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.

WE took him in to catch a mouse for us and he did so we kept him and he has worked hard for us teaching the kittens we have gotten and how to behave and how to look after themselfs and the four children that live in the house and when any of the children are sick he stays at there side till they are better. The big guy is the best cat anyone could ever have.Smudge sleeps on his back on the middle of the floor or on any bed in the house that he feels he likes at the time
