Kittens are usually born in a litter made up of around 2-5 kittens. Newborn kittens are completely helpless and are born with their eyes and ears sealed tightly shut. Only after 7-10 days do their eyes open for the first time, but it takes around another 8 weeks to develop eyesight equivalent to an adult cat.
They rely entirely upon their mother for the first eight weeks and spend most of their time sleeping and nursing.
