Kittens are born after 65 days, completely white, deaf and blind. During the first 3 weeks they are completly reliant on mum to feed them, toilet them and keep them warm. Kittens are always born in the bedroom where mum feels safe. They will open their eyes and ears during the first 10-14 days.
The colours slowly develop each day starting with the ears, feet and tail, by the time they are 3 weeks of age it is easy to tell which colour and pattern they will be. Kittens are sexed at birth this is the easiest time to tell. Our kittens are handled daily for weighing, health checks. Gaining around 10g a day each kitten will double their birth weight by their first week.
