Kittens must be at least 12 weeks old to be separated from their mother. The should not be taken away any earlier.

'The mother's 'milk contains a fatty acid called DHA. This makes up a large portion of the brain. It encourages healthy mental and emotional development as well as healthy vision. Kitten foods don't contain as much DHA as mama's milk.' So it is VERY Important they stay with their mother till 8-12weeks.

Also, when giving away a kitten or any pet for that matter; Provide information about That type of animal, to the New owner. (a brochure, a list, a website..) Any stranger can take an animal & not understand it's needs and such.

Such as: (Needs, How they behave, what's normal & what is not, what may be poisonous to them..etc.)

Well, you should feed it 0% milk. It may not have developed to regular milk since it was seperated at birth, or you could feed it goat, or cow milk.

Male guinea pigs don't normally kill the babies. They should be moved out before the female gives birth, though, as they can make the female pregnant again straight away, immediately after she gives birth.

Well if you know that the kitten is too young to be taken away from its mother, then why would you do it? To answer the question, yes. Kittens should not leave their mother until 12 weeks old, so if your kitten is younger than this, you can (and should!) take it back for a few weeks. A good breeder shouldn't have a problem with this, and it will not cause harm to the kitten or the mother. Just keep the kitten with its mom until you are sure that it is ready.

Cats don't actually have thumbs, but you SHOULD take it to the vet right away.

You will know when a newborn kitten is dead when the kitten is no longer breathing. The kitten will need to be taken away from the mother and disposed of.

NO YOU CAN'T TAKE A KITTEN TO A PARTY! The kitten will freak out and might run away or get hurt. DON'T TAKE A KITTEN TO A PARTY!!! Let your kitten stay at your house for a while, but the only other place a kitten should go is the vet. Cats don't like to go places. They're not dogs!

A kitten should be fully weaned before removed from its mother. Usually it's a general rule not to remove a kitten from its mom before 12 weeks of age, although weaning may begin weeks earlier.

Unless they are fixed. You don't want them to have more kitties unless you are responsible enough to find them good homes. Hoarding is not good for cats.

Answer:Six weeks.Answer:Taking a kitten away at six weeks is far too early.Many, if not all, cat breeders strongly advise that you should not take a kitten away from its litter until 12-13 weeks of age. The reason for this is this allows the kittens to learn how to behave around other kittens and people. Playing with their litter-mates and mother teaches the kittens what is and is not acceptable. Taking a kitten away at this crucial stage of development can cause behavior issues later on in its life as it will not have been taught otherwise.

Take the kitten to a vet and have him diagnose it, and use the prescription. If not, buy eyedrops for cats and give them to him as reccomended. If the kitten his seeming hostile or antisocial, you should get him seen by a vet right away. Those are signs of infection. It's a good idea to see a vet anyway if you'll do eyedrops yourself.

When a kitten is constipated, stay away from any dairy products and dry cat food. Canned food and a lot of water can be given to help the kitten pass stool.

You need to remove the kitten before she kills it. If you can't keep the kitten, you need to take her to the vet or to someone who can care for a kitten that is too small to be away from the mother.
