It is extremely important to get started on out with a friendly pet cat. A scratching, hissing or terribly frightened kitten will increase up to be a difficult feline at best. At most detrimental, the kitten won't become a friendly, loving pet. Once you've chosen a kitten that you want, make arrangements to choose 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 veterinarian (an animal doctor). The veterinarian gives it the first in some shots to safeguard it against common pet cat diseases. Notify the veterinarian if you intend to let the cat outdoors. If you do intend to allow it out, the kitten may need a shot to protect it against rabies.
Next, ensure that the kitten is neither too slim nor too fat. A kitten that is either all pores and skin and bone fragments or has a bloated stomach is likely to have an infection. Do not select such a kitten. Also check the kitten's nostril and ears for any sign of discharge or infection.While you are checking for signals of physical health, take note of the kitten's temperament. Hold the kitten to another part of the room watching how it behaves. Is it nervous or afraid? Does it respond to soothing petting by growing calmer? You want a kitten that adjusts quickly for you. This is a sign it's been dealt with by the owners of the litter, which is important in getting ready the kitten for living with people.
