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.

Lucas is a lovable five year old orange tabby. Her mother was a stray, which we adopted into our family of cats, and her father was my neighbours cat. She absolutely loves giving hugs to everyone, except my dad. She's shy around him. She is playful 24/7, and as you can see in this picture, she loves to dress up (I don't know why). Her favourite pastime is sleeping, like most cats her age, and she does not like to be bothered when she sleeps, or else she gets really grumpy, and growls at you. She has only one beautiful daughter. She had two kittens, but unfortunately, one of them did not survive. She hates it if some of her dry food gets in her water, and she won't drink it until someone takes it out. Her favourite toy is her tail. The one time she was so into chasing her tail, she almost knocked herself out because she was twirling and getting closer to the coffee table, and then all of a sudden I heard a loud bang, and she was sitting there dummified. Her favourite spot to lounge is on the brown couch, so that she can decorate it with her orange fur. I just have to say that she is the sweetest kitty.
