It is extremely important to start out out with an agreeable pet cat. A scratching, hissing or terribly frightened kitten will grow up to be a difficult kitten at best. At worst, the kitten will never turn into a friendly, loving pet. After you have chosen a kitten that you like, make arrangements to choose it up when it's ready to leave its mother (when it's about eight weeks old). A day or two once you get your new kitten, take it to a veterinarian (an dog doctor). The veterinarian will give it the first in a series of shots to protect it against common pet cat diseases. Inform the vet if you would like to let the pet cat outdoors. If you do intend to allow it out, the kitten may desire a shot to safeguard it against rabies.
The first rung on the ladder toward creating a good pet kitty is choosing a wholesome kitten. Search for a litter of kittens about two weeks before they are prepared to leave their mother. They will be six weeks old. Ask permission to get the kittens and become very light when to do so. Make sure that a kitten has clear, dazzling eyes and a glistening, full coating. Check your skin under the hair for any problems such as sores, rashes or bald locations. You intend to choose a kitten that has healthy skin area.
