Kids need to be taught proper care for kittens because everyone knows they're delicate.
No, kittens can't clean, but they're impressionable and soak up information from birth to roughly 12 weeks old.
Kittens' natal blindness fascinates. Mothers' instincts guide breastfeeding. After 7–10 days, the kitten's eyes should open, but its vision won't improve until 5 weeks.
Many babies are born with blue eyes, but their iris color develops over the first year or two and may change as they become older.
Kittens can make you jealous. Kittens have superhuman smell. The vomeronasal organ helps them smell around 4 weeks. Since they're blind, this helps them discover mom.
Whiskers and fragrance help kittens navigate before they can see. At 5 weeks, kittens can see better than adults in six times dimmer light.
Kittens instinctively hide excrement. Cats learn litterbox training from their mothers. A couple throws in the box should teach them.
Why do kittens and cats knead things and people? Kittens massage their mothers to produce milk. They do this into maturity. Cats may knead you as a mother figure.
Real kittens are scary. Kittens—under-one-year-old cats—can get pregnant. Kittens can breed at 5 months. Spaying 8-week-old kittens is good news. Pregnancy and screaming menstruation symptoms are avoided.
