    Yep! We lose our baby teeth and get our grownup teeth at about that age! Kitty tooth fairy?

    We lose our baby teeth and grown in permanent teeth at varying times up to 6 months of age (generally). However, we should be seen by a vet to make sure this process is going along properly. Just like humans would take their children to a dentist, we need to see the vet, who also serves as our dentist. P.S. I'm must younger than your kittens so I haven't gone through this yet. I hope it doesn't hurt! Could you ask yours and let me know :-)

    Yes they do, anywhere from around four to six months. Most of the time you won't even know it has happened because they will just swallow them. Everything sounds perfectly normal with your two kitties.
