Hi there

We bought a little kitten over the weekend. She is still small, would say aprox 6 weeks.

We are currently feeding her Science Plan for kittens. And she seems to be adapting quite well to her new home.

What I would like to know is for how long I should keep her in the house, up until how many weeks can she be able to go outside and know where her house is to come back.

Usually about 2-3 weeks is sufficient to get them settled in. If they have had all their vaccinations they can go out in a couple of weeks. if not they should have the vaccs and then be let out at least 2 weeks after the booster to ensure they will have developed an immunity to the common diseases. Always let them out under supervision initially.
