Kittens open their eyes between 9-14 days, will start exploring on their little wobbly legs. at 4 weeks they will start using the litter box if they can get into it, and they will be grooming themselves. Between 5-7 weeks they will start eating food, but will still nurse.

Kittens are born without teeth. When the reach the age of 25 to 30 days the get "baby teeth". Kittens should have about 26 teeth by 45 days. The baby teeth are replaced with permanent teeth by the age of 6 months.

Kittens that still have their umbilical cords attached are 3 days or younger. Their eyes open between 7-10 days. When their ears stand up they are between 3-4 weeks. If they are just starting to eat solid food they are about 4 weeks, if they are eating solid food on their own they are between 6-8 weeks.
