I have never seen one not fall off, so it should. It doesn't look red or infected though, rite? I am not sure if there is any thing you could put on it to help (like mineral oil or some thing like that) but I think it should be fine left alone and should fall off. Just keep your eye on it to make sure it doesn't get infected and in a couple days should fall off.

I'd wait a while, as long as it's not infected, or red. Aww, already opening their eyes! Can't wait to see the pics!

I don't know about cats, but human babies lose their cords anywhere from 3 days to 2 weeks. The best thing to do is keep it clean and dry. I wouldn't use oil on it. That would just soften it up and make it really yucky. If it starts looking infected, take the kitten to the vet. Otherwise, just wait for nature to take its course.
