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.

Janie is a girl and Patrone is a boy.  They are twins.  They were found in the back of a semi trailer, abandoned by their mother.  They were only about 4 or 5 weeks when we first took them under our wing.  Patrone got sick and couldnt walk, but we nursed him back to health.  Patrone is getting bigger then Janie, but Janie still runs the show.  They are very playful and love life.  They love people as well and can definatly be defined as "lap cats".  They are getting bigger by the day and I love them more then life! :)  They sleep with me every night and always follow me around.   Today I let them wonder farther then our front porch and they were extremely curious and we not ready to come in when I wanted them to.  They are both cuddled on my lap sleeping at this very moment.
