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.

Palomine just waltzed right in one day.  He had been trying to challenge and fit in with the strays I fed and one afternoon I opened my door and he just walked right in.  I figured he knew what he was doing so called hubby and told him we had another cat.  We did not plan to keep him at first, then after going to an adoption day and being looked over, Hubby took him on the road... in his big rig!  Palomine did great in the truck but got an URI, and after caring for him at home a week or so, I didn't want him to go back in the truck... he was too cute!  Now I cannot sleep until he curls up in my arms and purrs.  And when I turn over through the night he snuggles to my back to keep me warm.  He talks A LOT.  And I love it, and boy does he ever get excited about his dinner!  Sings for his supper and breakfast.  And if you don't watch it, he'll have yours too!  He will slap the food off your fork, sleeps on the vents, and genuinely reminds me of a hobo, we call him our junkyard cat because he is built like a pitbull (strong sturdy) and will eat anything!  Although he drives the girls crazy, he really is such a special and affectionate little cat.
