Kittens judge age

       Kitty

       There are more and more stray cats outside. Many caring people will choose to adopt and go home or give out cat food regularly. How to judge the age of a kitten is helpful to the feeding and growth of cats. So, we can use the simplest method to judge the age of kittens.

       1¡¢ Umbilical cord: if you see a kitten and the umbilical cord has not fallen off, it should not be more than three days.

       2¡¢ Eyes: Generally speaking, kittens open their eyes in about 10 days, which is an average number.

       3¡¢ Ear: at birth, the ear canal is closed. It starts to open on the 5th to 8th day. It can stand up in 15-20 days.

       4¡¢ Teeth: the order of long teeth is: front teeth (10-15 days), canine teeth (15-25 days), and trough teeth (30-40 days)

       Finally, it is suggested that if the milk cat does not have the necessary nutrition for its physiology, it should not be fed from the middle of the cat’s mouth to avoid choking.

       1¡¢ Check the cat’s fur and body shape

       1. Check the thickness of the cat’s fur

       The thickness of a cat’s fur varies with the age of the cat. Young cats have thicker subcutaneous fat than older cats, so their fur feels more comfortable because of the weather,

       The fur in winter will be thicker than in summer.

       2. Touch the texture of cat fur

       There are some subtle differences in the cat’s fur at different times of its life, and these differences can help you determine the age of the cat.

       The young cat’s fur will be smoother and glossy, and the old cat’s touch will be more rough; the old cat’s fur will grow gray and white.

       3. Observe the change of cat’s body shape

       As the cat ages, the amount of exercise will gradually decrease, and the changes can help you determine the age of the cat. Young cats are thinner and more muscular, because they have enough exercise; middle-aged and old cats are more plump.

       2¡¢ Age is judged by the cat’s eyes

       1. Check the vitreous body

       As the cat grows older, its eyes change from clear to muddy. The clear and bright eyes represent a young cat; the eyes of an old cat will become turbid and even have cataracts as they grow older.

       2. Check the iris

       Iris is another effective indicator of eye age. Young cats have clean, smooth irises; older cats have thinner irises, and there are many mottled patches of pigment on them as they age.

       3¡¢ A cat’s teeth to judge age

       1. Number of teeth

       As the cat grows older, it will go through different stages of tooth development. When your cat is relaxed and comfortable, try to look at its teeth to determine its age. The first teeth in kittens are incisors (about 2-4 weeks) and canine teeth (about 3-4 weeks), followed by premolars (about 4-6 weeks). Cats less than four months old do not have molars; from about six months to a year of age, your cat will have all the teeth. At this time, the cat’s teeth should be bright white, without any signs of wear and tear.

       2. The condition of dental calculus

       With the growth of the cat’s age, the cat’s teeth without cleaning will appear yellow calculus. Before the age of two, the teeth of cats are relatively healthy, and generally do not see the problem of dental calculus; between the ages of three and five, there will be yellow dental calculus; from five to ten years old, it can be observed that dental calculus is obvious; cats over 10 years old will find that every tooth has suffered from dental calculus.

       White teeth of young cats

       Teeth with severe calculus in old cats

       Kittens open their eyes in 7-10 days, open their ears in 3 weeks, and wean them in about 4 weeks (they can eat soft Kitten Food). Generally speaking, they grow a kilo a month, and the color of their eyes will be fixed after two months. The first estrus is about 6-8 months old (it can be sterilized after that). After 1-year-old, it is not long. Only the weight changes. It is difficult to determine the age of adult cats accurately. Generally, the wear of cat teeth can be used as a reference. The older the cat is, the more lazy he is. He is less and less interested in the external reaction. He doesn’t like to jump around and play. He can also judge by observing his expression and manner.

       The cat’s age is mainly determined by the growth of dog’s teeth, the peak of teeth and the wear degree, shape and color of teeth. For the convenience of understanding, the age of the cat’s teeth is introduced as follows:

       Adult cats have 30 teeth

       The young cat has 26 teeth

       About 14 days later, teeth began to grow

       The deciduous incisors of 2-3 weeks of age were uniform. Nearly two months old, the deciduous teeth are all long, white, thin and sharp.

