stairs. Stairs – Kittens can get serious injuries if they fall through the banisters, so invest in a stair gate that your kitty can’t climb through, or block the gaps between the banisters with a piece of thick cardboard.
By 12 weeks they should be able to do almost anything unless they are sick and weak. but it is wise if you manage the process of discovering the world gradually, one step at a time, supervised, etc.
Stairs are great exercise for cats
Cats love running up and down stairs (depending on your cat, her age and energy level). This can be a great way to get some exercise. Cats also love the vertical advantage steps give them, especially when they can see what’s underneath from a certain vantage point.
Sleep decreases and playtime increases. At this age kittens can run, climb scratching posts and jump off furniture with confidence.
There is no set age at which kittens are allowed to run around the house alone. They may only roam the house alone if they have already been trained in bedding and become familiar with your home.
While cats are known to fall from 30+ floors and survive, it’s not very common or thoroughly researched. That being said, studies suggest cats can fall up to 20 stories, over 200 feet and survive with little to no injury.

Blocking Access to the Stairs
If your cat can’t reach the stair carpet, then she can’t scratch it. You could try putting a baby gate in front of the stairs. You can still use the stairs, but the carpet is more likely to be protected from your cat’s unwanted attention. This will distract your cat’s attention from the stairs.

Two months old is the perfect time to start introducing your kitty slowly to other furry friends and people. Play gently with your kitten at least once a day to bond with you. Don’t take it personally, but by the time your kitten is around 12 weeks old, he may not be as interested in playing with you.
Behaviour. Seven week old kittens are becoming more independent, which brings with it both pros and cons – they are unlikely to be bottle fed anymore – and cons – they are very inquisitive now and also very mobile and coordinated. You have to keep a close eye on them.
