Who doesn’t love watching their adorable little kittens grow into beautiful cats!?

When we bring home a small little kitten, we don’t treat them as an animal, we treat them like our own babies. We feed them, groom them, teach them many tricks and cuddle them to sleep. It appears as our lives would absolutely be nothing without our little furball. As they grow up, they would have clear preferences of food, what they like and what they don’t like, their space, moods and whatnot.

As the days would pass, you notice how your little furball, which used to fit into your palm grows up to become a full-grown cat who needs a comfy sleeping place of its own now. Little did we know that when they grow up, they will be the boss of us but hey, we love them bossing around too! Today, we came across a subreddit “From Kitten To Cat” which collects pictures of the journey of kittens to becoming a beautiful cat! A lot of people shared pictures of their little babies growing up and it’s adorable AF!

So, why don’t we make all the cat owners feel all nostalgic? But it isn’t only for the cat people! Even if you don’t have a cat, you are going to feel it too! Are you ready for it? Start scrollin’!

If we had to sum-up a kitten in one sentence, it would be a living furball of cuteness! I mean, don’t we love when these cute little kittens meow at us? When they would take their baby steps and start licking our foot toes! God, that’s one of the best feelings ever! But all of a sudden, that little ball of fur turns out to be bigger and would stop fitting into your palm! How do they age so quickly?

To find it out, we decided to speak to Molly Devos who happens to be a certified feline behaviourist and also runs an agency named Behaviour Solutions. While talking to Molly, we came to know that her cat passed last year and she got a new kitten in June of last year, so 10 months later he seems huge to her – and he still has growing to do!

“A one-year-old cat is equivalent to a 15-year old teenager. Cats reach their full adult size at about 18 months to two years of age, but can continue to grow up to four years of age.”

Meanwhile, “a cat reaches social maturity between two and four years and this is when behavioral problems may develop,” warned Molly and added that “Interact aggression is the most common, as mature cats begin to seek dominance.”

If you feel like your kitten is growing too fast, you’re not alone. Molly said that “it seems like time is flying by when you watch a kitten develop.”

“They will double in size in the first week and gain about an ounce every two-to-three days. A kitten’s critical socialization period is between 2-7 weeks of age. In this short window of time, you want to expose your kittens to as many different stimuli as possible so they are not fearful of these things later in life.”

“By eight weeks the kitten should weigh enough to be spayed or neutered. Kittens will start to lose their baby teeth at about three months old and by the time they are 6-7 months of age, all 30 adult teeth will be in.”

And when it comes to a transformation, the biggest visible change you see in kittens is they grow into their heads. “Part of what makes them so cute is their big, round faces and eyes,” Molly said.

Moreover, “A kitten’s hyperactivity also starts to decrease at about eight months of age and usually by the time they are a year old they are seeking more cuddle time and less curtain climbing activities,” the cat behaviour expert explained.
