It is extremely important to get started on out with a friendly kitty. A scratching, hissing or terribly frightened kitten will grow up to be a difficult kitty at best. At most severe, the kitten won't become a friendly, loving dog or cat. Once you've chosen a kitten that you want, make arrangements to pick it up when it is prepared to leave its mom (when it's about eight weeks old). A day or two once you get your new kitten, take it to a animal medical practitioner (an pet doctor). The vet gives it the first in some shots to safeguard it against common cat diseases. Notify the vet if you want to let the kitty outdoors. If you do plan to allow it out, the kitten may need a shot to protect it against rabies.
Kittens love occasional treats, such as fresh liver, kidney or cottage parmesan cheese. But dry pet cat food is a very important thing for a steady diet. Keep snacks to a few times a week. As the kitten expands aged, you can steadily reduce the number of meals. At six months, two meals each day are ample. At one year, one meal per day is all that is needed. If your kitty pesters you for another meal, give a bit more than 50 percent of the one-meal part twice per day. How big is portions is usually suggested on the kitten food box.
