Understand that the kitten appeared even though weak, but it is possible by the fact that the eyelids began to move apart and eyes could be seen in the gap.
Wool becomes thicker, an undercoat appears, and the kitten no longer needs to be so warm as in the first days of life. But the baby still needs to stay close to the mother in a warm box or on the litter. The kitten cannot walk yet and continues to crawl.
