How Soon After Birth Can You Touch A Kitten?

The best time to touch a kitten is when it’s very young, preferably under four weeks. The reason is that your cat usually has a lot of energy and if you pick him/her up too soon the puppy will become afraid and start hiding away in a corner. It’s also great fun! If you have been told not to pick your cat up at all, then don’t worry – just play with them from afar instead.
