If the veterinarian gives you medication for the kitten, ensure that you or one of your parents understands how to give medication. Ask the veterinary or the vet's associate to show the correct method. Give the drugs to the kitten exactly as aimed by the veterinarian. Twice every day is inadequate if the kitten is supposed to get medication three times a day. Young kittens prefer to eat every few hours, about four times every day. At each meals, provide a saucer of fresh dairy alongside a tiny dish of dry cat food. For one or two of the meals, blend in canned food (meats or fish). When the kitten gets diarrhea, move to powdered dairy. When the diarrhea continues, reduce the amount of dairy and the number of meals at which it is served.
The veterinary will also analyze the kitten for symptoms of disease. Bring along sample of the kitten's dropping so that the doctor can check for worms.
Take your kitten to its litter box as soon you bring it home. Sometimes that first visit is all is needed. But until you are sure that the kitten understands, take it there after each feeding. Sometimes pet cats won't use a litter box if something about the particular brand of litter is not to their liking. Sometimes they will stay away from the container if its location is not private enough. Make an effort to solve these problems if the kitten does not use the litter box from the start.