       The first deciduous incisors were replaced at 3-4 months old

       The second and third deciduous incisors and deciduous canine teeth were replaced at the age of 5-6 months

       After 6 months old, all the teeth were changed into permanent teeth

       The permanent teeth of 8 months old are uniform, white and bright, and the upper part of incisors is pointed and convex

       One year old mandibular second incisor has a large spike, which is worn to be even with the small one. This phenomenon is called “Pinnacle wear out”

       2-year-old mandibular second incisor cusp abrasion

       3-year-old maxillary first incisor cusp attrition

       4-year-old maxillary second incisor cusp attrition

       The peak of mandibular third incisor was slightly worn, and the wear surface of mandibular first and second incisors was spur shaped

       At 5.5 years old, the third tooth tip of mandible was worn out and the canine teeth were blunt and round

       The first incisor of 6.5-year-old mandible was worn to the root of tooth, and the wear surface was longitudinal ellipse

       The first incisor teeth of 7.5-year-old mandible tilted forward

       The worn surfaces of the second and the first incisors of the mandible were oval in shape at 8.5 years old

       9-16 years old, incisor teeth fall off, canine teeth are uneven

       1. Look at the umbilical cord stump. A kitten’s umbilical cord stump usually scarred and peeled off three days after birth. If your kitten still has a small piece of umbilical cord, it means it has just been born for a few days.

       2. Look at the eyes. If the kitten’s eyes are closed, it means that it has just come into the world, but if the cat has opened its eyes, it means that it has been born for at least a week.

       3. When the kitten just opens its eyes, it will find that the eyes are bright blue. With the increase of age, the blue membrane will gradually disappear, and the eyes will return to the original color of the breed, which will take about 6 to 7 weeks.

       4. The new born kitten has flat ears and sticks to its head. When you grow to five to eight days, it begins to open and slowly stand up. The ear takes longer than the eye. Although the ear opens slowly at five to eight days, it usually takes two to three weeks to stand up.

       5. Dental examination is a common method to estimate the age of a kitten. A kitten within two weeks has no teeth. If there are teeth, the age can be inferred according to the number and characteristics of the teeth. The baby teeth of the kitten will pop out in 2 to 3 weeks. The first tooth that grows out of the tooth bed should be its front teeth. If you don’t see any teeth, you can gently touch the gum with your hand to feel the development of the teeth situation.

       The canine teeth will grow in 3-4 weeks, located next to the front teeth, long and sharp in shape. The cat’s premolar will break through the dental bed at 4-6 weeks and be located between the canine teeth and the molar teeth. If the kitten has all the deciduous teeth except the molars, it will be about 4 months old.

       6. The body weight of normal kittens born 1 to 2 weeks is about 100-170 g, which is smaller than that of adult hands. Most kittens of 2-3 weeks weight between 170-200 g, 4-5-week-old kittens weigh between 200 g and 450 g, 7-8-week-old kittens weigh between 600 g and 900 g. three month old kittens will gain a catty of weight each month in the following days.

       The cat’s age is mainly determined by the growth of dog’s teeth, the peak of teeth and the wear degree, shape and color of teeth. For the convenience of understanding, the age of the cat’s teeth is introduced as follows:

       Adult cats have 30 teeth

       The young cat has 26 teeth

       About 14 days later, teeth began to grow

       The deciduous incisors of 2-3 weeks of age were uniform. Nearly two months old, the deciduous teeth are all long, white, thin and sharp.

       3-4 months old, change the first deciduous incisor

       The second and third deciduous incisors and deciduous canine teeth were replaced at the age of 5-6 months

       After 6 months old, all the teeth were changed into permanent teeth

       The permanent teeth of 8 months old are uniform, white and bright, and the upper part of incisors is pointed and convex

       One year old mandibular second incisor has a large spike, which is worn to be even with the small one

       2-year-old mandibular second incisor cusp abrasion

       3-year-old maxillary first incisor cusp attrition

       4-year-old maxillary second incisor cusp attrition

       The peak of mandibular third incisor was slightly worn, and the wear surface of mandibular first and second incisors was spur shaped

       At 5.5 years old, the third tooth tip of mandible was worn out and the canine teeth were blunt and round

       The first incisor of 6.5-year-old mandible was worn to the root of tooth, and the wear surface was longitudinal ellipse

       The first incisor teeth of 7.5-year-old mandible tilted forward

       The worn surfaces of the second and the first incisors of the mandible were oval in shape at 8.5 years old

       9-16 years old, incisor teeth fall off, canine teeth are uneven

       Identification of the cat’s age: Generally speaking, the cat begins to grow deciduous teeth at 2-3 weeks after birth, grows complete deciduous teeth 2-3 months after birth, and begins to change teeth. By 6 months, all permanent front teeth are fully grown. One year later, the lower incisors began to wear, five years later, the canine teeth began to wear, seven years later, the mandibular incisors were worn into a circle, and more than 10 years later, the upper front teeth were worn into a circle. The age of the cat can also be roughly identified according to the growth and color of the hair. Six months after birth, the cat grows new hair, which indicates that it is adult; in the middle age after 67 years, white whiskers grow on the mouth; in the old age, white hair grows on the head and back

       Some people let a cat go when it is in its first estrus

       If you don’t need a kitten or something, you can wait for the cat to be more than one year old before mating. You can also see its physical condition, about one year old. The oldest is not more than five years old.

