Take your kitten to its litter box as soon you take it home. Sometimes that first visit is all is needed. But until you're sure that the kitten understands, take it there after each feeding. Sometimes felines won't use a kitty litter box if something about the particular make of litter is never to their liking. Once in a while they will stay away from the container if its location is not private enough. Make an effort to solve these problems if the kitten will not use the litter box right away.
It is rather important to begin out with a friendly feline. A scratching, hissing or terribly frightened kitten will increase up to be always a difficult kitty at best. At most detrimental, the kitten won't become a friendly, loving dog or cat. After you have chosen a kitten that you like, make arrangements to pick it up when it is ready to leave its mother (when it is about eight weeks old). A day or two after you get your new kitten, take it to a veterinarian (an canine doctor). The veterinarian will give it the first in some shots to safeguard it against common kitty diseases. Notify the veterinarian if you want to let the cat outdoors. In the event that you do intend to allow it out, the kitten may desire a shot to protect it against rabies.
