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.

Sprinkles will be 15 years old this year and she is the Big Cheese in our animal family. She never likes to share anything with our other cat Skittles. Sprinkles loves to carry her small stuffed dog in her mouth and she makes weird sounds like she is carrying her prey. She can tend to be a bit cranky at times and only likes to be petted, never to be picked up. She is set in her ways and we respect her space, we have no choice!
