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.

     I grewup in a very dedicated dog family.  My live-in girlfriend convinced me that we needed a Burmese.  2 years later the girl is gone but Kiwi is with me still.   I never would have imagined a cat being so awesome!  I know the breed is slightly unique in its interaction with it's humans but Kiwi has me grinning ear to ear daily.   She is very interactive and affectionate.  Her light brown fur is soft like a rabbit.  She barely sheds, doesnt scratch, and seems to enjoy all the trips to the:  cottage, her Grandma's house,  friend's whom love to babysit, even riding in my Jeep isnt an issue.  She is playful and cuddly and strangely even smells great.... I sound like a gushing parent but I had such reservations going into this, that I had to post my experiences here.  Cant go wrong with a Burmese it seems!
