"How Old is that Kitten?"
Kitten Progression: Seven Weeks Old

The kittens are pretty self-sufficient at this point, though Darling, Denby, Corduroy, Tweed, and Wembley still get comfort from mom.

45 Days Old

As part of socialization, the kittens are being introduced to different parts of the house, different objects, different pets and people, and different experiences—all to help them adjust to new situations.

47 Days Old

The kittens have been introduced to scratching posts and had their claws trimmed for the first time. Training the kittens to understand these routines helps prepare them for their new homes.

Wembley is comfortable with her routine.


Seven Week Old

Almost fully weaned from mom, the kittens are growing up! These little kittens are hitting their stride and becoming independent.


Denby is almost fully weaned and is eating regular food.
