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.

Hi catlovers, my name is Marsha. I was rescued on a cold & wet October day with mud caked paws from a swamp road. I sleep right on top of my human Mom, even though I've been here for 13 years almost, I'm still very worried about being cast out again, which I'm promised never will happen. I love my IAMS soft cat food, hate it when it sits for more than an hour though. I like also to sit on top of the stereo as I hate cool weather.  Favourite toy, my humans fingers and toes under the sheets. I've been widowed 3 times, but I'm hoping my human Dad will allow me to have another kitty husband, I miss my last big boy so much.
