"How Old is that Kitten?"
Kitten Progression: Two Weeks Old
During their second week, Darling, Denby, Corduroy, Tweed and Wembley continue to grow by leaps and bounds. By the end of the week, their ears will be almost completely uncurled and they will begin to crawl. They still depend completely on a caregiver—either mom or you—for food and waste elimination.
Eight Days Old
The kittens snuggle together for warmth and comfort and rarely venture far from mom, their nest, or each other.
Nine Days Old
The kitten’s eyes are all blue—and they will stay that way for the first couple of weeks. Their true eye color may not become completely apparent until they are 2 months old.
Twelve Days Old
The kittens are becoming more comfortable venturing away from mom, though they are wobbly on their feet.
Two Weeks Old
Now that Darling, Denby, Corduroy, Tweed and Wembley are more aware of their surroundings, they are beginning to interact with each other. Their sense of smell is developing, and they will hiss at unfamiliar scents or sounds—though the tiny sounds that come out are most likely not as ferocious as they think! They are also kneading, though they cannot yet retract their claws.
