The first step toward possessing a good pet kitty is choosing a healthy kitten. Go to a litter of kittens about two weeks before they are ready to leave their mother. They will be six weeks old. Ask permission to get the kittens and become very light when to take action. Ensure that a kitten has clear, bright sight and a gleaming, full cover. Check the skin under the fur for just about any problems such as sores, rashes or bald areas. You intend to choose a kitten that has healthy skin.
The veterinarian will also take a look at the kitten for indications of disease. Bring along sample of the kitten's shedding so that the doctor can look for worms.
