Day 7 – You look Purrrfect

Wow it’s been a whole week already!

When weighing the kittens last night, we notice a couple have started to open their eyes x

Did you know that how long it takes kittens open their eyes actually depends on the length of their fur!

The long haired cats will open their eyes on a much later schedule than a short haired cat. There is no scientific research to verify why this may be, but it appears to run true throughout every breed. Short haired kittens will often peep out at the world for the first time between 5 to 8 days after birth. Long haired kittens don’t see what they are groping at until somewhere around 10 to 14 days old. Mixed litters (those with both short haired and long haired kittens) will actually develop at different rates because of this unique difference.
