Take your kitten to its kitty litter box as soon you take it home. Sometimes that first visit is all is needed. But until you are sure that the kitten understands, take it there after every feeding. Sometimes pet cats won't use a litter box if something about the particular make of litter is not to their liking. Occasionally they will all the container if its location is not private enough. Try to solve these problems if the kitten will not use the kitty litter box right away.
The veterinarian will also analyze the kitten for indications of disease. Bring along sample of the kitten's shedding so that the doctor can look for worms.
Kittens love occasional treats, such as fresh liver organ, kidney or cottage cheese. But dry pet cat food is a very important thing for a reliable diet. Keep treats to once or twice weekly. As the kitten expands more mature, you can little by little reduce the amount of meals. At six months, two meals each day are good. At twelve months, one meal per day is all that is required. If your cat pesters you for a second meal, provide a bit more than fifty percent of the one-meal part twice a day. How big is portions is usually suggested on the kitten food box.
