When can You Handle Newborn Kittens?

You shouldn’t handle kittens at least until their eyes are open, and they are able to walk with ease, and are already exploring their area. The reason being that momma cats do not like for anything to be near her babies. Mother cats are very protective of their babies, even when they know and trust the other residents of the home. To make mother more comfortable, you should leave it’s kittens alone until the kittens become great explorers.
