6 week old kittens
I constantly see people giving kittens away at 6 weeks old. Now that I am experiencing a mom with her kits, I know for sure that my kittens (who are 6 weeks old) sure wouldn't be ready to leave their mom or their litter mates. In fact, I'm not sure they would be ready at 8 weeks.
They are nibbling kibble and drinking water and using the litter boxes but they still nurse several times a day and have lots to learn still from their mom and their siblings. They look like little gray rats running around and are like watching the Discovery Channel! They haven't even discovered the outdoors yet and their mom sure does have plenty to teach them about that new world.
Maybe our kittens are just slow but I would love to hear from you who have raised a litter of kitties.
