How Long Before A Kitten Opens Its Eyes?

The average age of kitten’s eyes opening is at around 7 weeks old. This is because the kitten goes through a period where its ears and eyes are extremely sensitive to light, so it cannot see anything. The reason why it takes so long for your kitten to open its eyes is because this process isn’t entirely controlled by itself, and instead depends on how much eye and ear sensitivity you’ve left in the kitten when you remove them from their mother. So if you think that 7 weeks seems like an awfully long time, then consider that just 1 week after hitting 3 months of age her ears will be fully developed enough for her to hear things such as noises coming from other rooms in your house!
