Cat, a drop off we saved from zero temps last winter has returned the favor by giving us 4 kittens yesterday. Luckily they are all spoken for but how long until they can be weaned and given away? Years ago we had barn cats on the farm but they just did thier own thing and we never fussed over them any. Thanks.

Thanks folks, the kids will be thrilled to know that we will have kittens around for a month or so. Our Elkhound and Cat have become big time buddies and the fool is acting like a proud father, geez, it's like a Walt Disney cartoon around here, lol

ACK! Don't ask me about cats, especially the lil ones. I moved into a house one time and the previous owners had left 13 cats inside. Having never had a cat all my life and only dogs I got rid of cats and got rid of cats til I was down to only two. They were nice cats so I decided to keep em and within about a week I had one litter of 4 and another of 3. If that wasn't a hoot to watch them play ; ) It cured me of cats though, I'll stick to dogs from now on : )

6-8 weeks if I recall right,If your feeding cat food and their eating it,a bit less time than foraging cats.

4 to 6 weeks....can start giving can food at 4 weeks of age....kittens do better when weaned at 6 weeks but 4 weeks is also ok as long as eating on thems own and drinking from a bowl.....dale anne
