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 every feeding. Sometimes cats will not use a kitty litter box if something about this make of litter is not to their liking. Sometimes they will prevent the container if its location is not private enough. Make an effort to solve these problems if the kitten will not use the litter box right away.
It is extremely important to start out out with a friendly pet cat. A scratching, hissing or terribly frightened kitten will expand up to be always a difficult kitty at best. At most detrimental, the kitten won't turn into a friendly, loving family pet. After you have chosen a kitten that you like, make arrangements to pick it up when it is prepared to leave its mother (when it's about eight weeks old). A day or two after you get your new kitten, take it to a veterinarian (an animal doctor). The vet gives it the first in some shots to protect it against common kitty diseases. Notify the veterinarian if you would like to let the kitten outdoors. If you do intend to let it out, the kitten may desire a shot to protect it against rabies.
