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.

Fagan was one of four stray kittens I took in, I made a deal with my mom when I was down to 2, if she took one, I would keep the other.... thank God she took his sister.  Fagan is my little man, we have been through so much together the last couple years.   He is a trooper having over 30 vet visits in one year.  He has food and flea allergies, chews off his skin, is prone to depression, has two luxating paetellas, and now sponylosis deformans.  Despite all this and having to take holistic meds every day and get shots now and then, he is such a happy cat.  He loves the simple things, a drink out of the faucet, a tasty treat, snuggling cheek to cheek with me on the couch.  I have never once had a care about the money he costs us and am quick to remind hubby of how much he gives us in return when he does.    He has not a care in the world when he is watching his squirell friends outside or playing string, or chasing his big sister up and down the hall.  I love most that although it took years, he now comes out to meet guests and look for pets.  I love that he is always waiting for me on the bed at bedtime to get his meds and treats.  And his squeeks, they melt my heart...
