I think that's a boy.

Five weeks old is very young to be away from his mother and siblings, kittens shouldn't be separated from their litter until they are at least 12 weeks old. Where is his mum?

I hate to disagree, but I think that's a girl. It's harder to tell at this age and fluffy ones are difficult though.

I agree that 5 weeks is way too young, and there are likely to be behavioral problems because of this. Is it at all possible she could go back for a few weeks?

You might be right, it is hard to tell.

I think we agree that this baby is too young to be away from Mom though.

Yes, cuddling with another cat is awesome! Is your kitten eating well?

Yes she eats very well and my other cat who is a boy grooms her. I think she will be okay?

Since you have another cat, maybe it'll be ok. He can teach her cat manners. I've seen terrible results from single kittens taken too young though. Nobody to teach them cat manners.

Is she eating well? Drinking? Using the litterbox?

Is your male cat neutered?

Yes she eats well, drinks, uses liter box only took her a day or two. She doesn’t have any behaviors yet. Yes he’s neutered and I plan on getting her fixed also.
