Generally, kits are only born one at a time, much like humans - kaasht do not have litters like other animals do. Twins and triplets do occur, although they are fairly uncommon (though not so rare as in humans).
Kaasht continue to grow throughout their lives, only reaching their full height at Level 8. A kaasht can live for a few years past 200, although they will not gain any more abilities.
As a rough guide, each level for a kaasht is roughtly the same as ten years for a human. For example, Level 1, ages 0-24, is the same as ages 0-10 for a human. Level 2, ages 25-49, is the same as 10-20 for a human, and so on. A kaasht is generally considered to be a kit while in Level 1 and for the first few years of Level 2, an adolescent for the rest of Level 2, and from then on, an adult. Elders are generally kaasht in the final few levels, usually 7 and 8.
As a rough guide, 2.4 kaasht years is equal to one human year.
However - upon reaching adulthood, a kaasht does not age like a human. Adult kaasht do not physically age - unless of course you count growing bigger and taller! Therefore, a level 8 kaasht may be the same as an 80 year old human, but they are much stronger. Indeed, Elder kaasht will generally be the strongest and smartest, which is why they are usually found leading clans and ruling cities.
Kaasht do eventually physically deteriorate, but not until a few months before they die. This means that old kaasht realise they are about to die, so as to get things in order and prepare themselves.
How long does it take for a kit to be born you ask? How long is a gestation period? Well to be honest, for each type it's different. The Desert kaasht are HUGE so its gonna take longer than for an Isle kaasht. Here's how it goes... from shortest to longest:
