All about Turd Ferguson O'Malley
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.

After we moved into a new apartment, it became clear that our year-old tortie Nibbler (http://www.pets.ca/petsites/viewpet.php?petid=2787) needed some company, and since Rick had always wanted a DSH grey tabby, we started scouring the Humane Society and animal shelter websites to find one. The same week Kerry's grandmother sent her $100 as a moving-in present, we found "Ernie" on the Toronto Animal Services website: a dopey-looking stray baby tabby. There was some kerfuffle when we went to go see him, as he was sick and they didn't want to let us into the sick room, but Rick was so sure Ernie was the right cat for him that we insisted, fell in love and took him home that day! We renamed him Turd Ferguson (after SNL's Celebrity Jeopardy), and added "O'Malley" because it suits his fightin' Irish nature, but he's quickly become "Turdlet" to one and all. It's taken a month for he and big sister Nibbley to start liking each other, but when you see them curled up and licking each other, it's worth all the cat-fights in the world!
