It is rather important to start out out with a friendly pet cat. A scratching, hissing or terribly frightened kitten will develop up to be always a difficult feline at best. At most severe, the kitten will never become a friendly, loving dog or cat. Once you've chosen a kitten that you want, make arrangements to choose it up when it's ready to leave its mom (when it is about eight weeks old). A day or two after you get your brand-new kitten, take it to a animal medical practitioner (an pet animal doctor). The vet will give it the first in some shots to safeguard it against common cat diseases. Inform the veterinarian if you intend to let the kitten outdoors. In the event that you do intend to let it out, the kitten may need a shot to protect it against rabies.
Although your kitten will decide for itself where it will sleep, it might enjoy a gentle, snug spot you prepare for it. A fluffy, clean soft towel folded and put in a shoe box that sits on its part, could make a good bed for your kitten. But the kitten might just opt to perch itself over a chair instead. You will need to help your kitten get used to using a kitty litter box to go to the bathroom. Getting the cat used to a kitty litter box is usually easy, because felines are by natural means clean and prefer to bury their droppings. A litter box is only a shallow rectangular box. The easiest kind to work with is constructed of soft vinyl. Into this you put feline litter, which comes in stores. Cover underneath of the kitty litter box with about two in . of cat litter.
