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,my name is Missy..my mom named me Miss Attitude,but she calls me Missy for short.
She rescued me as a stray when I was 8 weeks old at the local humane society.Thankfully I was only there1 day when she came in and adopted me...she says it was love at first site!!
I love to play fetch.My mom throws my play mouse,or my sponge ball, and I am more than happy to bring it back to her so she can throw it again(Like a hundred times a day!!)When I make her to tired to play fetch she lets me chase after the red dot of a laser pointer,and thats a lot of fun too.When she gets too tired at the end of the day I reward her with lots of cuddles and kisses.
LIFE AS A KITTEN IS GREAT!!!!!!!!
