    My cat had kitten 2 weeks ago. the kittens are feeding well and growing more everyday!!

    Mummy cat leaves them more and more but always goes back to sleep with them, and to feed and clean them so im not worried in that sense.. but when do i need to start doing stuff?? like feeding them etc?

    Thanks x

    Hiya...ok well sounds like the mum is doing an excellent job, so good on her..roughly around 4 weeks is the time to introduce kitten food, but dont worry if they dont take to it at first...

    After their food, put them in the litter tray, by then they will be able to follow mum around, yes even too the litter tray!
    so will hopefully learn from her....

    Thanks very much.. i thought it was about 4 weeks but i wasnt %100 sure! They are all growing and doing well!

    How long should they stay with mum until they go to their new homes? x

    If they are moggies, then id say 8 weeks is about right, by then they should all be litter trained and weaned...
    some go at 7 weeks, but i wouldnt go any less than that to be honest, iv heard some do but its way too young...
