– Week 5. The sight is fully developed at this age. You can start the weaning process. Weaning process is considered as one of the most essential parts of newborn kitten care. You can start by mixing dry or canned cat food with some formula for kitten to create baby food. The kitten might not eat the food immediately so you need to be patient. Kitten at this age will explore more often. The kitten might also start to use kitten litter tray as well. Make sure that the kitten bedding is made of material that can be cleaned easily.

Other sources may suggest you spray water from abottle over your cat, however, we find several problems with this approach. First, it requires your presence; second, it requires consistency to be effective; third, your cat will make the connection that water is squirted on him only when you are in the room; and fourth, your baby won’t like being squirted either.

We have , and the most effective ones are those that release a burst of air upon detecting movement. Unfortunately, they are impractical when keeping cats away from a baby’s crib, simply because they are loud.
One common tale is that a cat got into a baby's room and
Other important thing that you should consider in newborn kitten care is what types of food that you should give to your newborn kitten. Basically, there are several types of food that you can feed to your newborn kitten based on the kitten’s age. From week first to week 4, you can feed your kitten using kitten formula. At the age of five weeks, you can start to feed your kitten a baby food that is made of the combination between dry or canned cat food and kitten formula. At the game of six weeks and above, you can start giving your kitten solid cat food.Although we know that cats and babies can co-exist harmoniously in the same family, there are still precautions that new or expecting parents can take to help safeguard both baby and feline. Cats always seem to get a bad rap. Perhaps one of the most commonly held beliefs about cats — right behind the one that says that — is that cats will suck the breath from infants, ultimately killing them. There are two prevailing ideas to explain why your cat would want to suffocate your new bundle of joy: Cats love milk and are drawn to the smell of a baby’s milky breath, and cats supposedly get extremely jealous when babies usurp your attention away from them.
While a cat could accidentally suffocate a sleeping baby by cozying up too close to its face, experts agree it’s highly unlikely a cat would smother an infant on purpose. Reports of cat-caused infant deaths are scarce, so how did this tale become so common?
One case from 300 years ago may have given this tale all the oomph it needed to reach its current scare level. In the Annual Register, a publication that records the year’s interesting events, there is an entry for Jan. 25, 1791: “A child of eighteen months old was found dead near Plymouth; and it appeared, on the coroner's inquest, that the child died in consequence of a cat sucking its breath, thereby occasioning a strangulation." Coroner knows best, so it must be true, right?
Adding to this report is the fact that cats have long been thought of as the familiars of witches, so if parents (or even coroners) found an infant dead with a cat nearby, the cat was automatically blamed for the incident. Nowadays, however, we know that otherwise healthy babies can die without any known causes, an occurrence known as sudden infant death syndrome.A new baby is an adjustment for all family members, including pets. Cats love routine and consistency and we should never assume they will automatically adapt when an infant makes the scene. Assuming you’ll have to re-home your cat is a big mistake. Kitty is still an important part of the family and careful planning will help her adjust to the new living conditions.
