We have already talked about caring for a two-week-old kitten through five-week-old kittens. So, if you have read that article, that means that you are now caring for a SIX-week-old kitten. Can you believe it SIX GUYS! You have survived at least 6 weeks with your kitten! That’s longer than a month!
Kittens at five weeks old will be will walking confidently on their own and running in their little sprinting fashion. This is really the age in which they start to come into themselves. They really seem like a real cat! This is where I think the fun really begins.
If you have been around my blog then you know that I have recently rescued and fostered an orphaned kitten. We estimate that we got her around three weeks and had a big awakening throughout the process. I wanted to walk you through the information that I gathered for each of the different weeks of a new kittens life
First, let’s talk about how to tell if a kitten is three weeks old. A three-week-old kitten will have their eyes open. Their eye sight will be getting better each day and their hearing They respond better to sounds and can start to understand their name. Their ears are turning outwards more than at two weeks.
I want this to be a complete guide for caring for a kitten week by week. If you find a kitten, you want to try your hardest to keep with them with their mothers. Their mothers will be able to nurse them, keep them warm, and protect them. Mothers know how to care for their babies so if they can be left with their mothers, they should for at least 8 weeks.
