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.

 Gator loves to play, he thinks everything, everyone is a toy.  He jumps my one cat who is real shy.  She gets it from both of them.  Gator is a ladies man (kitty) and a momma's boy.  He has to be with me almost all the time.  Sometimes it drives me nuts.  He loves to take out of his food dish one piece of food and bats it around for awhile them he tosses it in the air and eats it.  With 3 cats, 2 of which are females I have my hands full.  My oldest one hates both of them.  The other female just wants to be left alone and Gator just wants to play and doesn't understand why they won't play with him.
