All about Mercedes
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.

My name is Mercedes, but mommy & daddy call me Sades for short! I am the oldest in our family. I have a brother named Talon. I am black with a white chest and feet. I am very spoiled!!! I love my mommy & daddy very much, but do not like to be around strangers, and if mommy & daddy have ppl over I will hiss, growl and meow, to try to make them leave. It's too bad they just ignore me.
Some of my favorite things to do are sleep (alot!), eat and pick on my younger brother Talon. I pick fights with him all the time! It is alot of fun, but we really get along well. He is warm to sleep with.
My favorite time of day is when my mom gets up in the morning, as that means it's "shower time"! My mommy always uts a towel down on the counter so I can relax while she showers, but before she gets in she always gives me lots of cuddles and pats. It has usually been a long time since I've had any lovin, so I have to catch up on it! Sometimes mom is in a rush, and will try to sneak into the shower, but I will run over and grab her with my paws, no one can fool me!!
I love treats, and I know the word. My mommy has started whispering it, but I can hear her :) My daddy says I eat too many treats, but my mommy says I am such a good girl, that I get them anytime I run to cupboard and sit and wait for one :) I also love boxes and bags, grocery day is the best!! I am allowed to play in the bags as long as mommy & daddy are around.
My mommy & daddy have been talking about somehting called a "puppy" they say we will be getting one in a few weeks, I'm not sure what this "puppy" is but I am not too sure I want one.
Well, it's naptime for me know, until my mommy comes home from work! My mommy has included a picture of me doing my favorite pastime!
