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.

Bootsi is a 13 year old DHS neutered male and came to us from a friend at the age of 8 weeks in 1992.
Boots is extreemly smart and loyal to us and his neighborhood friends. For a male he is not a fighter and settles confrontation by simply standing firm. He protects his friends the same way and simply moves bewteen the oposing felines.
As he is getting older now and has lost some of his friends, we have obtained from the local Humane Society in January of 2005 a 3 year old DHS neutered female friend by the name of Tanya as a companion.
She has been at Society for the past 15 month and needed a home badly. As she had a rough time prior to coming to the society, she has some behavioral issues which are slowly correcting themselves.  She  is extreemly smart and is slowly trusting us and as of late we can pet her, for short periods pick her up and she sleeps with us in bed. She seems to trust Bootsi and follows his every step. We are convident that in 6 month she will be fully comfortable with us.
