It is rather important to begin out with an agreeable feline. A scratching, hissing or terribly frightened kitten will develop up to be a difficult pet cat at best. At most detrimental, the kitten will never become a friendly, loving pet. Once you've chosen a kitten that you want, 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 animal medical practitioner (an animal doctor). The veterinarian gives it the first in a series of shots to safeguard it against common feline diseases. Inform the veterinary if you would like to let the feline outdoors. If you do intend to let it out, the kitten may need a shot to safeguard it against rabies.
Take your kitten to its litter box as soon you bring it home. Sometimes that first visit is all is necessary. But until you're sure that the kitten understands, take it there after every feeding. Sometimes felines will not use a litter box if something about the particular make of litter is not to their liking. Once in a while they will stay away from the container if its location is not private enough. Try to solve these problems if the kitten does not use the kitty litter box right away.
