The company of an animal is always welcome in a home: and if this was a puppy, like a 3 week old cat to the utmost? How should you handle this fluff? Let's see some advice.
Puppy cat: its early days
Just like with children, i too newborn kittens they slowly develop all their forms and abilities. When they are born, kittens necessarily need the mom's warmth and they must be cared for in such a way that they can grow up healthy and healthy.
What do newborn kittens do? They sleep most of the day, they can't open their eyes; they are unable to control any part of their body, not even the small ones nails.
These, which are formed gradually, will become those in the future cat claws, often annoying, which give us a lot of trouble once the puppy becomes an adult.
The pad of a few days needs to be protected from any exposure to the cold: it will love blankets, throws or any source of heat that can make it feel sheltered and warm.
Of this, as of the food and his hygiene and cleanliness, initially the mother will worry, that she will be near her baby as long as necessary to make him feel safe.
If the mother is not there, it will be up to us owners assist the puppy with due attention: make him feel pampered, safe, protected, warm and with water and food always ready for him.
As with newborns, it will be possible to provide feeding time through a baby bottle especially for animals, from which we will give the baby the right amount of sustenance.
This is what happens within a puppy's first week or so. Let's now see a cat between 2 and 3 weeks: what changes? How does it grow?
2 to 3 weeks of a cat
After the first week of life, the cat will have a few more elements that allow it to become slightly more autonomous, but a little.
Will try to open the eyes and he will begin to distinguish, step by step, some outline of what surrounds him. THE sounds they will start to get stronger and the ears will slowly open.
The kittens still continue to sleep almost 24 hours a day, but having some little extra attention towards the mother, the people around, the world in general. Now everything seems to intrigue him.
The real turning point will be for the cat's 3 weeks. From this moment on, our friend will be more and more traffic warden and its body and the character they will begin to take a real shape.
At 3 weeks, the body of the feline is very similar to what it will become as an adult. His eyes will open much more often (usually the color is blue) and the world will take a sharper and more real shape.
Even the play of sounds will be appreciated by the puppy, who will be able to distinguish more or less loud noises and to perceive everything with greater vivacity.
Everything is now ready to start facing life: will they try to walk? Yes: the cat at 3 weeks will have developed by now stability on 4 legs, even if still a bit precarious. This, however, will allow him to wander around the environment that surrounds him, on an adventure.
The cat is a very lively and curious animal. When he starts walking, he will immediately discover everything that will attract his attention: every corner of the house will be at risk of exploration!
The object that will surely attract him from the first moment will be the one that will remain most useful for his needs: the litter. What can we do? Should we get the cat used to the litter box? For some, our help may be needed, but we will be amazed to see how most kittens are able to immediately become familiar with us, instinctively!
The third week of life is therefore essential for development and growth of the cat. Although he still needs constant attention and care, it is from now on that he will be more autonomous.
From the fourth week onwards, the kittens will have more and more control of themselves and will be able to start moving on their own, with less fears and difficulties.
What is important to know about such a small kitten is that you must always take care of him, constantly. We must not be afraid of being too oppressive: he will rely completely on us, as on his mother. Only in this way will he be able to grow as he should, trust us and become our friend and develop all his skills.
It's possible live with the cat If it is allergic ? The answer is yes! When it comes to cats and allergies, the main defendants are always our hair four-legged friend . THE cats they lose a lot of hair, and then we carry them from room to room with shoes and clothes.
The diet of the cat it is very large and includes various types of food. There is one food in particular, however, that everyone uses but does not know how much it is good for their kitten. Are you curious to know which one it is? Then read on!
This is certainly not new, other scientific studies have been made for the same reason giving the same answers as a result. Yet the latter has the value of reiterating a concept that not everyone has fully understood: a cat it can change our life.
Having a cat in your home may seem like an easy thing to do, but there are a lot of precautions for him to take. The first is undoubtedly to check the arrangement of your home and, if necessary, modify it according to his requests! The home, in fact, is the place where the cat lives and must be something for him that inspires safety, warmth and protection.
Have you ever wondered why yours cat do you often rub your head against you? If you are looking for an answer to this question, then you are in the right place! So welcome back to a new appointment with the column that deals with discovering what lies behind some behaviors of our four-legged friends.
