremely elegant and dignified - a bit of a prima donna. She carries herself like a princess and demands to be treated as such. Yet, she is very curious and friendly, always interested in new people. With her delicate size and extremely vocal nature, she is aptly named. Her mythical namesake was a nymph who was transformed into a disembodied voice by a jealous goddess.
