Take your kitten to its litter box right you take it home. Sometimes that first visit is all is needed. But until you're sure that the kitten understands, take it there after each feeding. Sometimes felines won't use a litter box if something about the particular brand of litter is not to their liking. Occasionally they will all the package 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.
It is rather important to get started on out with an agreeable kitten. A scratching, hissing or terribly frightened kitten will increase up to be always a difficult pet cat at best. At worst, the kitten will never become a friendly, loving pet. Once you've chosen a kitten that you want, make arrangements to choose it up when it's prepared to leave its mother (when it's about eight weeks old). A day or two after you get your brand-new kitten, take it to a veterinarian (an animal doctor). The veterinary will give it the first in some shots to safeguard it against common kitty diseases. Tell the vet if you intend to let the kitty outdoors. If you do intend to allow it out, the kitten may desire a shot to protect it against rabies.
