The first rung on the ladder toward creating a good pet kitty is choosing a healthy kitten. Go to a litter of kittens about two weeks before they will be ready to leave their mom. They will be six weeks old. Ask permission to pick up the kittens and be very soft when to take action. Ensure that a kitten has clear, shiny sight and a gleaming, full overcoat. Check your skin under the hair for just about any problems such as sores, rashes or bald locations. You intend to choose a kitten that has healthy pores and skin.
Next, make sure that the kitten is neither too slim nor too fat. A kitten that is either all skin and bone fragments or has a bloated belly is likely to have an infection. Do not choose such a kitten. Also check the kitten's nose area and ears for any sign of discharge or infection.When you are checking for signals of physical health, take note of the kitten's personality. Take the kitten to some other part of the room and watch how it behaves. Could it be nervous or afraid? Does it react to delicate petting by growing calmer? You want a kitten that changes quickly to you. This is a sign it has been handled by the owners of the litter, which is important in organizing the kitten for living with people.
