The first rung on the ladder toward getting a good pet kitten is choosing a healthy kitten. Visit a litter of kittens about fourteen days before they will be ready to leave their mom. They will be six weeks old. Ask authorization to get the kittens and be very soothing when to take action. Ensure that a kitten has clear, bright sight and a gleaming, full overcoat. Check your skin under the fur for any problems such as sores, rashes or bald places. You want to choose a kitten that has healthy skin.
Take your kitten to its kitty 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 pet cats won't use a litter box if something about the particular make of litter is not to their liking. Sometimes they will avoid the package if its location is not private enough. Make an effort to solve these problems if the kitten will not use the litter box from the start.
