Once a queen has been bred, she remains part of the household until 2-
Normal gestation for Tonkinese is 62-
Following birth, the queen will remain in the cage in the bedroom until the kittens are weaned, somewhere near 6 weeks of age. During the nursery time period, the kittens are handled daily, massaged to stimulate growth and to begin the all important socialization process. At approximately 1 month of age, the kittens are introduced to the household fur family for small time periods each day, with the queen and both of us in attendance. Once the kittens are completely weaned, they will remain in the cage until at least 3 months of age for both safety and warmth. (It should be noted that kittens can not regulate their body temperature until 3 months of age) At 3 months, depending on size, they will be allowed the freedom of the house during the day, but caged at night.
Since most of our fur family sleeps on the bed with us, we are careful to make sure small kittens don't get caught in blankets or rolled on!
