How to Tell Kitten Age

In this article, we will discuss how to tell kitten age. This article will also cover different stages of growth and the different kinds of teeth, which will help you to determine your new pet's age. You may also want to watch a video that shows the development of a kitten. If you are unsure of the age of your kitten, consult your vet. He or she will be able to tell you how old your kitten is by looking at his or her teeth.

When your kitten is born, look at its eyes and look for cloudiness. If the eye is cloudy, he or she is over 11 weeks old. Cats develop cataracts as they age. If the eyes are cloudy, it means the kitten is older. You can also estimate the age of a kitten by the weight. An average weight of a kitten is about 1/2 pound. A kitty weighs around 4 ounces at birth.

If a kitten is over five pounds, he or she is probably an older kitten. Once a kitten reaches five months, sexual maturity and puberty will be present. This means that weight alone is not a good indication of age after five months. You can also gauge the age of a kitten by its behavior. If it begins to fend for itself, it is likely to be older than 11 weeks.

In the early stages of a kitten's life, they begin to walk and begin playing. By three weeks, most kittens will have their first set of permanent teeth. Later, their second and third incisors will come in. At this point, they should be able to stand on their own and play. The iris should be clean and shiny, and it should be symmetrical. Eventually, you will be able to count the number of incisors in a kitten's iris.

When you are looking at a kitten's appearance, you will be able to tell its age by looking at the size and weight. During this time, it will have its incisors coming through. It will also be fully-grown ears. It will be able to explore outside its litter box. Despite being small, some older kittens may be older than what they look like. If you aren't sure, you can check for the teeth and gender of the pet.

When you are looking at the physical characteristics of a kitten, it's important to take into account the different stages of development. The age of a kitten is the exact amount of weight and height at which it is the same size as its mother. A cat's head is a reliable indicator of its age. The ears are bigger than the ears, but the size of the head is not the same as its mother's.
