The evolution of a kitten
On day one the newly born kitten depends entirely on it’s mother, it
cannot even control it’s body temperature on it’s own. On the next day
it will know which of it’s mother’s udders contains the most milk. It’s
the beginning of a race for the kitten; first arrived, first served!
Kitties evolve quite fast, on day four they can crawl up to 50
centimeters to join it’s mother. After seven days it can smell it’s
mother to join her & direct itself without having any eyesight
yet. Day ten: it’s brain is more & more capable of coordination
of it’s members. Incredibly most kittens are capable of using the
litter box after 18 days! At three weeks old it can stand up straight,
see, ear and react to it’s environment. It’s at the tenth week that it
acquires a perfect equilibrium. No kitten should be separated from it’s
mother before it’s ready to go on it’s own which occurs on week seven.
