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.

Windy loves to sleep in my arms while I am on the computer, plays a mean game of string on a stick, has a great future in kitty hallway soccer  and has the most adorable snore!  There is just something majestic about her when she is still and staring at something, and I love the little chirps she does when she is watching her favorite mornin doves out the window.  She is the boss around here and if I am not here she swats everyone... makes me feel so special.
