Why does your momma cat keep moving her baby cats into your other momma cats box with her older kittens and how can you stop her from doing it?
Maybe you should take over taking care of her older babies and cut her access to them. She wants to look after them and feed all of them, she must be an excellent mother.
When the kittens are very young the mother cat keeps them clean, as they grow older they start to mimic the mother cat. In doing so they learn how to clean themselves
kittens are kittens until they are 1yrs old. If they are older than 1 that means that they are an adult
Unborn kittens can start moving within a few weeks after conception, but you may not be able to see or feel the movement until they are older, at around 5 to 6 weeks gestation. Since kittens are born after 9 weeks, this means that from the time you detect movement until they are born is about 3 to 4 weeks.
Just like their older counterparts, they eat, rest and chew cud, and repeat day after day. If they're young calves, they'll be doing more playing and suckling from momma than the eating and resting/chewing cud part that their momma would typically do every day.
There usually playfull but when they get older they get lazier.
you can let the older kittens around the new babies when the babies are around 4 to 6 weeks old
Yes, newborn kittens do have teeth. The kittens can't eat solid foods until they are much older even though they have teeth.
The mother cat lets the kittens drink milk from her teats. This lasts until the kittens are about 6 weeks old. The kittens will watch their mom eat her food as they get older and learn to eat what she does.
i think around 6 kittens for the first few years. my cat did since she is 8 now she had 3 last year and 4 this year when they get older they won't have as many kittens
Advantage is labeled by the manufacturer for cats and kittens 7 weeks and older. Under direction of a veterinarian, you can often use it on kittens 4 weeks and older. Fleas are extremely dangerous to kittens, and cause tapeworms, anemia, and other health problems.
it really depends, if the mother is living with the kittens in a house yeah, but idk about stray/ferels, probly not.
It could be a game, it's hungry, or maybe doing it for comfort. Kittens usually suckle on blankets and clothes when they have been taken from their mother too soon (10 weeks is considered the minimum age, as 8 weeks is too young). Some kittens will grow out of this as they grow older.
Kittens play fight as a natural way of learning, so they are prepared for when they are older and need to fight to hold and claim territory.
It would depend on how far apart the litters were born. If they were born fairly close together, it might be okay. Otherwise, no. The younger kittens could not handle the roughhousing the older kittens are used to.
A cat should only have babies at the age of 1 or older. If they are younger than 1 it is like a teenager having a baby.
She can have as many kittens as she wants. It would be better to stop breeding her at an older age because the older the cat is when it has kittens, the more problems could occur.
make sure you give your older cat plenty of alone time without the kittens -with you. your older cat may be feeling replaced with a newer version of herself. I had a Siamese who would hide under my bed until i locked the kittens out of my room for the night.
I've heard we are called kittens :)
They need to be older than 10 weeks old.
Kittens can make vocal noise as soon as they are born. Newborn kittens will usually squeak, and their voices will get stronger as they get older and bigger.
Answer: Newborn kittens are born deaf and blind. They open their eyes and ear canals at about 2 weeks of age. Most kittens are born with blue eyes, and the eye color will most likely change when they get older.
How is possible that a mother cat have 3 kittens and then have three Moore a couple months later and be different ages?
Well, of coarse since the first 3 kittens were born they will be older by a couple months than the new 3 kittens. :)
Kittens drink milk from there until they are a certain age and usually you give them water to drink because as they get older milk is a meal for them not just a drink. so if you give them milk, give it to them rarely and as a treat. water is best for kittens.
It is perfectly normal for a cat to have only two kittens. Sometimes a cat will have only one kitten. Usually a cat will have fewer kittens in her first litter, and when she is older she will have a larger litter.
just leave the mother and the kittens leave fresh water and food out for her. don't touch the kittens until the kittens can walk at least or if the mother cat trusts you and doesn't get mad and start hissing, you can probably play with the kittens at an earlier time. When the kittens get older only leave water and they will start to drink it. Never give milk to kittens when they are still… Read More
when kittens are very young they sleep when they are alone. once they get older they will find some way to entertain themself.if you leave out a cat toy they will mostlikely play with it and then sleep.
