Little Miss Daisy needs a forever home
We all know how kittens are adorable, cuddly, playful and curious. But there’s more to kittens that you may not know.
All kittens are born with blue eyes, because the pigments that create eye colouur haven’t developed yet. It takes two to three months for cats to develop their permanent eye color. Kittens also have extremely poor eyesight until they’re about three weeks old. After that it continues to improve as they grow.
Why a “kindle” of Kittens?
Everyone’s familiar with the word “litter,” which is used to describe a group of kittens. Another less-familiar term for the same thing is a “kindle.” The difference is that a “kindle” is a term specifically for kittens, but the word “litter” can describe a group of many other types of animals.
A litter or kindle of kittens generally has one to nine kittens. The number can be influenced by different factors, including the age of the mother. The largest recorded litter had 19.
Kittens begin to grow tiny and sharp teeth when they’re about three to six weeks old. These are their deciduous teeth, and by about six weeks all the deciduous teeth are present. Kittens have 26 of these teeth, while an adult cat has 30 permanent teeth. At about three months of age, a kitten’s teeth begin to fall out as the permanent teeth come in. Around six to seven months old, they usually have all of their permanent teeth in place.
