It is extremely important to start out out with an agreeable kitten. A scratching, hissing or terribly frightened kitten will increase up to be a difficult kitten at best. At most detrimental, the kitten won't turn into a friendly, loving family pet. After you have chosen a kitten that you like, make arrangements to choose it up when it's ready 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 vet (an canine doctor). The vet will give it the first in a series of shots to safeguard it against common kitten diseases. Notify the veterinarian if you intend to let the feline outdoors. If you do intend to allow it out, the kitten may need a shot to safeguard it against rabies.
Take your kitten to its litter box as soon you take it home. Sometimes that first visit is all is needed. But until you are sure that the kitten understands, take it there after each feeding. Sometimes felines won't use a litter box if something about the particular make of litter is not to their liking. Occasionally they will enough time box if its location is not private enough. Make an effort to solve these problems if the kitten does not use the litter box right away.
