Take your kitten to its litter box right 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 will not use a litter box if something about the particular brand of litter is not to their liking. Sometimes they will steer clear of the field if its location is not private enough. Try to solve these problems if the kitten will not use the kitty litter box from the start.
Kittens love infrequent goodies, such as fresh liver organ, kidney or cottage cheese. But dry pet cat food is the best thing for a reliable diet. Keep treats to once or twice weekly. As the kitten grows more mature, you can slowly but surely reduce the quantity of meals. At half a year, two meals every day are adequate. At one year, one meal per day is all that is required. If your pet cat pesters you for a second meal, give a bit more than 50 percent of the one-meal section twice every day. The size of servings is usually suggested on the feline food box.
Next, make sure that the kitten is neither too skinny nor too fat. A kitten that is either all epidermis and bone fragments or has a bloated tummy is likely to have an infection. Do not select such a kitten. Also check the kitten's nostril and ears for any sign of release or infection.While you are checking for signs of physical health, observe the kitten's character. Take the kitten to some other part of the room watching how it behaves. Is it nervous or scared? Does it respond to delicate petting by growing calmer? You will want kitten that changes quickly to you. This is an indicator it has been completed by the owners of the litter, which is important in getting ready the kitten for coping with people.
