No, it is not weird, nor uncommon. Believe it or not, some mother cats will allow their kittens to suckle for many months after they have been weaned. Most kittens will keep suckling for comfort reasons, as at three months old all its nutrition comes from solid food. If the mother and kitten live together, thee is no harm in letting the mother decide when she has had enough and stops the kitten on her own.

Generally about 1 month old. Your kittens teeth have time to develop. At birth, they have no teeth. At about 2 weeks old, their teeth are almost in. I suggest feeding young kittens soft kitten food.


They should still be feeding off their mother. If you don't have the mother feed it small soft puppy food.


Generally the mother cat will go off to a secluded area to have her kittens and she has obviously has chosen to have her litter of kittens under the bed. As long as she is going under the bed to feed them then they should be fine. However, at a month they should be out and walking about so make up a bed (or put a cushion with an old blanket on it) and take the kittens and put them there and watch to be sure the mother cat is tending to their needs.


No, probably not, ask your vet. When the kittens are eight or ten weeks old, the mother will have weaned them. If they are not weaned in time the mother may not have enough milk for all of them so you either need to find a substitute mom or ask the vet for some formula.


Kittens need a lot of Protein and Fat in order to grow and develop in a healthy manner. Generally speaking, kittens need twice as much Protein (if not more) an adult cat does, so don't be surprised if you are feeding your kitten much more than you would an adult cat. It is very difficult to overfeed a kitten. Feed it as much as it needs. Kittens have small stomachs, so the best method of feeding is "little and often", as often as four to six times a day for very young kittens.


Usually in a month or so


The mother cat's behavior is completely normal. Kitten corpses cannot lay around because of the potential for disease and attracting other predators. Survival instincts and maternal instinct to protect her other kittens wins on this one.


Most shampoo flea control is not safe for cats let alone kittens. You're better off giving the mother cat an advantage top spot, as it will also protect her babies.


Nooo an eight week old kitten can not get a baby! you gotta be a cat to have kittens.


half of a month [two weeks]


You can be sure after a month if not earlier.


Im no expert Ive only had a cat for about a month but the answer seems kind of obvious you may have to find a way of feeding the kitten yourself! Cat milk is always a good drink!


If the kittens are more than a month and a half old , the time has come for them to get independent and she won't nurse them anymore that is why she is hissing. The mother cat is also hissing at them because they need to become independent out there without her care anymore. It's one way to scare them away from herself since the kittens naturally trusted their mother to be caretaker at first. Also, it is to scare them away from her living spot. when she sees her kittens a year or two later, she won't remember them because cats can give birth as often as 4 times a year, it's too much to remember after awhile.



Well, anytime, if your cat is pregnant I would recommend seeing a vet to ask when they're due. I've heard of a mother cat giving birth in the middle of winter, in the snow! The kittens survived but BRRRRRRRRRRRR it must have been cold!


no and don't do that any way


they should be feeding from their mother if they are newborns :) but after about a month you should start to feed then soft and broken up food in small amounts x


If the Mother is still there, They drink/eat her milk. If it is not there, Try using a baby bottle and put warm Kitten Milk Replacer in it and feed them every two hours. That should make them feel like there eating from there mother. Some kittens might start taking an interest in very soft solid food around this age.



Mother's milk, or a nutritionallly equivalent substitute.


Its impossible to say. The number of kittens differs from case to case and doesn't depend on the mother cat's age, size or any other factor. At six months, she shouldn't be having kittens at all, as this is putting her life and her unborn litter at great risk. At six months, she isn't even fully grown yet. Letting her have kittens is putting her life at huge risk.


yes because it is very important


Anything after 5 months so get her spayed by that time. A five month old kitten is the equilivent of a 10 year old girl having a baby. Not a good idea for humans or cats. Letting a young and not yet mature cat breed comes with increased risk for both mother and litter. A kitten is still developing mentally and physically, and there is a high risk of health complications with the mother and the kittens. It is recommended to spay kittens before 6 months of age.


Find something else, look around, and get obsessed with something else. I am obsessed with something new every month. I would suggest horror movies to get Twilight off the brain. Oh, or get obsessed with schoolwork. Not such a bad obsession, really.
