There is nothing more comfortable than a new kitten! But with these adorable big ears and wide eyes, comes the inevitable (and a little less cute) phase of teething in the kitten.
From the early stage of teething in a baby to the teething stage in an mature in a few months, here are our two cents on how to relive this pleasant moment for your new furry friend.
How Long Will My Kitten’s Teeth Last?
Oh yes, the old question is: when do cats start teething? You will start to see the kittens’ milk teeth coming through the gums in about two to four weeks. This first phase of teething can last up to eight weeks.
The second cycle of teething usually begins around the age of three to four months and the 30 mature teeth make their appearance around the age of seven months.
In general? You observe about four months of teething during the first year of your kitten’s life!
Toys to soothe your Kitten’s teeth
But don’t be afraid, new pet owners! There are many toys for kittens that will keep your little stuffed tufted happy and safe, so that his sofas, laces and other furniture are safe.
Here are some of our favorite types of toys to watch out for:
Hard plastic: These types of teething toys for kittens often use a textured surface that is used to massage your furry friend’s gums while chewing. Such a toy should make your kitten happy to chew and come back for a new one!
Dental floss: These toys are usually made from plush fabric and strong dental floss stretched on top. Flossing soothes the gums when the kittens bite and chew the toy.
Fabric toys are often more focused on what’s inside and are usually catnip. Catnip stimulates a surge of energy and periods of play followed by a period of relaxation, which is ideal for a kitten who is teething. Just make sure that the fabric toys with catnip are sewn twice for strength.
Cat Treats Will Keep Your Kitten Busy
We all know that the way to the heart of any kitten is through its stomach. (although rubbing your head doesn’t hurt either. Here are some delicious treats for your teething friend:
Meow and Zen hearts
