Our Baby World: Kittens

Fast facts about kittens:

  • These tiny lil gals and guys don’t just snuggle next to each other to be adorable (although they absolutely are). They do it because so their small bodies can regulate temperature.
  • Kittens eyes and ear canals are closed during their first few days of birth. Around 10 days (but sometimes as old as 21 days), they¬†start to see and hear.
  • Each adorable noise your kitten makes has a different meaning. A drawn out squeal means your kitten feels lonely (go cuddle with it, you monster!).¬†Shorter cries means your lil fur baby is hungry.
  • By the time a kitten is 4 weeks old, it will usually start sampling its mother’s food.
