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.

Hi!  My Name's Ella.  I am almost 4 years old and love my home.  I'm a little more independant than my brother Charlie but I still love to be picked up and held on my owner's shoulder  I could stay there forever just purring away!  I love to eat.  I'm a little pudgy but I'm on a diet right now.  I like sleeping on the back of the couch by the window.  I also love to be in the bathroom when my owner's are having a shower or bath; I like the warmth of the steam.  Maybe I can sweat some of the weight off!  lol  I love chasing the laser pointer around and jumping at my fuzzy mice!  Well, it's time to eat!  gotta go!
