Toys to Relieve Your Kitten Teething Woes

There is nothing more comfortable than a new kitten! But with these adorable big ears and wide open eyes, comes the inevitable (and a little less cute) teething phase in the kitten.

From the initial stage of teething in a baby to the teething stage in a mature person in a few months, here are our two cents on how to relive this pleasant moment for your new four-legged 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 initial phase of teething can last up to eight weeks.

The second cycle of teething usually begins around the age of three or four months and the 30 mature teeth appear around seven months.

In general? You observe about four months of teething during the initial year of your kitten’s life!
