Kittens have different needs at every stage of their growth, so determining their age is importantbut not always easy. That’s why we created our new Kitten Progression Posterthat you may have already received in the mailas a fun and simple way to help figure out a kitten’s age! It shows the week-by-week growth process, with pictures and short descriptions of the milestones of each age.

Remember: When a kitten is eight weeks old and at least two pounds, it’s time to spay or neuter!
