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.

Skittles is our house comedian.  He only wants affection when he tells you so.  If you touch him without his asking, he will bite your nose, or nibble on your fingers.  He is the picky one of the house, too.  His favorite treat is a pretzel.  He doesn't mind Cleopatra, and, since we got her, he leaves Buster alone, he doesn't attack him when he walks in the door.  Skittles was our first cat and is named so because of his skittish personality.  He is also the most loving cat, but only to his parents and his human brother.