Cats and other animals smell genitals because the aroma is an identifying mark. They may be checking to see if the kittens belong to them or a mate.
Its normal for older cats to hiss at younger ones when they get annoyed.
The older cat would do that because a young kitten cannot clean itself very well, so that leaves the job to the mother/older cat to do.
Cats can have kittens for many many years. Allowing an older cat to have kittens is a huge risk on both the mother and the offspring, as the risk of complications are higher than that of a younger adult of one or two year's old.
older cats dont go well with kittens,the older cat wants to relax...the kitten wants to play.....then that leads up to a fight
Yes, they can. It can take time, though.
no they don"t unless if the person lets it go.
If you have five out of ten male kittens the best thing to do is separate the males from eachother, especially as they get older. Keep them away from female sisters, or they might do unexpected things.
If you have the mother cat, or another mother cat (they will sometimes accept ones from other litters! :D) then i suggest doing that. Especaily if they are very young. But there is formulas for older kittens. Newborns, i'd use a small baby kitten boodle and a mixture of goat milk, with a very small amount of sugar. But if it's a runt use only goat milk.
New born kittens hiss at you, even when their eyes are closed, because they don't know you and you scare them. It is a natural protective reflex. Older kittens hiss at you for the same reason. You scared them or startled them.
This word is derived from an old English word 'kindelen' referring to the young of some animals such as kittens and rabbits. An even older word 'gncynd' also refers to these offspring
Most Vets will not spay/neuter until the animal is 6 months of age or older.
calicivirus is a desease only a cat can get, usally kittens or older cats. humans cannot get it
No, not at all. A lot of vets will now perform spays on kittens around 8 weeks old. The reasoning behind this is that kittens, especially young kittens, recover much more quickly than an older cat or kitten. Many shelters will neuter and spay kittens as soon as possible when they come into their care.
Kittens, probably with the exception of newborns, will look much like a smaller version of their mother. Young kittens usually have very short bodies, legs and faces, which develop as they get older. Like adults, kittens have fur, whiskers, four legs, paws and legs, and two upright ears (with the exception of the Scottish Fold breed).
Kittens develop their own identity at birth, like babies. Some of them are very quiet and will only meow when they grow older and are able to walk, whereas others start the meowing at a very early stages. Having add various litters of kittens, I've noticed some kittens will meow to get attention form their mother, or even humans, or to express their food needs. Those are generally the most active kittens and the less… Read More
If your cat has kittens that are a little older and should be eating cat food, that's why. What happens is the kittens get so old that sometimes their teeth can swell up the cats nipple.
there isn't a specific age of when a cat is litter trained. Kittens naturally use the litter when they know they should. When the mother uses the litter box and the kittens watch, the kittens become curious and wants to try it for themselves. But when they start, they are usually 2 1/2 weeks or maybe older. They start using it when they start climbing basically.
most Orange cats tend to be a lighter orange (almost a white) when kittens and as they get older.
Start advertising for people to take the kittens when they're a little older. Don't worry about the mother, she knows what to do.
They'd be gray.. But some gray kitten do actually change colours when they get older.
This depends on the age of the kitten. For very young kittens (very newborn or even a couple weeks), the kitten's natural mother takes care of both ends of her baby. By licking the kitten's abdomen, she stimulates the bowels and bladder and tidies up the resulting mess. Older cats should be going at least once a day to a couple. Stool should always appear firm, never runny.
Kittens love empty toilet paper rolls; just make sure that their heads are bigger than the opening and they can't get stuck. Try any kind of dangling toys (feathers, etc.), plastic balls, but don't leave kittens alone with any toys. Supervise their play at all times. Do NOT use yarn as a toy for kittens or cats. Yarn can be swallowed and can choke and / or obstruct. Do NOT use your hands for toys… Read More
Since they can't see, I have noticed that they use their other senses to help them. Hearing is used to find their mother and when the mother purrs it comforts the kittens. They use smell to identify their mother. The kittens hiss at me when I pick them up. The kittens need to eat so they move their face on their mothers tummy until they find a tit to suck on. This sucking trait may… Read More
