Pictures of Kittens: March 2008 Archives
Kittens have baby teeth when they are born. As soon as you get your kitten, it is a good idea to introduce him to toothpaste and brushing right away. It helps establish a routine and it helps massage sore little gums when they start teething.
At about 4-6 months they go through a stage where they are chewing on everything. Your fingers, toys, shoes, strings, anything and everything regardless of the dangers! This is a sign that your kitten is teething. They loose their baby teeth and their full-grown adult teeth start coming in.
All this chewing can be a problem, it may be cute to let your kitten chew on your fingers with his baby teeth, but if you let him chew as a kitten, he’ll want to chew as an adult – its not as much fun when he’s leaving holes in your skin!
Watch your kitten closely… you might even see a baby tooth fall out!
Something like Petstages chew toys are perfect for your kitten while he is teething.
