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.

Bennie & Joon are brother & sister.  They are named after the brother & sister characters in the movie Bennie & Joon.  They are the older two of a group of four (see Phineas & Gussie.) 
Bennie: a.k.a. Boonie, Ben, Benjamin, Booboo

Was the first long-haired cat I got to know.  I love brushing him, and he seems to enjoy it but he moves slowly away from me as I brush him so I end up slowly scooching along the floor after him. 

Has a lair underneath the bed where he lies in a hammock created by a sheepskin stapled to the bed frame.  He was very depressed after his dog, Ceilidh, passed away and would  spend a lot of time in his hammock alone mourning.
Joon:  a.k.a. Joonie Louise, Juniper

Loves to sit on your lap to be petted, for hours.  She'll purr the entire time and a bead of spit will form on her chin.

Enjoys helping with paperwork by lying on it, helping with the computer by lying on the keyboard.  She's very insistent and if you want to actually get something done she needs to be invited into the other room and the door closed.
