It is rather important to get started on out with a friendly kitten. A scratching, hissing or terribly frightened kitten will develop up to be a difficult kitty at best. At most severe, the kitten won't turn into a friendly, loving family pet. Once you've 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 veterinarian (an pet doctor). The veterinary will give it the first in some shots to protect it against common cat diseases. Tell the vet if you intend to let the pet cat outdoors. If you do intend to let it out, the kitten may desire a shot to safeguard it against rabies.
Take your kitten to its kitty litter box as soon you bring it home. Sometimes that first visit is all is needed. But until you're sure that the kitten understands, take it there after every feeding. Sometimes cats won't use a kitty litter box if something about this brand of litter is never to their liking. Sometimes they will enough time container if its location is not private enough. Try to solve these problems if the kitten does not use the litter box from the start.
