It is extremely important to start out with a friendly kitty. A scratching, hissing or terribly frightened kitten will develop up to be always a difficult kitten at best. At most severe, the kitten won't turn into a friendly, loving pet. After you have chosen a kitten that you want, make arrangements to choose it up when it is ready to leave its mom (when it's about eight weeks old). A day or two after you get your new kitten, take it to a animal medical practitioner (an canine doctor). The veterinarian gives it the first in a series of shots to protect it against common kitty diseases. Inform the veterinary if you intend to let the kitty outdoors. If you do intend to let it out, the kitten may desire a shot to protect it against rabies.
Next, make sure that the kitten is neither too thin nor too fats. A kitten that is either all skin and bones or has a bloated abdominal is likely to have an infection. Do not select such a kitten. Also check the kitten's nasal and ears for any sign of discharge or infection.While you are checking for indications of physical health, observe the kitten's nature. Take the kitten to some other part of the room and watch how it behaves. Could it be nervous or terrified? Does it react to delicate petting by growing calmer? You want a kitten that adjusts quickly to you. This is an indicator it has been completed by the owners of the litter, which is important in organizing the kitten for coping with people.
