"How Old is that Kitten?"
Kitten Progression: Five Weeks Old
This is when the fun begins. Now that the kittens’ sight is fully developed, they are engaging in vigorous and exhaustive play, running around and exploring until they quite literally fall asleep right where they are. While they are experimenting with solid food, kittens like Darling, Denby, Corduroy, Tweed and Wembley are still nursing from their mother (or being bottle fed by you) a few times a day.
Thirty One Days Old
Exuberant play means tired kittens! Play—with each other and with you—is an important part of kitten socialization because it helps them bond with each other and build confidence around people.
Thirty Two Days Old
The kittens are being handled by people early and often to encourage their social development. Getting love and play from humans helps them connect positive experiences with people—something that will help when they are adopted into new homes.
Five Weeks Old
Showing their independence, Darling, Denby, Corduroy, Tweed and Wembley are beginning to demonstrate their individual personalities: Darling is a talker, Denby is always up for adventure and a good wrestle, Corduroy is brave and confident, Tweed is sweet and loves belly rubs, and Wembley is a cuddle bug and full of silly mischief.