       Finally, it is suggested that if the milk cat does not have the necessary nutrition for its physiology, it should not be fed from the middle of the cat’s mouth to avoid choking.

       At most one month, my cat was about that big when I first came here, and the cat was born with how to use the litter and how to go to the toilet. What’s more, you’d better not feed it cat food because my cat was fed the sick one, and finally went to the hospital and the doctor said how the kitten could be fed cat food… Finally, it would be better to feed happy kitten’s cat food, It is suggested that you can feed it some egg yolk and milk, which will make it better. My cat always eats it when he was a child, not every day, but once or twice a week

       It can be judged by the cat’s teeth. Adult cats have 30 teeth. The young cat has 26 teeth.

       The teeth of a cat from both sides to the middle are:

       Upper row – molars, molars, premolars, canine teeth, 6 incisors

       Lower row – premolar premolar canine 6 incisors

       About 14 days later, teeth began to grow

       The deciduous incisors of 2-3 weeks old were of uniform length. Nearly two months old, the deciduous teeth are all long, white, thin and sharp

       The first primary incisors were replaced at the age of 3-4 months

       The second and third primary incisors and deciduous canine teeth were replaced at the age of 5-6 months

       After 6 months old, all the teeth were changed into permanent teeth

       The permanent teeth of 8 months old are uniform, white and bright, and the upper part of incisors is pointed and convex

       One year old mandibular second incisor has a large spike, which is worn to be even with the small one

       2-year-old mandibular second incisor cusp abrasion

       3-year-old maxillary first incisor cusp attrition

       4-year-old maxillary second incisor cusp attrition

       In 5-year-old mandible, the peak of the third incisor was slightly worn, and the wear surface of the first and second incisors was rectangular

       At the age of 5.5, the third cusp of mandible was worn out and the canine teeth were blunt and round

       The first incisor of 6.5-year-old mandible was worn to the root of tooth, and the wear surface was longitudinal oval

       The first incisor teeth of 7.5-year-old mandible tilted forward

       The worn surfaces of the second and the first incisors of the mandible were oval in shape at 8.5 years old

       The incisor teeth of 9-16 years old were exfoliated and the canine teeth were uneven

       Extended data:

       The cat’s body is divided into five parts: head, neck, trunk, limbs and tail. Most parts are covered with hair, while a few are hairless.

       The cat’s toe bottom has the fatty meat pad, therefore walks soundlessly, when catching the mouse, will not startle the mouse, the toe end has the sharp nail. The claws can be retracted and extended. The cat’s claws retract when resting and walking, and only reach out when catching rats and climbing to prevent the nail from being blunt. A cat has five fingers on its forelimb and four on its hind. The cat’s teeth are divided into incisors, canines and molars. Canine teeth are particularly developed, sharp as cones, suitable for killing captured rats, molar chewing surface has sharp protuberances, suitable for chewing meat; incisors are not developed.

       Finally, it is suggested that if the milk cat does not have the necessary nutrition for its physiology, it should not be fed from the middle of the cat’s mouth to avoid choking.

       The age of a cat can be judged by the growth of its teeth and hair. The growth of the cat’s teeth and the change of teeth are very regular. By observing the cat’s teeth, we can often estimate the cat’s age.

       After 2-3 months, the deciduous teeth grew well and began to change teeth.

       From the fifth month after birth, the cat began to change teeth, at this time open the cat’s mouth, you can often see the cat canine part of the gums slightly red, this is a sign of new teeth. In a week or two, you can see that there are four canine teeth in the cat’s upper jaw or lower jaw, that is, there are two canine teeth in the same canine tooth position, and one tooth is slightly marked. This is the new tooth. With the growth of new teeth, the deciduous canine teeth are gradually loose and fall off, and are vomited out by the cat. If you observe carefully, you may find the cat’s teeth, and keeping the cat’s baby teeth can be regarded as a memorial.

       When a cat is four or five years old, the head of the cat may lose appetite during the tooth changing stage. On the one hand, it is necessary to observe the growth of teeth in the cat’s mouth. On the other hand, it is necessary to provide chewy food for it to protect its new teeth.

       If it’s six months, then it’s oestrus and hair loss!

       Hope to adopt it~
